    we’ve got it covered.Curry Wednesday
    Variety is definitely the spice of life here at the Gardener’s Kitchen as every Wednesday we have a perfectly spiced curry on offer with all the extras.

    There’s nothing more comforting than a proper pie and every Thursday we serve this pastry classic with an ever changing range of sumptuous fillings.
    Our eyes are firmly on the pies!

    Fish and Chip Friday
    Most people say TGIF where as our team like to shout “Thank God It’s Fish Friday” from the rooftops! Our chips are rustic and hand cut, our fish is fried in a local Cheshire beer batter and it’s served with our homemade lemony pickle.

    Next time you visit Arley Hall & Gardens, be sure to visit us too!

    The Gardener’s Kitchen is open from 10am – 5pm. Please note our hearty brunch is only served at the weekend from 10.00am – 11.30am.
