Seasonal home cooking
Dine in the company of kings! Under the gaze of royal portraits and Kiplins ancestors feast in our atmospheric Tea Room using the quaint mismatched china so adored by Bridget Talbot, Kiplin’s last family owner. Visitors can enjoy flavourful salads, filling sandwiches, warming soups, and freshly baked scones and cakes straight from the Kiplin kitchen. Our food is made to order and specials change daily so always check the board for seasonal treats. In the summer months our crisp salad bowls and smooth ice cream are a popular choice. While the soups and scones offer a warming treat on wintery days. Produce from the walled garden is used in the kitchen whenever possible. It’s more a case of ‘food yards’ than ‘food miles’ here!
Although restrictions on indoor dining have lifted we have decided to decrease the number of tables in the tea toom to aid social distancing. Hand sanitiser stations remain in place, and the doors will be open for ventilation. Staff will provide table service wearing face coverings, we ask visitors to also wear face coverings until seated at their table (if they are able to).
Updated 21.09.21 – Limited menu on weekdays 27th Sept – 13th Oct- due to staff shortages. Enjoy cakes and scones, hot and cold drinks. Sandwiches will be back on the menu at weekends. With the full menu back in time for October Half Term and Crowes Wood Halloween Trail. Sorry for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your ongoing support and patience.
Outdoor dining – Kiplin boasts stunning views from picnic tables on the lawns around the hall and more secluded picnic spots can be discovered across the parkland. Simply order your food and drinks to ‘take away’ and they will be served in compostable cups or packaging, ready for your picnic.
