Private Dining @ The Temple House

Private Dining

We all enjoy good food but it is even better enjoyed together. Dinner at Temple House is a wonderful experience. Bring a group of friends, family or whoever and be seated around a huge mahogany table with views down the lake and an open fire cracking contentedly beside you. 

If you, a friend or a colleague have a special occasion coming up why not celebrate it at Temple House. You can either stay for a night or two or just come for dinner.

  • Family Occasions
  • Birthdays
  • Anniversary
  • Engagement party
  • Hen Party
  • Baby Shower
  • Naming Ceremony Day
  • Corporate Day
  • Weekend break for a bunch of friends

We can cater for anything from 12 to 120 with ease. 20-30 on one table. We'll just shape the day accordingly. Exclusivity will depend on numbers too.
Combine your stay with some touring or activities

The best thing to do is to just ask! We would love to put something together for you.

Sample Menu

Menus are seasonal and vary each time – this is a sample
We take great care to source our ingredients as locally as possible, often mere metres from the dining room. We offer a set menu but are always pleased to cater for dietary requirements with advance notice. In other words, if there is something that you do not or cannot eat just tell us.
