The Orangery restaurant

Our Restaurant

Due to Covid 19 we are currently closed for day to day business in The Orangery until further notice.

Generally though, the restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as bar snacks and sandwiches. 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 run a table d'hote menu that changes daily based on what our suppliers have to offer, and we run our famous Sunday Carvery every Sunday.

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