Eat And Drink

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 while enjoying a coffee.

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

The little ones haven’t been forgotten, as we have  with a kid’s menu offering more than the usual nuggets and chips.

Our very popular afternoon tea is available 7 days a week, all of the cakes and sweet treats are made in house and the scones are served with the world-famous Tiptree jam and on a Sunday we are no longer offering our usual carvery due to government restrictions, but you will still recognise some of our delicious dishes on our new Sunday Lunch Menu. We hope to be able to return to Sunday Carvery in the not too distant future.

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

Reservations are to be pre-booked, however if you haven’t reserved a table; we will do our upmost to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee this.
