Family restaurant and adult dining

Fantastic food is at the heart of our hospitality.

Our expert chefs create seasonal menus using the best local ingredients from farm and field.

Covid-19 update: In order to ensure the safety of our guests and staff, we have made some adjustments to our restaurant operations. Please click here for the latest information.

From big breakfasts, leisurely lunches and afternoon tea to family dinners and adult dining, we offer flexible eating options. Tuck into dishes from farm and field, steaks and classic seafood in the Conservatory, while the kids devour a kids antipasto grazing board or our chef's famous pizzas.

Or put the children to bed (if you are staying in the hotel, set-up our video monitor – available at Reception – so you can monitor your little ones, or we can organise a babysitter if you are staying in The Lodge) and enjoy a sophisticated, adults-only dinner in Frederick’s restaurant, overlooking the Italianate gardens.

Breakfast is served in our restaurants at the hotel. If you are staying at The Lodge, we will provide cereals and fresh milk daily to keep you going until you wish to join us for breakfast.

Flexible family dining

We make family mealtimes easy and convenient, with menus geared-up for children: whether they favour mocktails and mini meatballs or curry. You are welcome to have meals delivered to your room and our chef will provide fresh, pureed baby food from 7am to 10pm.

On a Sunday, you’ll find a three-course feast of seasonal options to choose from, including home-grown veg and local meat.

Afternoon tea

Our delicious afternoon tea is served from noon to 4pm daily, with a children’s option available.

Children's high tea and family dining

Children’s ‘High Tea’ is served between 5pm and 6pm. 

Dinner in Frederick’s

With the children safely tucked up in bed, take a table overlooking the Italianate gardens and dine by candlelight in our two rosette fine dining restaurant. Sample cuisine based on seasonal ingredients from local and artisan suppliers, sip vintages recommended by our expert sommelier, and catch up on some well-deserved time as a couple.
