THE FRENCH DINING ROOM - View here >>
On a visit to Paris in 1897, William Waldorf Astor was shown the gilded panelling in Madame de Pompadour's 18th century dining room at the Chateau d'Asnieres. Realising the proportions exactly matched those of the dining room at Cliveden he bought the panelling, table and chairs, then had the entire room reconstructed in his home.
Seating up to sixty guests, this Rococo masterpiece provides an incomparable setting for a romantic wedding breakfast, impressive lunch, private lunch or sumptuous dinner.
Bookings of the French Dining Room are coupled with use of the Library for pre-dining drinks.
