The Ballroom restaurant is open for pre-booked lunch or dinner service, take a look at the menu here. In the new bar in the Orangery, Members Bar, Lounge and Terrace enjoy sandwiches, tapas and drinks. You can also purchase take-aways to eat as picnic on the lawn, or to take away and enjoy at home.

What measures are in place to ensure the safety of Members and staff when dining?

In order to ensure the safety of all Members and staff at the Club, we have put measures in place across the estate. There is hand sanitiser in every room, tables are thoroughly cleaned before and after use, menus are single use and are disposed of and recycled after use. To avoid unnecessary queuing food and drinks can be ordered from your table in the new bar in the Orangery, Members Bar, Lounge and Terrace using our Mobile Ordering System. Staff wear masks when serving food and drinks. We are operating a non-contact service keeping Members and staff safe and complying with social distancing requirements.

Our Mobile Ordering service allows you to order food and drinks to your table in the lounge, Members Bar, new bar in the Orangery and on the terrace. View full FAQs on the new Mobile Ordering service here.
