The Oakwood Room

The Oakwood Room pairs parquet flooring with pastel panelling and hues plucked straight from the palette of the forest. By day, it's flooded with natural light, and as the sun sets, it becomes a dusky space - perfect for dinners with up to 32 guests. This versatile space is ideal for banquets, luxurious weddings, conferences, and meetings. There's a £150 room hire charge for use of The Oakwood Room.

The Paris Room

Dating back to the original 17th-century building, The Paris Room offers an intimate setting. It might be perfect for board meetings and banquet-style feasts for up to 10 guests, but the open fireplace makes this a cosy space. There's a £95 room hire charge for use of The Paris Room.

The Terrace Restaurant

Our wood-panelled, three AA-Rosette Terrace Restaurant is warm, welcoming, and filled with natural daylight through its ornate windows and French doors. And with plenty of room for up to 100 guests, it's perfect for elegant weddings, conferences and meetings. There's a £500 room hire charge for use of The Terrace subject to the date and time of booking.
