The Stables Restaurant is located in a beautiful and historic building. Adjacent to the main house and overlooking the park, the restaurant benefits from structural features and hanging decoration that connects the space to its 300-year history. It’s the ideal place to relax in winter - whether for a seasonal hot drink or a three-course Christmas meal. Check back in autumn for information about our 2024 Christmas plans.
