For 2019 we are expanding our food offering through the development of The Orangery Restaurant. This commenced in 2017/18 when we replaced the existing single glazed Edwardian conservatory. Working within the limits of the listed status of the house, our aim was to have a structure that complemented the period feel of the house. We believe that the new double glazed conservatory does that perfectly, but more importantly provides a year round facility for our guests.
The new conservatory links with our main dining room to create The Orangery Restaurant. The main dining room is already one of the most impressive rooms in the house with its beautiful Commonwealth ceiling containing all the emblems of the countries of the British Isles, though for 2019 we will be undertaking some redecoration and refurnishing. The conservatory and dining room together allow us to cater for up to 30 covers.
We initially opened The Orangery in 2018 providing traditional afternoon teas and light lunches. With the investment in a new kitchen in 2019 we are able to open up for a full fine dining evening service. With both the main dining room and the conservatory we have the flexibility to cater for resident guest and locals.
We can also offer the conservatory for private parties up to 12 diners. Under the experienced leadership of Chris Brant our chef our aim is simply for The Orangery to become Stirling’s premier fine dining venue. To get an idea of what is on offer please see our food pages.
