Sunderland Room


The Sunderland Room is the perfect backdrop for your next meeting or event. Named after Lady Dorothy Sidney, who married the Earl of Sunderland in the 17th century, the Sunderland Room is situated on the upper floor, with access to the Minstrels’ Gallery that overlooks the Baron’s Hall. This is a charming room, ideal for meetings, lunches, formal dinners and office Christmas dining. Today fine portraits from the family collection hang on the part-panelled and part-sandstone walls and the room has a light but mellow atmosphere, enhanced by a fire in the winter. The room can be partitioned by a heavy curtain to create two smaller spaces - ideal for a break-out space or a separate area for catering. A popular choice, it can seat up to 90 guests for dining, 32 boardroom style or 120 theatre style.
