    Sunday Lunch menu - good choices, cooked very well and tasted perfect. Gluten-free no problem at all - thank you. Good wine - Sicilian Pinot Grigio.
    Room a bit cool, asked if table could be moved as up against a wall with no view out - moved no problem. Waiter - excellent - really excellent and all staff good. Not sure about the music in background as parents deaf and this caused some problems (it wasn't loud).
    Toilet roll holder in ladies loo - corroded and old - suggest recycling and replacing

    An impressively grand location. Good service. I ordered plaice fillet which were cooked in batter which I found disappointing.

    It was delightful to lunch in this beautiful venue - a mirrored room with chandelier lighting overlooking the exquisite garden. Food delicious, especially tempting desserts. All staff were attentive and helpful.

    Lovely ambiance, really elegant. The cream tea was superb , sandwiches were so fresh, scones were perfect and cakes, irresistible. Our kids enjoyed it as well.

    I brought 5 of my Swedish visitors to the Orangery on Friday 1st September for Afternoon Tea. We had the most wonderful time thanks to the Assistant Restaurant Manager there Luis who made it a very special experience. He went the extra 2 miles with his helpfulness, humour, friendliness and fantastic Service - we LOVED it! The sandwiches were fresh and lovely, and cakes - well.... amazing, so a BIG THANK YOU from me and the Swedish Ladies to everyone else too.
