The Roundhouse & The Rumbullion
Impeccable service and sublime luxury are on offer at The Roundhouse, a Unesco World Heritage Site, which combines a beautiful natural setting and unique, individual dining spaces bursting with character and historical interest. The strong, expertly crafted seasonal flavors from an award-winning young chef, combined with a passionate, knowledgeable staff ensures guests receive tailored and attentive service. Individual dining areas, each offering a different ambiance and culinary experience, can be hired for private parties and functions. This includes The Rumbullion — The Roundhouse terraces — where the 17th-century philosophy of ‘a riotous good time’ is evoked through the serving of vintage cocktails, whole roasts, loaves of fresh, oven-warm bread and decanters of wine in beautiful surrounds that include sprawling, centuries-old fruit trees. The Rumbullion’s atmosphere of decadence and abundance is perfect for a private celebration or joyous special occasion.
