The Orangery Restaurant combines grand architecture and elegant design. Historically used as a store for orange trees and then as a private theatre, the Orangery has a significant place in the history of Blenheim Palace, and now is open to visitors as a stunning brasserie-style restaurant, serving elevenses, lunch and Afternoon Tea daily. Our menu celebrates fabulously British food, with seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients both from the Blenheim Palace Estate and local farms.
