Dining

We are in such a beautiful and rural part of Berkshire we decided a canvas marquee wouldn’t quite work…

The Orangery is for dining and socialising

Our 17th Century traditional country house boasts original features such as open fireplaces, exposed beams and tiled floors with an elegant interior throughout. For a modern twist, we created our stunning Orangery, truly combining the old and the new.

The bright and airy space framed with tall glass windows adds a touch of nature from our beautiful gardens for your wedding breakfast backdrop. Our Orangery is decorated with stylish simplicity, with natural sunlight bouncing off our glittery floor and perfect white table linen.

Our Orangery can seat up to 152 guests for your wedding breakfast, with plenty of chill-out sofa space for relaxing in-between dancing to your favourite songs.

Smokin Street Food

We are Ben and Rachel — a husband and wife team with entrepreneurial spirits, who thrive on a challenge. Ben has a lifelong love of food and a boyish obsession with fire. Luckily, Rachel has a flair for veggie dishes. As well as keeping Ben on track, she makes sure our food appeals as much to vegetarians and vegans as to meat lovers! So at Smokin’ Street Food, we combine the two by making hand-made, freshly made to order, stone-baked pizza with the main components of our dishes being smoked and flavoured by fire.

ChilliDogs

ChilliDogs was born in 2013 from a love of good food and a growing loathing of being a kitchen-slave! It started with Dan's chilli con carne he was infamous for making whenever friends came around for dinner. Steph, his wife who had been working in events, soon came on board and they both cut their teeth on the festival scene.

Aborfield hog roast

We are a family run company based in Berkshire, very close to Reading and Wokingham. All meat roasted by Arborfield Hog Roasts is sourced locally and can be traced back to the farm where it was raised.
