My love for catering began over 30 years ago when at 14 I started working weekends at a Country Pub / Wedding Venue, The Mill at Worston in Staffordshire. What started out as pot washing soon became my chosen path of cooking.

After working in pubs and restaurant kitchens I finally took the plunge and started my own mobile catering business. This took me far and wide and gave me the opportunities to cater for large corporate companies, VIP’s along with Lords & Ladies…plus a few pop stars!

Over the years I’ve been fortunate to have had great opportunities to have run various catering franchises and after moving to the marsh in 2018; I was ready to take on another premises and in 2019 Kerry’s Kitchen Lydd was founded at 3 Park Street, Lydd.

Since opening in 2019 we have managed to give thousands back into the Lydd Community through sponsorship and donations to local projects, this is something my team & I are very proud of.

Kerry’s Kitchen is a café open to the whole community seven days a week. It serves a wide range of cooked to order breakfast, snacks and drinks as well as lunches and meals from our daily specials board, using local produce and supporting local suppliers. Vegetarian and gluten-free options available.

Afternoon teas are available seven days a week but are pre-bookings only (24 hours’ notice required please) 

There is indoor seating for 24 and further seating for 12 to16 on the outdoor terrace.... great for Spring and Summer.

Telephone orders always welcome (01797 321052) almost everything on the menu is available to Take Away!

We also host a series of pop-up nights where you can bring your own alcohol with £2 per person going to local charities.

Alternatively, you can hire the cafe for parties and private functions or why not use our outside catering services for buffets and more.


We look forward to welcoming you.

Kerry & the team xx
