Delicious food- The Kent breakfast (http://www NULL.visitkentbusiness NULL.co NULL.uk/index/training-support/kent-breakfast/) way
With so much delicious food grown and produced right on our door step we figure we should make the best of it. Not only does it help us to reduce our food miles but it also helps to support local growers and producers- which we feel is really important. When you order breakfast you can know with confidence where the food on your plate comes from. We have fresh free range eggs brought from Iffin Meadows egg farm- which is right next door. Fresh Bacon and sausages from our local Wicheap Butchers. Mushroom, tomatoes and bread from the local farmshop. All our freshly ground coffee comes from the Wigham coffee company and our tea’s come from the Kent and Sussex tea and coffee company. As well as hot beverages we also serve Moor organic (http://www NULL.moororganicjuice NULL.co NULL.uk/buy_online/moor_organic_juice NULL.html) Apple juice which is produced from apples that are organically produced right here in kent.
Breakfast is served in the dining room round a large table- we think its lovely for guests to interact but in the summer breakfast can also be served out on the lawn. In the evening you could stroll around the grounds if the weather is nice or snuggle up in your bed and play board games or cards.
Breakfast is usually served between 7am and 9.30am. If an earlier start is required this is not a problem however we do charge an extra £10
Canterbury and the surrounding villages have excellent restaurants and great pubs serving good food but if you prefer a two-course evening meal, including coffee ‘at home’ this is available on request when booking at £19.70 per adult and £10.00 for a child’s portion. Vegetarians and special diets, including gluten free, are also catered for.
For other eating houses in and around take a look at our Local area and What’s on page.
Iffin Farmhouse will inspire artists, writers and musicians and anyone needing space to reflect. It is an excellent base to explore the surrounding countryside and nearby coast, yet close to the city of Canterbury.
