Lord Savile's Kitchen 

This delicious restaurant is housed in the restored Victorian kitchen of the Abbey's remaining Jacobean wing.

The kitchen as it is now was restored in 1996 to enable the kitchen to be used as a restaurant. The refurbishment works were sympathetically completed to retain as many of the features from the 2nd Baron's country house kitchen, including flagstone floors, an open range, two ovens, a roasting mechanism and a glass floor from the now exposed underground well.

Today, Lord Savile's Kitchen provides visitors with an excellent waitress service restaurant specialising in two and three course carvery lunches.  Check out the current menu here.
