It was on a visit to Paris in 1897 that William Waldorf Astor was shown the intricate gilded panelling in Madame de Pompadour’s 18th-century dining room at the Château d’Asnières

Realising the proportions exactly matched those of the dining room at Cliveden House, he bought the panelling, table and chairs, then had the entire room reconstructed in his home.

A Rococo masterpiece with views of the river and surrounding Berkshire countryside, it seats up to 60 guests. The French Dining Room provides an incomparable setting for a romantic wedding breakfast, impressive lunch or sumptuous dinner.
