Kingdom Café | Australian wine dinner | Charity cook book for tree of hope


Our new woodland kitchen at Kingdom Café has launched. It’s been a little while coming but we’re so happy to finally be in and settled at this magical clubhouse in the woods, surrounded by birds, trees and nature.

The Kingdom Pantry includes freshly baked sourdough, pastries and granola and is served from a central table laden with good things to eat. The Kingdom Breakfast is a plate of homemade baked butter beans with tomato and rosemary, sourdough toast and poached free-range farm eggs. There are additional extras of thick cut Kentish honey pancetta, oyster mushrooms, local sausages, vegan bacon and avocado. Or choose a bowl of hot porridge with a variety of tasty toppings. For lunch there are fresh sandwiches and hot dishes of the day, such as slow-cooked beef, roots and crushed potato or sweet potato, tofu and spinach curry.

If you haven’t been to Kingdom yet, we’re set just off Grove Road, in Penshurst and are open everyday from 9am-4pm. Kingdom is a natural space to unplug, unwind and relax in our woodland café or get active with a yoga class, walk or bike ride or sign up for a personal training course with Nature’s Gym and relax in the outdoor hot tub afterwards.

Charity cook book for tree of hope

It’s one of the most popular dishes on The Beacon’s menu. A dish, one regular diner ushered aside a chef and made him promise it would never come off. Now, the recipe for Executive Head Chef’s Mark Constable’s slow cooked lamb, harissa aubergines, bulgur wheat, apricot and pomegranate is available in a new cook book. Celebrating the incredible food scene of the towns and villages of West Kent, The Cook Book reveals the secrets from some of area’s best loved chefs, kitchens and producers. It’s a perfect Christmas gift with all proceeds from book sales going to the Tree of Hope, a charity in Tonbridge which supports families of seriously ill and disabled children, all over the UK. Copies are £20 and available to buy at The Beacon.
