The Cedar Restaurant

The Cedar Restaurant

A 2 AA Rosette restaurant perfect for anyone looking for fine dining in Northamptonshire.

A renowned restaurant in its own right, The Cedar Restaurant offers seasonal and regional dishes made with creativity and served with a touch of flair. This 2 AA rosette restaurant in Northamptonshire delights with both ambience and cuisine.

The Cedar Restaurant now occupies most of the ground floor of the south wing, the earliest part of the house, built in Tudor times by Richard Knightley in the early 16th century. The old restaurant provides a fittingly intimate space for sampling exceptional dishes: the beamed ceiling and stone fireplaces lend a classic feel and, on a clear day and night, your food is accompanied by views across the gardens and parkland. Whether it is to celebrate a special occasion or just for the pleasure of it, here you will find great food and a fantastic wine list. 

PRICE: from £39 per person
