Another excelleny meal in the Orangrie. Just a lovely evening out from strt to finish it's an experience rather thn simply a meal out. The staff are really attentive, the service excellent, the atmoshpere is relaxed and the food is top class. We will return, hopefully, many times in the future.

Visited Orangery to celebrate my mother's 81st birthday on a Sunday evening. We enjoyed our aperitifs and canapés in the Library before going through to the restaurant. We had the 4 course dinner and selected the fillet steaks for a supplement. The service, presentation and flavours of the food were excellent. The house and grounds all add to the atmosphere to make it a special occasion.

Food and service in Orangey Restaurant is first class and very good value. The only down side was the poor service in the bar before and after the meal, it was very slow and lacked any attention by the many young male staff. I will be back!

Dined here on 11.05.13 to celebrate a birthday. First visit. Lovely building and grounds. Service good and friendly. Wedding and 40th birthday may have distracted kitchen. Rabbit terrine and asparagus starters excellent. Sorbet was lovely. Watercress soup bland and not checked for seasoning. Steak was just "ok". Ditto chips. Ice cream for Pud lovely. Wrong desert wines arrived but were lovely. ditto coffee. With attention to detail it could justify price(£250 for 4).

Went last year on a deal. Service was superb and food also. Since been back for a special occasion and although service was not up to par, management were made aware and so do not feel the need to put those issues on here as they are working on them and to be fair, I will let them. I would still recommend for special occasions or if simply splashing out.
