Christmas Party bookings are in full swing, and our menu will be released this week!

We've booked in a complete redevelopment of our lift, taking place in October, which means that it is currently out of service while we wait for the new circuit boards and parts. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The Orangery restaurant

Our Restaurant

The Orangery offers breakfast every morning between 8am and 10am, and lunch (12pm-3pm) and dinner (6pm-9pm) 6 days a week (closed Thursdays). We believe in using fresh, locally sourced produce from our local suppliers. All our food is freshly prepared on site by our talented chefs. 

Perfect for a small couple or family dinner, a celebration, a group venue or anything in between. We have developed our menu to include some of our favourite dishes, and offer a great range of children's food. Food can also be served in the bar lounge, or outside by our play area. Open all day Friday, so the kids can play in the play area after school and you can order food and drinks while you watch them.

Not only do we serve excellent food with our restaurant menu, we're also a perfect venue for weddings, parties, functions and events.
