For groups of over 50 and up to 130 the Conservatory is the ideal space with its own dance floor, and glass doors that open up onto the terrace overlooking the garden. For groups of up to 50 the Orangery is available: a light spacious room overlooking the terrace which is home to Janet’s beautiful handblown glass collection and a baby grand white Yamaha piano. The Cavalier Lounge provides a wonderful alternative with a big open fire and comfy furniture for relaxing in after dinner, and is suitable for up to 30 guests. If you are looking for something a little bit different then there is always the Al fresco dining experience.

Menus are designed to suit your own personal taste and preferences. Janet and the team will help you create a well-balanced menu, offer advice on accompanying wines and will even design your bespoke printed menus. Nothing is overlooked; you are assured that your dining experience is a truly memorable experience that you will want to repeat again and again.
