Design and Décor

Upton’s Pavilion Restaurant was purpose built in 2002, reflecting the architecture of the house. The star lantern lights are similar to the original one that used to hang in Lady Bearsted’s Art Deco bathroom.

The fretwork and colour scheme echo the designs in the Long Gallery and through the house, made during the renovation in 1927.  Posters and photos on the walls reflect the history of the house and gardens.
