In the light of the PM statement just now we are now closed for the foreseeable future. If you have booked with us we will be in touch. If you have pottery to collect we will be in touch to arrange collection. There's a lot to do just now, so we would appreciate it if you did not contact us right now and leave us to work through everything. We need to communicate with our staff and make sure they are safe and understand what is happening and how we can continue to support them. Thank you for your patience. We will do all that we can to fight for our business and the jobs of our staff and we will be back. Keep a lookout for our posts, we will be working away behind the scenes.To all our customers over the many years thank you for all your support without you we have no business.

Halloween Afternoon Tea

Posted on 10th October 2017

A Great British Tradition Now Available

Afternoon Tea at The Kitchen is quite something.

Enjoy two fresh scones with lashings of Dorset’s finest jam and clotted cream, accompanied by a mouth-watering selection of finger sandwiches, homemade cakes and Dorset tea, served in our stylish glass-fronted restaurant with panoramic views of Swan Lake and the idyllic surrounds of Poole Park.

Ideal for special occasions, long lazy afternoons or simply as a sweet treat, afternoon tea can be enjoyed with table service in The Kitchen’s relaxed waterside restaurant or, if the weather permits, dine al fresco on the heated terrace or decked area.

Fancy a touch of indulgence? Add some fizz with a glass-sized mini bottle of Prosecco or explore the range of speciality teas from Dorset Tea and custom blended organic coffee from local roaster Beanpress.

Afternoon Tea is available Monday – Saturday and served between 4 and 5pm, priced £15 per person. Tables of four or more must be booked in advance.
