Situated in Sissinghurst, one of the most picturesque corners of Kent, The Milk House is a village pub at the heart of the community. A former 16th century hall house, with timber beams and a Tudor fireplace, the pub welcomes loyal locals, along with visitors from further afield, serving a selection of local beers, cask ales and great wines by the glass, including several from the area’s renowned vineyards. Our bar Grazing Menu is available throughout the day to enjoy in front of a crackling fire during winter or on our sun-soaked terrace in the summer.
Though we’re very much enjoying this long Indian summer, and have avoided contemplating colder climes until now, we know that Christmas is an extra special time of year and it’s important to plan ahead. So we’ve come up with a range of menus to help every group of friends, family and work colleagues celebrate the festive season with us at The Milk House!
For parties of 8–16, there’s a Set Menu with 2 courses for £20, 3 courses for £26 and – for those who really want to push the sleigh out! – 3 courses with Prosecco and coffee for £32. The menu’s packed with seasonal treats, including an extravagant royal roast and luxurious mince pies, served in the jolly surroundings of our Dining Room.
For larger groups, or those who fancy something a bit more relaxed, in the bar we’re offering a Bowl Food Menu to suit parties of 10–30. For £10/person, Christmas revellers can enjoy party favourites, such as Thai green curry and boeuf bourguignon. With three bowls a head, we know you’ll have a hearty party!
If you’re planning a drinks party at The Milk House this December, why not complement your Christmas tipple with a selection of bar snacks from our Grazing Menu at £8/person. In the spirit of giving and due to demand, we’ll be bringing back some of your favourites from 2014, including our popular pink salt and pepper squid!
Our bar will be open on Christmas Day, so if it all gets too much at home we hope you’ll meet us under the mistletoe – the perfect hiding spot from the heat of the kitchen and disputes over Scrabble with relatives!
On Boxing Day and New Year’s Day we’ll be extending lunch service for an extra hour for those of you who want the morning to walk off the excesses of the day before. And on New Year’s Day we hope you’ll also be tempted to join us for a special brunch until midday, with plenty of Bloody Marys to soothe sore heads!
Speaking of New Year, we’re also making some exciting plans for New Year’s Eve with cocktails, rock and roll and lots more to get 2015 off with a bang! The Milk House fun committee are making provisions for extra party space on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve – it’s going to be a lot of fun.
We’re expecting a large delivery from Father Christmas – from crackers, candy canes and carols to mulled cider and roast chestnuts – to ensure great merriment at The Milk House this December. And FC might even make an appearance himself…! We’ll start stoking the open fire and look forward to seeing you all!
Sissinghurst is the perfect place for a family day out, especially during the warmer months, with the historic castle and gardens just half a mile’s walk from The Milk House. Parking is ample and dogs are welcome.
