The Great Hall Dining Room

For a special celebration, like a family anniversary, pre-wedding dinner, or VIP Board lunch/dinner, why not enjoy a candlelit dining experience in front of a Tudor fireplace fit for a royal palace surrounded by murals and a gold leaf painted ceiling by the renowned artist Adam Dant?

The Great Hall Dining Room can seat up to 26 guests and retains its unique medieval character, hung with oil paintings of historic figures and family members associated with Upton Cressett since the 17th century. The main table seats 14 whilst another two tables can be added to make the guests number 26.  Minimum number is ten.

Dinners in the Great Hall Dining room also include a champagne reception in the Salon reception hall.  All served by our staff. There is a hire fee for the Hall plus the dining menu of choice. For more fine dining details and menus, email

Please enquire as to availability. We are able to include a guided tour.
