Arthur’s Farm Kitchen

With meat fresh from Fordhall Farm, combined organic vegetables and the best locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, a meal at Arthur’s Farm Kitchen is a delicious food journey to remember.

Unfortunately, our café is currently closed due to the coronavirus lockdown. Whilst we can not serve our food indoors, we are endeavouring to retain our staff where possible. We are currently offering take home Sunday Lunches cooked by our new Head Chef Richard. A new seasonal menu is offered each week for pre orders. Meals are collected from us each Saturday between 1pm and 3pm (or delivered free to those isolating in the TF9 postcode). The meals are all ready for you to heat at home and come with full re-heating instructions. We hope they are a take home treat for your Sundays, whilst dining out is restricted.

Open from Tuesday to Sunday, we start the day with our hearty breakfast menu, followed by delicious lunches and sandwiches or soups into the late afternoon. Or you could treat yourself to a slice of one of our homemade cakes or scones, with a freshly ground organic and Fairtrade coffee or organic herbal tea. Our café is fully licensed, so you can enjoy one of our local ales or organic and Fairtrade wine while you relax.

As well as great food, at Arthur’s we serve up a friendly, relaxed atmosphere in our delightful, sustainably converted barn.

Supporting our community

Arthur’s Farm Kitchen is run by the Fordhall Community Land Initiative, a charitable society set up to benefit the community. All profits from the cafe are re-invested within our educational and community work.

Our values

We are passionate about organic farming, and great-tasting seasonal locally-sourced food. All our meat comes fresh from Fordhall Farm and our vegetables and salads are sourced from an organic local producer. Learn about how we put our ethics into practice by checking out Our Values.


During your visit to Arthur’s Farm Kitchen, make sure you have a look around the farm too. Take a walk along our Farm Trails, visit our free-range pigs, wonder around our community garden and let little ones loose in our play area.


We have a disabled toilet and disabled parking. The Farm Shop and Arthur’s Farm Kitchen are 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.


You are welcome to bring your four-legged friend to the cafe and on the Farm Trails providing they are kept on a lead. Dogs (except assistance dogs) are not allowed in the Farm Shop.

Community focus

We are proud to support various community initiatives such as The Chatty Café Scheme and hold Dementia friendly status. We have a ‘Chatter and Natter’ table, where people can sit if they’re happy to talk to other customers. The Chatty Café scheme was started to help bring people together and start up conversations.
