‘The Menu’ at Pontlands Park offers something for everyone, whether you are staying at the hotel, just want to drop in for a coffee or to enjoy lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.

The Restaurant and Lounge are decorated in a relaxed contemporary style that fits well within the traditional building. Comfortable chairs, plenty of natural daylight, free WI-FI and our friendly staff make it the perfect place for a get together with friends and family or to escape the office and get some work done, whilst enjoying a coffee.

The Menu offers a selection of freshly prepared, homemade seasonal dishes and where possible local ingredients are used.

The little ones haven’t been forgotten, as we have a kid’s menu available for those aged 2-10 years.

Our very popular afternoon tea is available 7 days a week. We take great pride in this tradition; all of the cakes and sweet treats are made inhouse and the scones are served with the world-famous Tiptree jam.

On a Sunday, it’s a family friendly occasion for all to enjoy when we serve a traditional Sunday lunch menu.

As well as a great menu, we also offer a carefully chosen wine list, which includes many varieties available by the glass.

Reservations are recommended, especially at the weekends, although not essential.
