From starting a holiday the right way with a relaxed breakfast, to a catch-up dinner and drinks with friends, the contemporary bar and dining room makes the ideal meeting place.

The impressive space is dominated by a huge glass and wrought iron atrium roof that floods the venue with natural light. Shelves bursting with greenery surround the light and airy space and hanging foliage alongside delicate, floaty Moooi Heracleum lights overhead creates a living roof space that transports diners to a Kew Gardens greenhouse.

The botanical theme continues throughout with palm print fabrics, Marrakech Dandelion tiles, and plush banquettes upholstered in a soft, dusty orchid pink leather. Tucked away nooks embrace darker tones of sage and antique leather with velvet cushions and a mural of Van Gough’s Almond Tree in Blossom.

The bar boasts a rich yet contemporary look featuring wooden herringbone parquet flooring, brass and glass furnishings and Lee Broom cut crystal pendant lights add some classic sophistication to enjoy with a cocktail.

The comfort of the indoors is taken outside onto the showstopper terrace that captures the feeling of the French Riviera with built-in banquette seating, beautiful French wrought iron garden furniture, shade for the summer, heaters for the winter and handy USB ports and sockets meaning you don’t have to sacrifice the sunshine for your working lunch.
