The Orangery Chef’s Table Room

For an experience to remember, this is a totally unique private tasting room for 4-6 covers only, located directly looking into our main kitchen. Diners will be able to watch (and listen if they wish!) the kitchen brigade via a 3 metre stretch of one-way glass.

The Garden Room

Overlooking the gardens, this lovely room seats up to 16 for lunch or dinner – ideal for smaller occasions which require a private room.

The West Room

Again overlooking the garden lawns, The West Room seats up to 24 on one table or up to 46 on 4 round tables.

The Ballroom

The Ballroom was built as our purpose-built largest event room in 1999. It has been designed in keeping with the old house and with Georgian arched windows around the room, the room is flooded with natural daylight. This area can seat up to 216 for lunch or dinner and up to 156 guests if space for a dancefloor/band is also required. Also with its own private and secluded gardens, perfect for summer entertaining.

The Orangery

This is our main restaurant which can also be reserved for private events, accommodating up to 70 for private and corporate gatherings.  The Orangery is a fabulous room to host an event, with floor to ceiling lunette windows, a glass roof ceiling and is sumptuously decorated in shades of silver, copper and chocolate.
