Private Dining

For larger events, the Grade II* listed Watts Gallery, one of the most beautiful small galleries in Europe, offers a refined backdrop for dinners and grand receptions. From the dramatic entrance to the sumptuous red flocked wallpaper, your guests can soak up the atmospheric spaces and the unique collection left by the eminent Victorian artist G F Watts.

We can offer exclusive evening hire of the gallery, where you can dine in the historic galleries or in a marquee on the gallery lawn, with this beautiful Victorian building as your backdrop.

For smaller dinners and receptions, enjoy private use of Limnerslease, the Wattses' Arts & Crafts home, situated in the beautiful woodland along the Pilgrims Way. Take in the unique architectural features as you dine, including the extraordinary gesso ceiling panels designed and made by Mary Watts.
