Winter Orangeries

New for 2023 at Maldon High Street

Introducing the Winter Orangeries – a delightful and cozy dining experience that combines the magic of winter with a festive touch. Nestled within our delightful courtyard, the Winter Orangeries are designed to transport you to a warm and inviting winter wonderland. Picture yourself surrounded by lush winter plants, their vibrant greenery contrasting beautifully with the crisp winter air. The Orangeries are adorned with twinkling lights that create a mesmerising ambiance, making it the perfect setting for an intimate and enchanting dining experience.
Reserve a table

Our orangeries seat up to 10 people as a private group or smaller tables can dine along side others creating a festive atmosphere. These are available exclusively to book for our festive afternoon tea, with no extra charge to dine in the orangery compared to dining inside.

Please note this is a new concept and could be liable to change – we will not have all the full details, including pictures and accessibility until they are up! The orangeries will be dog friendly.
