  • Enjoy breakfast, light lunches and mouth-watering delicacies… and treat yourself to our sumptuous Afternoon Tea. The quarter of Lounges and Library are in the historic heart of The Grove, where the Earls of Clarendon threw endless lavish house parties for the likes of Queen Victoria and Horace Walpole.

    Today the atmosphere's still downright playful. Come and hide away and discuss business… play scrabble… digest the daily papers… sip an apéritif… they're a wonderful place to waste time.

    Bookings can be made for a maximum of 8 adults per table. Dining reservations can be made from the first day of each month for the current month and the following two months e.g. a reservation for August can be made from 1 June.
