The Orangery restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week, and we also have bar snacks and sandwiches.

All our food is freshly prepared on site.

Perfect for a small couple or family dinner, evening meals or Sunday lunches, a celebration, a group venue or anything in between. We run a table d'hote menu that changes daily based on what our suppliers have to offer, and on the sunday we add the traditional roast dinner to this menu.
