Enjoy tea and cake or a light lunch in our beautiful Audit Room Restaurant.

This lofty space was originally built as a sculpture gallery, but was more recently used for entertaining the Leconfield Estate tenants. Now decorated with some of the magnificent antlers from the fallow deer herd in the Park, it is the perfect location in which to enjoy a leisurely lunch or afternoon tea.
Head Cook, Elaine Scammell specialises in sourcing seasonal local ingredients, which are used to create the predominantly traditional British dishes on the menu.
