Village Pub

The Milk House is a former coaching inn in the heart of the village of Sissinghurst. With a lively bar, bustling Dining Room and four bedrooms providing comfortable accommodation. Surrounded by artisan producers in the garden of England we do our best to source locally for our bar and for our menus. In the bar we serve local cask ales, draught beer and cider. We have sparkling wines and white wines from nearby included in our extensive wine list, with plenty of wines by the glass. The bar remains our casual dining area, with bar service only from our grazing menu. We have allergen cards readily available for those with specific dietary requirements, there are always vegetarian, vegan, gluten free & dairy free options. We offer coffees & teas from 9am. Well behaved four legged friends are welcome in our Garden, on our Terrace and in the Bar. Please ensure they are under control at all times and remain on a lead. Please note that dogs are not permitted in our Dining Room or in our accommodation.

As we approach Spring, we think about the marquee on the terrace and The Happy Piggy, The Angry Ox, The Dairy Cow and their pizza friends finishing their Winter hibernation. Our pizzas will start being served on Friday 19 April and the marquee will go up around then too. 

Dining Room

Our large, airy Dining Room lends itself to a relaxed dining experience.  All table service we take pride in our friendly yet professional service and hope that people take the opportunity to enjoy excellent quality produce, prepared & cooked onsite and served directly to your table. We take enormous pride in creating a menu that sources as much as possible from the artisan and local producers on our doorstep and we try to ensure there is something for everyone.  We have allergen cards readily available for those with specific dietary requirements, there are always vegetarian, vegan, gluten free & dairy free options.  Our Dining Room is open every day from midday until 9pm, except Sunday when it closes at 4pm.  Last orders are 15 minutes before closing time. The Dining Room houses tables of varying size, the largest group size is 20 people along one long table.  Our semi private dining room is ideal for groups from 10 – 12 people.  In order to ensure smooth service and menu availability we ask that groups of 10 or more pre order their food at least 24 hours in advance. There is a discretionary 12.5% service charge added to the bills in the Dining Room. Dogs are not permitted in the Dining Room.   


Wood Fired Pizzas

Our wood fired pizzas come straight from our wood fired pizza oven.  This pizza oven is separate to the main kitchen and works on it’s own timetable! The pizza menu is available in the bar, on the terrace and in the garden.  We do not serve pizzas in the Dining Room.  Pizzas are recommended  for casual dining in the garden, on the terrace or in the bar – please note, if you’re combining a pizza order with starters & main courses coming from the main kitchen, we cannot promise they’ll arrive at the preferred time.  

Pizzas are ordered at the bar or the Hopper Hut bar.  When placing your order, you’ll receive a buzzer.  When this buzzer vibrates noisily, your pizza is ready for collection from the Pizza kitchen located by the garden entrance.  Don’t forget to help yourself to cutlery, napkins and sauces from the stations on the terrace and in the bar. 

We have allergen cards readily available for those with specific dietary requirements, there are always vegetarian, vegan & dairy free options.  


We do everything we can to accommodate dietary requirements by creating allergen cards for each seasonal menu.  Please see these below.  As almost everything we have is prepared on site, there are some dishes that can be made gluten/dairy free with the simple removal of one ingredient. Please make sure you discuss your allergens with one of the team when you arrive on site.  Our procedure is to note allergens on the orders, even if the dish does not contain the allergen ingredient.  We have gluten free bread rolls on site and gluten free bases for pizzas (they are cooked in the same wood fired oven as the other pizzas.) 

The Milk House is not an allergy free kitchen.  We cannot guarantee that our products are free from ingredients that may affect those with serious food allergies.  In our kitchen we do have gluten, milk & dairy products, eggs, nuts & seeds.  We take great care to avoid any cross contamination, but it cannot be guaranteed.

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.
