Decorated with artefacts and archive material from throughout the hotel's history, it's ideally suited to wine and spirit tastings, intimate dinners,cocktail parties and canapé receptions.
Whether you want to hold a formal multi-course, silver service dinner or a more informal affair with quirky dishes such as traditional British fish suppers with a twist, our chefs can design a menu which is sure to delight. At the Sommelier's Table, our wine expert will introduce you to some of the cellar's hidden gems and choose a vintage to perfectly match your meal.Tours are also available for guests, just let us know when you would like to come down!
