I love dining at The Orangery, both for the food and the service. The staff are always very friendly with just the right amount of service which is never intrusive. And the food is consistently top quality.

The meal wasn't that amazing. It was very fatty. There was no atmosphere at the Orangery & I probably wont go back again.
