The Orangery

A perfect spot for a relaxed lunch or a light supper

Enjoy the garden views from our light and comfortable Orangery. Served daily – morning coffee, lunches, afternoon tea and evening meals.

Light meals are available from 12.00 noon through to 9.00pm . Afternoon Tea is served from 3pm through to 6pm daily and on Sundays at lunchtime, we serve a more traditional family roast. For a full Sunday lunch please reserve a table in our á la carte restaurant, Verderer’s.

The Orangery is dog and children friendly. We offer a walk-in service so pre-booking is not necessary. Tables are subject to availability on the day.
