Numbers up to 62 guests can be catered for in our Conservatory Restaurant and can be offered to weddings from midday through to late afternoon.

Our aim is to provide you with a fine dining experience, by offering a selection of dishes that are based on modern cooking, but with a classical influence. The following samples of our wedding menus and drinks packages are just a guide, all menus and packages can be changed to give you a bespoke wedding day.
