We accept online bookings for parties of less than ten. If you’d like to book for a larger group, please drop us an email to check availability. Please note that for for groups of ten or more a discretionary service charge of 10% will be added to the bill and we require tables to pre-order 24 hours in advance.
We have a really busy Dining Room so we allocate a certain length of dining time for each table, but if you’d like longer just let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. We don’t currently take bookings for tables in the Bar or on the Terrace, but if you call ahead we can let you know how busy we’re looking. On Sunday the Dining Room is closed from 3pm but our Pizza Menu is available until 9pm.
Our delicious wood-fired pizzas are served on the Terrace and in the Bar from 12–9pm during Spring, Summer and Autumn. Pizza is not available in the Dining Room.
In celebration of all the good things in life, we hope you’ll enjoy our four-day full fat festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Milk Fest is back and better than ever. Kicking off on Friday 25 August, we’re planning a long weekend of fun all the way through to Monday 28 August. It’s set to be a feel good feast of fun for the whole family.
We’ve put together a programme that showcases the cream of Kent, with music from top local talent and fabulous food and drink from some of our wonderful suppliers. From cocktails to hot dogs, face-painting to juggling, there’ll be something to put a smile on everyone’s face.
To mark the occasion, we’ll also be putting our Full Fat Festival Top back on tap at a cheap and beerful £3.50/pint. A tipple or two of this bespoke Kentish bitter, crafted just for us by Old Dairy Brewery, is sure to get you in the party mood. So bring a rug, make yourself comfortable, tuck into some fine festival fodder and enjoy the tunes!View Schedule
Milk Fest kicks off on Friday night with some very special summer spritzers, colourful cocktails created to make your evening sparkle. Let your hair down and have fun with a flamboyant Flushed Flamingo, an exotic Tipsy Toucan or a raucous Crocked Canary. As the sun sets over the Terrace, there’ll be music from singer/songwriters Nick Eve and Pete Gardiner, followed by some high-energy funk, pop and rock from Indigo Sea. A perfect start to your long weekend!
Ahoy there! On Saturday, it’s all hands on deck for a day of swashbuckling family fun. Grab your flip-flops and drop your anchor in a deckchair while the kids enjoy the bouncy sandcastle, face-painting and hunt for buried treasure in the sandpit. There’ll be jolly entertainment from The Flying Bazazi Brothers too, with a performance and workshop hosted by Applause Outdoors. Expect dancing, juggling, diabolo and more!
If all that leaves you feeling peckish, tuck into sizzling sausages from the full-fat festival BBQ menu, taking centre stage on our terrace from midday to 9pm. Naturally all pirates love pudding, so shiver your timbers whippy ice cream too. There’ll be a feast for the ears, too, with acoustics from Finlay Leslie, Daniel Glover, and Some Anyone before Josh Renton & The Wildfires, Narratones and the Devil’s Cut Combo rock us into the evening!
Festival fever continues in Sissinghurst on Sunday with a ‘homegrown and handmade’ fair showcasing some of our favourite local people. Sample some of the fine Kent produce featured on our seasonal menus from Moons Green Charcuterie, Claire’s Bread, Wylde & Shrub, Kent Crisps and Speakeasy Ice Creams then wash it all down with an artisanal G&T from Anno Distillers or a cuppa cold brew from Debonair Tea.
You’ll also have a chance to meet Romney Marsh Wools – who supply our luxurious lanolin bath products – and Betty & Dodge, who create gorgeous hand-engraved items from English oak. Alongside all this, artists Sandy Dooley and Amy Devlin will be displaying their colourful paintings inspired by the local landscape and encouraging all our visitors to leave their mark on a collaborative canvas.
Running alongside this artisan fair, there’ll be performances from Ramblin’ Rags, Alana Hazzard, Orfila and Milky Negro, with The Caress, Caleb Howard-Almond and The Bay Rays bringing the night to an exuberant conclusion. Meanwhile our full-fat festival BBQ will continue to cook up chargrilled treats. What better way to while away your Sunday?
It’s not over yet! On Monday, you can’t miss the Sissinghurst Village Fete, one of Kent’s most glorious summer events, combined with the hotly-anticipated dog show. We’ll be there, pulling pints from the ‘pop up’ Hopper Hut bar.
At the end of the fete, we’ll be keeping the party spirit alive back at the pub, with tunes from Kyla Stroud and Fred Clark, followed by the super fun Tragic Mushrooms. Join us for the Bank Holiday’s last hurrah – and dance your socks off because there’s nothing more splendid than summer in Sissinghurst!
We’re lucky to be part of a wonderful local community, so we’ll be raising money all weekend for village organisations, including Sissinghurst’s Trinity Church.
We’re making plans to ensure a fun, jolly and delicious Christmas in Sissinghurst with seasonal dishes and perfect puddings, best enjoyed with a mug of mulled cider or something sparkling in front of our open fire.
Alongside festive treats and tipples across our Winter menus, we’ve put together a special party menu to suit groups large and small, guaranteed to get you in a merry mood. We’re taking bookings from Monday 4 December onwards so bring your family, bring your friends and celebrate in style.
Our Christmas calendar will be packed with carolling, concerts and more. There are big celebrations planned for Christmas Eve and New Year’s too and we hope to see you under the mistletoe!
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. Cranbrook, Kent’s smallest town and one of the prettiest, is 1.8 miles from Sissinghurst village. The journey takes five minutes by road, and there are regular buses. Alternatively, a pleasant route can be taken on foot across the fields.
From nearby Staplehurst station, you can reach London by train in less than an hour. If you’re hitting the road instead, our car park is ample. Both The Channel Tunnel and Dover are within an hour’s drive. Gatwick Airport is about an hour away with Heathrow and Stansted not much further.
