Alfresco is used to refer to a style of outdoor eating and drinking favored in warmer climates and indeed many would argue that food and drink tastes better when enjoyed in the fresh air. We have created our three landscaped terraced areas to make the most of our stunning riverside location – sheltered inside the historical walled gardens you could be forgiven for thinking that you are a million miles from a busy town centre. Although our terraces are open year round for the use of our guests it is during the summer that they come into their own and we are able to offer outside dining and table service (as you can appreciate this is very weather dependent) – tables are strictly on a first come first served basis and cannot be reserved. As dawn approaches outdoor lighting transforms the gardens and patio heaters and blankets are made available to our guests until closing time. Our front terrace can also be roped off for exclusive use for guests who have booked larger functions in our lower areas.
