Food and drink
Whether you choose family dining or fine dining, fantastic food is at the heart of our hospitality. From rabbit lasagne to sausages and mash, our expert chefs create seasonal menus using the best local ingredients and vegetables picked from the walled garden.
From big breakfasts and leisurely lunches, to family dinners and fine dining, we offer flexible eating options. Tuck into antipasto platters, steaks and classic seafood in the Conservatory, while the kids devour Dingley Dell chipolatas or our popular ‘hidden vegetable’ lasagne. Or, put the children to bed (switch on the baby-listening system or we can organise a baby-sitter) and enjoy a sophisticated, adult-only dinner in our fancy Fredrick’s restaurant, overlooking the Italianate gardens.
Flexible Family Dining
We like to make meal times easy and convenient for families, and our menus are geared-up for children whether they favour mocktails and macaroni cheese or boiled eggs and burgers. Kids’ meals and light snacks are served all day (from noon till 8.30pm), and you are welcome to have meals delivered to your room. Our chef will also provide fresh, pureed baby food from 7am till 10pm.
Children's High Tea and Family Dining
Children’s ‘High Tea’ is served in the Cinema Room between 5pm and 6pm. Crèche staff are on hand so that parents can kickback from the mayhem and enjoy a gin and tonic or a glass of wine.
Dinner at Fredrick’s
With the children safely tucked up in bed, now for grown-up time: take a table overlooking the Italianate gardens and dine by candlelight in Fredrick’s Restaurant. Situated in the one of the family dining rooms, at Fredrick’s we offer sophisticated fine dining. Sample modern European cuisine based on seasonal ingredients from local growers and artisan suppliers, sip vintages recommended by our expert sommelier, and catch up on some well-deserved time as a couple.
Our Chinese Room, with its 18th-century hand-painted wallpaper, is ideal for private dining parties of up to 8 people. Challenge your guests to spot the red dragonfly and receive a bottle of Champagne.
