Welcome to The Grange Restaurant and Gift Shop

Posted by Sarah O'Brien

We’re very excited to share the news that our new venue, The Grange Restaurant and Gift Shop, is now open! Find out more about what you can expect when you come to The Grange.

Mouth-watering seasonal dishes

Serving delicious, healthy breakfasts and lunches, together with freshly roasted coffee, Sparkling Afternoon Tea and a selection of mouth-watering cakes, you can drop by for a wholesome breakfast, pop in for a refreshing snack or linger over a nutritious lunch – all at affordable prices. View the menus here

A great atmosphere

The Grange has an elegant but relaxed, welcoming vibe. The venue is bright and spacious, with lots of natural light. Our friendly team of servers will greet you with a smile – it goes a long way! 

Deaf-friendly design

The Grange has a state-of-the-art design - with acoustics in mind - to enhance diners’ listening experience. Features such as acoustic flooring, ‘sound clouds’ on the ceiling, and a hearing loop for those with hearing aids make us more accessible to those with hearing problems (and those without) than other eateries in the area, which we are incredibly proud of.

A big welcome to everyone

Are families with children welcome? Of course - we’ve even got a special kid’s menu and a milk warming station for babies.

Can we host business lunches? Sure, and you’re welcome to use our free Wi-Fi.

Can dog owners bring their four-legged friends? Woof! (that means yes), and we’ve got fresh water and treats to keep the dogs happy. 

Everyone is welcome here at The Grange. The venue is ideal for those needing to refuel after a walk, run or cycle in the beautiful Chilterns countryside, for parents on the school run, for people catching up with friends and those who just fancy treating themselves to a delicious lunch. 

Gift shop and Hearing Hub

We’ve got a lovely gift shop at The Grange, stocking a range of original and interesting gifts – perfect for a bit of after-lunch browsing.

For those wishing to find out more about how to manage their own hearing, our onsite Hearing Hub is a one-stop shop, offering useful products and information and advice on how to do this.

A great cause

Our new venture has been opened to raise awareness and funds to help us help more deaf people.  Every single penny of profit from The Grange Restaurant and Gift Shop goes towards training more dogs to change the lives of deaf people.

Opening Week Celebrations: 29 May to 3 June

Whether it’s enjoying a meal, drink or snack, perusing our gift shop or taking part in our family events, we offer everyone a warm welcome to The Grange

To celebrate our opening, we are hosting a variety of activities throughout the week which will appeal to everyone - from children to dog-lovers and food connoisseurs.
