It all started when…

Paul and Julie Martin have lived, worked and raised their four (now grown-up) children at the former dairy in the picturesque village of Boughton-Under–Blean since 1987.

Formerly Martin’s Restaurant, in 2014 they decided it was time for a huge change. A customer informed them of the building’s heritage (in the 1930s it was a working dairy - genuine pictures above of South View Dairy).

And the rest is history.

The team actioned the mother of all makeovers, and refurbed complete with bespoke milk bottle lights, vintage milk churn bar stools, and historic prints from working dairies across the UK throughout the years.

Today, the venue is a TripAdvisor Hall Of Fame recipient for its consistent outstanding 5* reviews.

A venue steeped in local history, a team of staff commended for their hospitality, and a menu rich in local produce, fresh and inventive homemade dishes. There is no better recipe for the perfect lunch or dinner.
