The Orangery at Blenheim Palace is a brasserie-style restaurant in an historic location. Enjoy flavoursome lunches and quintessential afternoon teas, amidst elegant décor and stunning views across the grounds.

At lunch, The Orangery menu offers a range of rich British and European dishes. Start with the likes of a beautiful smoked Bibury Farm trout terrine, potted “Old Spot” ham hock and pork, Blenheim ploughman’s pickle and onion bread or a great soup of the day. Hearty mains include Cutlet of Alden’s lamb, glazed lamb breast or butter-oached organic salmon. Then indulge in a delicious dessert such as warm rice pudding, served with Blenheim-grown rhubarb or a beautiful chocolate pave.

Afternoon tea at The Orangery in Oxfordshire is an elegant affair befitting of its location. Savour traditional sandwiches, handmade cakes and a wide range of loose leaf teas, with a choice of champagnes on hand for extra indulgence.

Exuding timeless sophistication, The Orangery restaurant at Blenheim Palace sits just outside of Woodstock, a 9-minute drive from Hanborough Rail Station.

    Cant praise this restaurant enough. Outside it says 'great British food' which of course could be off putting. But here, the food is excellent and value for money. All the staff are also very good indeed. We're going back!

    When we first sat down we were asked if we wanted water, we replied yes please, a few minutes a lady came with a tray of glasses containing water. However we never received the bottled water which was part of the deal for the Afternoon tea.
