FAQs

Do you offer a dog-sitting service?

We offer a limited dog-sitting service, which must be pre-booked (£25 per dog). If you are unable to make other arrangements for your four-legged friends, one of our team will look after them at Meed & Greet tent in the cap park for the duration, providing shade, water and walk. If you would like your dog to be fed, please bring food, otherwise all you need to provide is a good lead. Please contact the Box Office if you would like to book Dog Sitting on 01962 791020.

What should I wear?

To add to the atmosphere of a visit to The Grange, black tie is preferred, but suitable elegant alternatives are acceptable and creative individuality is encouraged. On cooler dats a warm layer is recommended. When considering footwear please be aware our grounds can be damp or uneven. On very hot days gentlemen are welcome to remove their jackets.

Can we look around the house if we are not dining in the restaurant?

Yes. Visit the house for our Art@TheGrange exhibition and Lady Ashburton’s shop. The house and grounds are open two hours before the performance starts, during the interval and after the performance.

Can I book a porter?

Porters are available to pre-book at a cost of £20 per evening. All porter bookings must be received a week before your visit. Alternatively, we have a buggy service which is available on the day to help you and your guests to your destination.

A member of my party has mobility issues. Will this be a problem?

Our site has moderately challenging terrain, but we will always do our best to help those with restricted mobility. Please contact Caroline in the Box Office to advise her of your needs so arrangements can be made on 01962 791020. We offer a reserved car park with a dedicated buggy service to transport you to your destination and back, and if you have severely restricted mobility we can arrange the use of our drop-off zone.

What will I be able to purchase on the day?

Do I have to pre-book a table in the marquee?
