The Old Hall is a striking and beautifully restored Jacobean manor just outside Ely in Cambridgeshire. Enjoying beautiful views of over 3000 acres of field and farmland, The Old Hall is home to The Orangery, a fine dining restaurant serving seasonal British cuisine.
With views out to Ely Cathedral from the restaurant, and luxurious traditional decor, The Orangery is a light and airy space enjoying incredible views.
The restaurant runs a seasonal tasting menu at varied times throughout the year, offering guests the chance to enjoy up to 5 courses of delicious sounding dishes designed by the head chef.
Dishes are seasonal and dependent on local produce and availability. However, an example of the menu on offer includes Cromer crab and squid ink tortellini, served with apple, dill and sea herbs, and seared free range guinea fowl supreme served with truffle butter and baked potato fondant.
Dessert sounds equally as tempting, with dishes such as blackberry parfait and apple, honey and lavender sorbet. You can also opt for paired wines with each of the 5 courses, or perhaps you'll go all-out and finish your evening with a stay in one of the luxury bedrooms of the manor.
If you're looking for a more relaxed visit to The Orangery, take a look at what else the restaurant has to offer. Afternoon tea is available to book which includes a delicious looking range of homemade sandwiches, savoury bites and delicate cakes. You can also opt for the sparkling afternoon tea if you're looking for something extra special; this includes tea and coffee, plus a glass of organic cava.
The Orangery also holds other popular themed menu events, such as their brasserie style steak nights (selected dates only). During themed menu events, The Orangery is transformed to enhance the dining experience. Ask the team about upcoming events at The Orangery to book your place.
