Here is a visual taste of what’s on offer…

  •   I had lunch here recently and was pleasantly surprised to find such a place in Marlborough. The entire setting of the lush and beautifully landscaped grounds and the historical building creates a feeling of escape, like you have gone to another country. It was a special day for us so we were a bit indulgent. Everything from the expertly crafted Old Fashioned cocktail to the saffron risotto to the rack of lamb was on point. I honestly haven't experienced such a high quality meal since leaving Dubai and it was a reminder for me how much I love eating amazing food. The highlight for me was the main which was a fish (sorry cant remember which kind) in a rosemary sauce. Stunning. We finished off our indulgence with a glass of champagne and desert (Chocolate Tart) as we just enjoyed the escape in this beautiful building and grounds. Highly recommend.
