Places to Eat in Ferry Meadows – Lakeside Kitchen & Bar

Whenever you’re enjoying the delights of Nene Park, Lakeside Kitchen & Bar, Ferry Meadows will be there to provide you with delicious food throughout the day. Set in the heart of the country park, Lakeside Kitchen & Bar is open from 8am until 5pm. The restaurant overlooks the picturesque Gunwade Lake, making it one of the prettiest places to eat in Ferry Meadows.

Breakfast is available until 12pm and consists of everything you might expect from a morning menu. Our fantastic full English is replete with bacon, sausage, egg, beans and more. There is a veggie alternative too, which comes with spinach and Halloumi cheese.

For lunch and dinner we have a selection of hearty meals like our succulent Lakeside burger and artisan pizzas. We also have lighter options such as sandwiches, salads and a seasonal soup of the day. Meanwhile, our puddings should satisfy even the sweetest of sweet tooths, with our home made cake an extremely popular choice – and for very good reason! We’ve got plenty of refreshments available too. Our hot drinks include coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. We also serve cold drinks and alcoholic beverages.

At Lakeside we are passionate about supporting the community around us, while simultaneously keeping our carbon footprint low. For that reason, all of our food and drink is sourced as locally as possible. We use Grasmere meat, and bread from Hambleton Bakery. We use a number of locally based suppliers including Peterborough Dairy, Cambridgeshire Water and Watergull Apple Juice. All of our cakes are homemade and our food is cooked fresh to order by Head Chef Paul and his team in the kitchen using only the best quality ingredients.
