We aren't just passionate about our coffee, we pride ourselves on creating meals made from the best ingredients. Our bread, fruit and veg are locally sourced and our meats and fish are selected from Smithfield and Billingsgate markets. Our food is made fresh on the premises; sourced, prepared and served with care and attention.
We know you don't just want good food and good service, you want to dine in comfort. At The Kitchen you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner in our historic 17th century building. Savour our delicious food in the cosy snug or, in the warmer weather, quench your thirst and relax in our peaceful courtyard garden.
MEET THE TEAM
The discipline of hard work and my passion for food probably
began earlier for me than most: I started working in the family green grocers
at the age of ten. Whilst my schoolmates were playing football, I rented a piece of land on a local farm and raised
pigs, chickens, sheep and turkeys. The natural step from here was to train as a
butcher where my interest in high quality meats and food grew further. I opened my first café and catering business
in 2011. Six years later the opportunity
came to expand and realise my ideas within the community I grew up in. Community plays an important role in what we
do here at The Kitchen; knowing the preferences of our regular customers, providing
an inviting meeting place to have a break, eat lunch and chat or do the
crossword - all under the roof of this historic building.
My aspirations don’t stop with the café. This year I hope to instil some of my enthusiasm for cooking into some equally enthusiastic students. I was very excited to launch the first of many courses in the newly kitted out cookery school this February. What's next? Watch this space....
