Upcoming changes

Since taking over The Black Ant last year, various challenges have meant that we’ve been limited in providing our intended offering. Moving forward, we want to make The Black Ant the best it can be; a welcoming venue for everyone to stop and enjoy a delicious meal, sweet treat, or coffee in the beautiful setting of Kin Kin. As part of this plan to continue to improve our guest experience, there will be a new outdoor seating area, a wood fired pizza oven restaurant, a full service bakery with breads and pastries, plus our existing morning breakfast menu, a new deli style lunch offering, and gelato ice creams - all hand made on site. 

To allow these improvements to take place as we move into summer, we will be making some immediate changes to our menu. There’ll be a simple, flavoursome deli style menu with plenty of fresh salads, sandwiches and daily specials from the kitchen. Coffee, cakes and Kirsty’s delicious pastry menu will be expanded as our new bakery equipment arrives. 

Soon, a state of the art wood fired pizza oven and a new bottle shop will be installed in the outdoor dining space. In this family friendly venue, you can enjoy a delicious freshly made pizza with a cold beer or a glass of wine. If you prefer to enjoy your pizza and six pack from the comfort of your couch, take away will be available. 

Inside, a brand new bakery space has been designed. A large selection of delicious cakes, pastries, breads and more will be available every day to enjoy alongside your coffee. You’ll even be able to watch Kirsty making croissants and Richard baking sourdough when you visit. 

A new outside seating area is planned, to expand on the current space and make the most of the sites and sounds of our special little village. 

Our aim is to stay open throughout the renovations, so there will be limited disruption. 

We’re really looking forward to getting stuck into the renovations, and we hope you’ll support us during this transitional period and beyond.
