With a grand marble staircase, through it’s floor to ceiling windows and grand chandeliers give this charming room a touch of regal elegance. Its most unusual feature, and one of the venues biggest mysteries is an ornate yet unfinished Trompe l’oeil painted ceiling, commissioned by the Ridley family in the style of Eugene Delacroix – leader of the French Romantic school.

The room features an 89′ plasma screen, and in-built audio equipment, making it the perfect setting for presentations.

Whether you are looking for a boardroom for a discreet meeting or a selection of distinct suites for a major conference, reception or fine dining occasion, we provide versatile spaces and unrivalled standards of service.

The building was built during the late 1820s and early 1830s.
