New state-of-the-art kitchen


04 May 2023

We're delighted to unveil a new state-of-the-art kitchen as we mark 55 years in business at The 3 Acres. We have invested to create an 870 square foot ‘super kitchen’, having worked with Greens Commercial Kitchens to design and install and now have a Josper Basque grill for cooking meat over open charcoal, and a Rotisol professional rotisserie.

Tom Truelove, owner, explains: “The 3 Acres has a rich heritage in delivering the very best dining experience using ingredients of exceptional provenance. As we mark fifty-five years in business, investing in a state-of-the-art kitchen allows us to push forward and develop the culinary experience our guests know us for, even further.

“The investment is also a commitment to our hugely talented team of chefs, some of whom have been with us for over 30 years. It gives them the space and equipment they need to develop and fulfil their talents in the very best and most efficient working environment.”

Tom added: “Developing our team for the future is also very important, and our new kitchen is a space where the next generation of culinary talent can join us to learn from the very best in the industry. This kitchen – which uses mostly British-made equipment and appliances - is specified to the highest standard of modern, technical ability; allowing our chefs to further develop their skills while taking an active role in shaping the future of the culinary offering at The 3 Acres.”

He added: “I’m extremely proud that The 3 Acres has remained in our family since 1968. I think the fact we’ve developed the business over the last 55 years without any outside investment demonstrates our passion and commitment to everything The 3 Acres stands for, has become, and will continue to develop into.

“The new kitchen is the beating heart of the business, and the whole team is very proud of what we’ve achieved with it. The level of investment in this project really does take us to the pinnacle of modern restaurant kitchens, and I’m excited to see how it shapes the future of The 3 Acres as we look forward to the next fifty-five years in business.”

Dravet Syndrome Awareness Month


09 June 2022

June is Dravet Syndrome awareness month - so what better time to make a positive impact! 

Tom and Lauren Truelove, together with a group of 15 other intrepid swimmers, are taking on a huge challenge swimming 2 miles across the icy and choppy Lake Windermere TOMORROW. They are raising money for a small charity called Dravet Syndrome UK, all in the name of their son, Freddie-Bo Truelove. 

Some of you may or may not know little Freddie, but for those who don’t, Freddie is a warrior. A real warrior, who also happens to suffer from Dravet syndrome. He suffered his first prolonged seizure at 5 months old, and has had thousands of seizures since then, continuing to be plagued by them on a daily basis. Having tried and failed almost every treatment option, their hope lies with science 🧬 in the inevitable hope of a cure. This is everything. The only thing. 

All of the funds raised from this event will be going directly and entirely to research projects, looking to find a cure to this dreadful disease. 

Please help them help Freddie and all the other beautiful Dravet syndrome souls by donating anything you can -
