Each venue offers a selection of dishes and refreshments, cooked fresh every day using locally sourced ingredients where possible.
Meadow Brown Restaurants launched in March 2013 with their first venue, Ferry Meadows Café in Peterborough.
Raj says “It was the scariest yet most exciting time of my career winning Ferry Meadows Café. After a year we managed to add, Lakeside Kitchen and Bar to our profile. Nene Park has a special place in my heart as this is where it all started for me.”
“We want to create perfect destinations for people to come and take in the amazing views and surroundings of each venue, whilst enjoying the lovely service and great food. We source all of our food and drinks from local suppliers where possible, so nearly every penny spent with us stays in the local community.”
Earlier in 2020 we also added Delamere Forest Café to our portfolio. This popular venue is set in the heart of Delamere Forest, a shady oasis in the midst of the agricultural landscape of the Cheshire Plain. Delamere, southwest of Manchester, is a place to let off steam, escape the crowds and find peace in the heart of the forest.
In 2021, Nottingham Castle was added to our portfolio and is steeped in history, most famous for its compelling tales of Robin Hood and admired for its beauty. The Terrace Café is in the Ducal Palace itself and offers stunning views overlooking the city. The Castle has had a £30 million redevelopment and is a must-see heritage site. The brand-new Visitors Centre is home to the Visitors Centre Café, a more informal space for lighter bites and of course coffee and cake! The newly developed play area aptly named ‘Hoods Hideout’ is a vast wooden ‘mini version’ of the castle and is sure to be a hit with families.
Lincoln Cathedral is our latest addition. It is considered to be one of the finest surviving medieval Cathedrals in Northern Europe. For 283 years the Cathedral stood as the tallest building on Earth, until its central spire fell in 1548. The newly developed Visitor Centre is home to Lincoln Cathedral Café, a fantastic setting to grab a bite to eat. The attractive gardens and sheltered courtyard add to the ambience, it truly is a beautiful location.
