The larger of our two cellars, The Napoleon Cellar is perfect for stand-up receptions and tastings, that could be combined with a company meeting. Elegant dining experience perfect for Christmas parties.

The Napoleon Cellars combines the old with the new. State of the art audio visual facilities discreetly presented next to historic original features.
