Orangerie Restaurant

where the food is fantastic, the wine excellent and the service even better. Chef Nicolene provides an exciting and sumptuous
a la carte menu to suit all tastes. The Orangerie is the perfect place to spoil yourself and entertain friends.

Indulge yourself with Le Lude’s Morning and Afternoon Tea, with a selection of freshly baked treats accompanied by a glass
of the estate’s award winning MCC. Served daily from 10:00am to 3.30pm onwards. Prior booking essential.
