Private dining

Come dine with us

The hotel’s private dining area, seating up to 50 guests, is ideal for private dinners. For larger dinners, the Priory Suite can cater for up to 96 guests.

In addition to the restaurant’s a la carte menu, Chef Alex Aitken has created additional menu options exclusive to private diners. You may create your own bespoke set tasting menu, or opt for one of the fixed-priced, set menus, a 5-course tasting menu with optional wine pairings, or go for his ever-popular ‘Bring me Food’ menu, with dishes delivered platter-style to the centre of the table for communal feasting.

If you still can’t find the menu you want - ask Alex to create you one!
