Able to seat 380 comfortably to dine, this hall was originally built in 1622 to be a entertaining and dining space for King James I. Seating can be arranged into intimate round tables of up to 12, or arranged into up to 3 spectacular long tables spanning the length of the hall. The original ceiling paintings commissioned by King Charles I are a magnificent sight and certainly do not lack for a talking point!
