Kings' Carriage House
Radiant red walls, ornate topiaries, and a sparkling chandelier dot one of the dining rooms at Kings' Carriage House, where patrons sip infusions of chamomile or Darjeeling tea while noshing finger sandwiches and pastries. With other rooms adorning collections of antique china and a mural of the Irish countryside, the Mandalay, Hunt, and Willow rooms accommodate up to 32 guests for afternoon tea, an evening meal by candlelight, or a Billy Joel look-alike competition. The table d'hote menus feature seasonal dishes such as wild-mushroom bisque and rack of lamb, culling ingredients and organic produce from local markets. Desserts sweeten evenings with dark Belgian chocolate cake, stilton cheese and fruit tartlettes, before a glass of port caps off nights.
Proprietors Elizabeth King and Paul Farrell designed Kings' Carriage House's two stories to recreate the country charm of a European manor within an urban setting. The interior heralds times past with elegant décor such as antique furnishings, crimson tablecloths, and gilded paintings of heralds announcing the present.
