Macknade – Elwick Place

From our foodie favourites Macknade comes this independent grocer, delicatessen and dining destination in the centre of Ashford…

Weekend Escapes

Anyone in the know will have already heard of  Macknade’s Flagship Food Hall, which has been trading now for over 40 years in the market town of Faversham. Well foodies rejoice!  Macknade have opened a second venue in the centre of Ashford. The latest venture, Macknade Elwick Place,  offers an all-day dining experience that takes guests from breakfast and brunch; through to supper and cocktails in the evening. We’re sold! 

The menus reflect s Macknade’s Kentish and Mediterranean roots, using quality ingredients, simply cooked to bring out their natural flavour.  This includes a selection of salads, sandwiches and cheese & charcuterie platters, as well as meat dishes sourced and prepared by  Macknade’s award-winning butchers.  Brunch is served until 3pm and dishes from The Plancha (or grill) are served from midday onwards. 

Whilst  Macknade  Elwick  Place  will mainly focus on eating in, shoppers will not be disappointed by the choice of products to buy and take away. The shelves are filled with all your larder essentials and the specialist ingredients you need to make delicious dishes at home. With an exceptional  selection of groceries produced right here on our Kentish doorstep (and others from a little further afield) because they know you love to support local. 

Stock up on  fruit & veg or fresh meat  from their butchers…Or while away the hours exploring the delicatessen, which is home to a  fantastic selection of local and international  cheese & charcuterie – perfect for a delicious picnic platter. 

Whether you’re catching up with friends for coffee or bringing the kids in for breakfast, their menus have something for everyone. Birthday brunch? They’ve got you covered! Try one of their famous deli platters with a bottle of local fizz… 

Macknade Elwick Place matches our growing desire to shop and eat locally. Today more than ever, people are looking to support businesses with sustainability and provenance at their core. 

With a mixture of indoor and outdoor seating, they’ve created a safe, friendly and informal space for everyone to enjoy. Tables are well spaced and additional cleaning measures are in place to ensure the most hygienic environment possible.  For full details, please visit Macknade’s Covid Secure page here.
