The Saloon Restaurant

The Saloon offers a stunning backdrop for dinner, in one of the oldest parts of the original Main House. It has a luxurious feel with artworks adorning the walls & rich, plush fabrics throughout. Executive chef Andrew Watts offers chiefly British dishes with bold flavours, using locally sourced ingredients inspired by the seasons. Despite the grandeur of The Saloon itself, we encourage a relaxed but meticulous service and do not enforce a ‘jacket & tie’ dress code in the restaurant.

The Saloon Restaurant is open 7 days a week. Serving Afternoon Tea Monday – Saturday from 12noon – 3.30pm, a delicious ‘a la carte’ evening menu Monday – Saturday from 6.00pm – 9:30pm and Sunday Lunch every Sunday from 12noon – 6.00pm.

The History

Every House has its own story to tell, and as we look forward to a bright and shiny future, let’s take a moment to travel back in time and peek into the memory vaults of this house,
to find out where it all began.

In 1492, at the court of Hill, in Burford, England, Rowland Hill is born. As he grows, he earns his fortune in textiles and becomes a very wealthy man. In 1549 he is appointed Lord Mayor of London, and is a good friend of Henry 8th.

A few years later, in 1556, he purchased the Manor of Hawkstone Hall.

Every part of the day was perfect, we didn’t have a worry in the world all day long.”
