Eating & Drinking

We know that most groups like to eat together and at a time that fits in with your itinerary.

To ensure that this is possible, we have three designated rooms that offer your group the chance to rest, recharge and eat in elegant surroundings.The rooms are all based in the impressive Stables at Chatsworth. All the rooms are on the ground floor and are easily accessible for people in wheelchairs. The rooms can be booked for groups of 25 - 55, subject to availability.

For groups, we would be happy to arrange morning coffee and biscuits on arrival, a 2 course buffet lunch (552KB) or afternoon tea (552KB).

Please note there is no room hire fee for groups of 25 or more. All prices include VAT and are charged per person in addition to the cost of your visit. We regret that group menus are not available during weekends, Bank holiday Mondays or special event days. A non-refundable deposit of £100.00 is required in order to confirm your catering booking.

Other options

If you would prefer, we also have the beautiful Carriage House Restaurant, which is self-service, or the Cavendish Rooms, which are waiter service. We also have various "Food to Go" outlets which stock a wide range of sandwiches, cakes and pasties.

Lunch vouchers (£10 or £15) are also available for the Carriage House Restaurant. Please note that no change will be given when redeeming the vouchers. You will be invoiced for the numbers redeemed.
