Orangery Restaurant

We are delighted to work in partnership with Absolute Taste to provide our catering at the Orangery Restaurant and Garden Cafe.

A bright and relaxing restaurant, the Orangery Restaurant has a full range of menu options using locally sourced fresh ingredients. Designed by ‘Capability’ Brown to provide space for the family’s love of horticulture in the eighteenth century, the huge windows provide natural light for lunches and social events, while the Orangery Restaurant becomes a more intimate and elegant space in the evening.
