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

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

We visted on December 21st as a large party of 16. Although very busy we were seated quickly, we had pre-orded our food, which helped. The staff were very attentive and the food was beautifully presented and delicous. I had visited many years before and it was nice to see that the food and atmosphere was still as good, if... More

Dined here whilst staying at the hotel and was very impressed with the service and quality of food. The room itself is pleasantly decorated with well spaced tables and views across the canal & pond.. There is a good alc menu plus an early bird menu which is excellent value for money. Service was friendly but professional - in particular... More

A lovely environment and a great place for a that special meal or simply a good place for a quality meal for lunch or dinner. There is a set menu as well as an an ala cart menu with an option for a gourmet tasting menu. The food is consistently of a good quality even if the description is somewhat... More
