Enjoy a delicious roast lunch

Spoil yourself with a delicious roast lunch in the cosy dining room of our 16th century Elizabethan Mansion. 

Make the most of our beautiful wild botanic garden. Take a stroll through our woodlands and nature reserve, before sitting down to enjoy either a two or three-course meal. 

The Mansion sits at the head of manicured lawns which lead out into the wider landscape. The Mansion Pond, with its border of spring flowers and resident wildlife, is just a short stroll away.

Choose from our specially-created menu which takes inspiration from the plants grown in the surrounding gardens.
