The Front Veranda or Grand Hallway is ideal for pre-dinner drinks.

The Conservatory – it’s all about glass and gardens, and the exposed bluestone walls giving a perfect rustic backdrop to the beautiful Victorian styled glass house which extends into the rose gardens. At night it sparkles under the fairy-light filled glass ceiling – perfect country elegance in the city! Coupled with The Coach House and Stables Bar, this self-contained space is incredibly adaptable for themed and socials events.
