Spring treats at The Milk House

Posted on 12 Apr 2017 in Pub | Comments Off on Spring treats at The Milk House

The sun’s out, we’ve just enjoyed the year’s most glorious weekend and there’s a long four days of feasting, family time and chocolatey excess to look forward to. The bluebells are coming up, the lambs are in the field and there’s a feeling in the air that Winter is most definitely behind us.

In Sissinghurst, our new Spring menus are packed with seasonal ingredients and fresh flavours. To get your taste buds tingling – think lamb, spring chicken, baby new potatoes, courgettes, pea shoots and fresh soft herbs.

There’s also lots in the calendar:

1. EASTER SUNDAY / Sunday 16 April
2. PIZZA OVEN OPENING / Easter weekend
3. VESPA RALLY / Saturday 29 April
4. MAY DAY / Monday 1 May
5. QUIZ NIGHT / Sunday 14 May
6. MILK FEST 2017 / August Bank Holiday Weekend

Sunday 16 April

Bring the family together this Easter at The Milk House for a real Spring celebration. On Easter Sunday, we’re serving an ‘all day Easter lunch’ with a special set menu in the Dining Room finished off with delicious chocolatey eggs – what else?!

For smaller tummies, there’s a children’s menu with baby portions of big favourites. If you haven’t made plans for Sunday, there may still be a spot for you in our Dining Room as we’re extending our Easter lunch service until 6pm – but book soon!

Of course, no Easter would be complete without hot cross buns, so we’ll be serving them – smothered in creamy South Downs butter – all weekend.

Easter weekend

We’re getting all fired up about the opening of the pizza oven! It’s time for the Happy Piggy, Plucky Hen, Angry Ox and all their friends to come out of hibernation and be part of our long summer lunches on our terrace. We hope you’ll join them.

There’s no need to book in the bar or on the terrace, so if you want to soak up the sunshine, just come along and enjoy.

Saturday 29 April

Everyone loves an excuse for a party – and with pizza back on the menu, the May Bank Holiday weekend seems the perfect opportunity to celebrate la dolce vita. We’ve invited a cavalcade of Italian scooters to join us for a pizza the action on Saturday 29 April.

Come and admire Kent Vespa Club’s finest pieces of motor while enjoying a pint of Peroni, a glass of Pinot Grigio and some perfect Mediterranean weather (promise).

Monday 1 May

On Monday 1 May, we’ll be reverting to our Kentish roots, thanks to the Weald Kent of Kent Morris men who are leading us into dance at 1pm. Get your handkerchiefs ready so you don’t miss out on the May Day merriment!

Sunday 14 May

Calling all smarty pints and know-it-ales! Our first ever quiz night in March was a great success so we’ve decided to do it all again. Pit your wits against friends and foes at the next Milk House Mastermind pub quiz on Sunday 14 May.

Come along for five challenging rounds and great prizes. Rock up on the night or contact to book a table.

Spring & Summer

*Book a night’s stay at our sister pub – The Barrow House in Egerton – and we’ll treat you to a second night as our guest!*

Last Autumn we opened The Barrow House in Egerton and she’s grown so much in the last six months. If you had a chance to grab the weekend papers a few weeks ago, you might have spotted our baby sister on the back page of the Sunday Telegraph’s travel section. Hotel guru Fiona Duncan visited The Barrow House in February for her weekly feature on the best places to stay in the UK – and we really couldn’t be prouder.

Egerton is such a lovely village and it really is the perfect place for a family day out or weekend break, especially during the warmer months, with Leeds Castle and Godinton House and Gardens just a short drive from the pub, as well as some of the area’s renowned local vineyards and breweries.

If you’re planning a Spring or Summer escape, or just need something to look forward to, book now before the end of May quoting SPRING2017, and we’ll treat you to a second night as our guest.*

The Barrow House’s three beautiful bedrooms all have luxurious en suite bathrooms and enormous beds to ensure the most comfortable overnight stay or relaxing weekend getaway. Each room has a distinct personality, but they share in common space and light with large windows looking onto the village and valley.

*This offer is valid for bookings made until 31 May 2017 for stays until 31 December 2017
