Arthur’s Farm Kitchen has already proved to be a great asset to Fordhall. It is run by the community society (the Fordhall Community Land Initiative) which owns the farm, meaning all profits are reinvested within our educational and community work.
Our team of dedicated and welcoming staff really have brought Fordhall to life. Arthur’s Farm Kitchen serves hot food all week (Tues-Sun), starting with breakfasts, followed by lunches and cold sandwiches or soups late afternoon. All this in addition to home-made cakes, scones, freshly ground organic and fair trade coffee, organic/herbal teas and a great atmosphere.
We can also cater for vegans, gluten free and most other allergies (but please let us know in advance).
Due to space in our delightful sustainably converted barn, it is wise to book Sunday lunches in advance, although this is not a necessity. With meat fresh from the farm and all other main ingredients being sourced locally or organic, a meal at Fordhall will be a delicious food journey to remember. Take a look at our values to get a real sense of how we put our ethics into practice at Fordhall Farm.

We also offer an afternoon tea option (£10-£17), but this must be booked in advance. Or drop in for cream tea 3pm-5pm for only £3.50.
Our café is fully licensed and sell a selection of local ales and organic and Fairtrade wines at reasonable prices (available through the week).
We source all our main ingredients either locally or organically, ensuring we make the most of what’s in season. Our menus may not have hundreds of options, but they are always changing.
Please also note that we are cycling friendly, with space to lock 6 bikes, dogs are welcome on leads (in the café and on our walks but not in the farm shop) and (perhaps most importantly) we are breast feeding friendly too!
Accessibility: We have a disabled toilet onsite and disabled parking. The farm shop and Arthur’s Farm Kitchen are both accessible for wheelchairs and scooters. After passing over a short gravel area, our community garden and free range pigs are accessible for most sturdy wheelchairs and scooters during dry weather.
