My husband booked a meal in The Orangery for our Wedding Anniversary. We had the set menu and was not disappointed. Food was delicious and staff were friendly and well trained. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

Service was attentive without being intrusive, there were nice touches , with a taster pumpkin soup, nice sorbet in-between the main course and desert. Everything was presented beautifully, the food was very very tasty, my beef wellington was one of the nicest I have... More

We were staying in the hotel for the weekend and decided to try the restaurant. It was a good choice, we decided to have steak and it was first class. We also had a complimentary amuse bouche, I have never had one offered before (never eaten in the right places!) The staff were friendly and very attentive and we felt... More

If you want a quiet romantic evening looking into the dark limpid depths of your loved ones eyes go somewhere else but for an enjoyable stop off for a quality meal or just a drink with friends listening to the buzz of conversations and people out enjoying themselves try the Orangery - not cheap but quality costs money

I come here several times a year and find it worth the journey of over an hour to get here. The food is good. The service of a high standard and the hotel is situated in a stunning location with well kept grounds. There is a lake with ducks and swans and the canal with narrow boats adds to the... More

This was my third visit here for afternoon tea and again I was not disappointed. Our table was ready on time and we were quickly seated and our coats taken and hung up. The waiter brought over the box of tea samples and talked us through all the different blends allowing us time to ask questions and smell the different... More
