Overview

Cliveden House was originally built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckinghamshire as a gift to his mistress. Since then, and to this day it has played host to the most interesting bevy of powerful personalities, debauched parties and scandalous affairs. The luxury five-star hotel is adorned with period features, antique furniture and just the right amount of modernity to truly serve its place as one of the world's most renowned destinations.

The hotel's motto is especially befitting: 'Nothing ordinary ever happens here, nor could it.' Cliveden is one of the grandest hotels anywhere - a Grade I listed Italianate stately mansion in a 375 acre estate presided over by the National Trust. Once the former home of the Astors and the location of the notorious Profumo Affair in the late 60s, this is the ultimate destination restaurant to enthral any occasion.

The grand dining room itself commands stunning views over the parterre gardens down to the River Thames, which is the perfect setting to enjoy the innovation, fastidious preparation and immaculate finishes that shine through each dish. One for the ultimate evening fine dining experience.

Members benefits are also available in The Astor Grill, Afternoon Tea at Cliveden, Han's Bar & Grill, The Dining Room at Chewton Glen, The Kitchen at Chewton Glen, Lygon Bar & Grill and Lygon Lounges.
