Village Pub

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.

Dining

The Milk House prides itself on its food keeping it simple by working with the seasons and using only the freshest produce from local suppliers to create an unfussy menu with something for everyone. In addition to our Classic Menu with its range of classic pub fare, our Dining Room is open for lunch and dinner with a menu offering a more adventurous selection of starters, main courses and puddings. Our Sunday Lunch Menu includes a choice of delicious traditional roasts and alongside these menus there are wholesome choices for children to keep both the young and grownups satisfied!

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.
