The go-to guide for you and your child

The Orangery

We specialise in seasonal modern British fare, locally sourced Himalayan salt aged rare breed steak, fresh coastal fish and we have tweaked some traditional modern dishes using the very best seasonal produce available to us.

The 30-seater Damson cocktail lounge opens all week and has an impressive drinks menu featuring handcrafted seasonal cocktails created by the award-winning Shaker Consultancy, the team behind some of the world’s best cocktail bars.  A rotating selection of craft beers will also be available on tap and in bottles and an extensive international wine menu will provide diners with the perfect pairing for their meals.

Launched on 22nd May for the Summer, exclusively to Old Rectory House, we’re excited to have opened the doors to the newest, coolest place to be; The Summer House!

Kids Eat Free this Summer !

Sit on one of our stripy deckchairs or hammock with a cocktail in your hand surrounded by your mates or loved ones and it’s easy to think that you’re at the British seaside. Whether it was Brighton, Blackpool or Bognor that you visited year after year as a small child, we aim to take you back to that warm and summery feeling!
