Maidstone’s newest dining hot spot Love Food @ Lockmeadow opened its doors in 2021 selling global inspired street food from local independent businesses.

Love Food @ Lockmeadow features communal dining within a collection of eight independent food and drink producers including Thai, Caribbean, Pan-Asian, Vegan, American and Middle-Eastern.  It also features a coffee shop with baked goods and a fully stocked bar of Kent’s finest booze!

The food hall is made up of eight units with four food outlets on either side of the centre’s front entrance with a communal seating area.

Officially opening the food hall, the Mayor of Maidstone, Cllr Fay Gooch said: “I am absolutely delighted to open this amazing food hall – Love Food @ Lockmeadow. It really is what the town needs right now; a dining experience that reflects world flavours with fantastic choice. Customers coming here can expect good quality food from local businesses providing some wonderful flavours.  All eight of the outlets are offering some interesting menu choices at an affordable price and quick too!”

The new food hall is situated in the ideal location for visitors of the cinema and families heading to and from Gravity or Hollywood Bowl.

Love Food @ Lockmeadow will be open from 9am – 11pm*, with core hours of 12pm – 9pm – 7-days a week. *Some units may open later than 9am due to the variety of food they provide.
