Fine dining, and a commitment to quality and excellence, sits at the heart of what we do.
We have been very fortunate in the appointment of Gareth Stevenson as our Head Chef. Gareth was already experienced, capable and accomplished when he joined us, but since taking the helm at Palé Hall he has truly established his credentials as a rising star. Like all great chefs Gareth’s food has evolved to become an expression of his own unique vision, creativity and skill, consistently winning praise and acclaim from our guests and reviewers alike. The exquisite creations that emerge from his kitchen form the culinary foundations of the Palé Hall experience.
Building relationships with local farmers, growers, fishermen, food producers and suppliers means that the menus at Palé Hall allow you to discover some of the finest food from our region, always fresh, seasonal, naturally delicious and, of course, responsibly, humanely and organically produced.
With three different dining rooms we can offer private dining to suit most occasions. You can sit and plan your menu with our chef, pick your wines with our sommelier and allow our team to make that special occasion perfect.
Venice, complete with the original range, is now a theatrical room with a Venetian theme. This room is for family dining where you can dine with your children of any ages from any of the menus, fine dining or bistro. It can seat up to eighteen as a private dining space. With its crystal chandeliers and Venetian mirrors, it’s a magical room. Dinner is served in here from 6pm.
The Henry Robertson Dining Room is our fine dining restaurant. It is a light and elegant room, and is where we serve afternoon tea and our two tasting menus created by our Head Chef Gareth Stevenson. It can be booked for larger private functions and seats fifty comfortably in banquet style. With its ornate plaster ceilings and marble fireplace this room was designed to impress and is the perfect place for a wedding buffet, a corporate lunch, or a large family gathering. Children are welcome in here for afternoon tea and those over 12 for evening dining.
The Henry Robertson serves Afternoon Tea 3.00-4.30pm and Dinner from 6.30pm. Booking is essential.
Please note that private dining is subject to availability and by prior arrangement only. Room hire charges may apply.
All dining with children under the age of 12 will be in the Venetian Family dining room or before 7.30pm in the bar. We regret we cannot accommodate children under the age of 12 in the Henry Robertson dining room except for afternoon tea. For larger family parties with younger children we would be delighted to provide a private dining area, subject to availability. Alternatively, we can provide a babysitting service, bookable in advance, at £10 per hour (minimum two hours).
Dining and relaxing with your dog
We welcome well behaved dogs on leads in the Huntsman Bar and Bistro. We can also offer in-room dining. We are happy for you to leave your dog in your room using the bathroom dog gate or we can provide a pre-booked dog sitting service at £10 per hour if you wish to dine in our fine dining restaurant.
We welcome dogs in the Grand Hall and the Huntsman but are unable to accommodate them in the Library or the Four Seasons Room.
We are immensely proud to announce that our restaurant has received an AA 3 rosette rating.
The AA rosette system sets very exacting standards. The 3 rosette award is only given to ‘Outstanding restaurants that achieve standards that demand national recognition well beyond their local area.’
This award validates the incredible dedication and commitment of our head chef Gareth Stevenson and his team, who continue to consistently strive for quality and excellence.
