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!

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.  We require tables of 10 or more to pre select their choices and send to us 24 hours ahead of their booking.

Please note there is a discretionary service charge of 10% applied to tables of 4 or more.

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 Sundays the Dining Room closes at 3pm.

Terrace

Whether you are joining us for lunch or dinner on the terrace or relaxing with a drink and something from our Grazing Menu on the lawn, our garden is a great place to while away the summer months. Our outside bar – the TMH Hopper Hut – is inspired by the temporary huts provided for hop-pickers on Kentish farms in the 19th century. It’s the perfect ‘hopstop’ for a cold bottled beer, jug of Pimm’s or glass of rosé in the sunshine!
Our terrace is also home to a traditional wood-fired pizza oven serving homemade pizzas topped with local charcuterie, cheese, seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs, perfect for sharing (or not!) around our large community table. Alongside our adult options, there’s a Children’s Pizza Menu, flatbreads, and seasonal salads.

PIZZA MENU

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.

Rooms

For those who want to spend a little more time in the village, The Milk House also has four beautifully-appointed bedrooms: two double rooms, one twin room and a family room which sleeps up to four people. Spacious and light, the rooms have been styled to feel relaxing and home-from-home, with comfortable beds, luxurious en suite bathrooms and scenic views of the village and surrounding orchards. An overnight stay is completed with breakfast in the morning.
If we are not showing any availability, you could try our gorgeous sister pub The Barrow House in Egerton, which is just a short drive away.

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.
