Outside is just as restful. Dine al-fresco for your wedding breakfast in our Gertrude Jekyll-inspired gardens, listen to the pond fountain designed by Giuseppe Lund, play a game of croquet on the upper terrace, sip Champagne under the magnolia tree or join the chef in our kitchen garden. The Terrace Restaurant offers an unparalleled dining experience for your wedding day. Expect modern-British dishes fused with delicate touches of innovation and an exciting range of flavours, textures and aromas; food you will be talking about for years to come.

In the event of cancellation by the client, the hotel will undertake to mitigate its losses and to re-let the function room(s) with similar catering arrangements. The client will be responsible for the loss incurred by the hotel in the event that the function rooms remain unoccupied, or are occupied at a lower income level for the hotel, on the date booked. The cancellation charges imposed by the hotel will therefore reflect the actual loss. Any postponement of confirmed and contracted business will be treated as a cancellation.
