The conservatory was built in 1993 to provide the much needed extra space demanded by trends towards more informality of seating and dining. In this, it has done its job very well and continues to be much used today.

From the outside, it looks much like any other conservatory of that era attached to an outside wall. However, the inside has a comfortable style that blends well with the main lounge and bar areas alongside.

The conservatory is much the preferred place for informal dining and afternoon tea and at other times for peaceful reading and perhaps that rare contemplation alone.
