Delicious lunch in a spectacular, historic setting. “The Melba” Cocktail definitely worth trying as a starter! The Menu exceptional. Well provisioned store, stocking Dame Nellie Melba and Lord Vestey themed high quality produce.

They had a good selection of wines for tasting and we enjoyed quite a few of them however the staff who was serving us was almost rude which spoilt the experience a bit. Recommend the sparkling rose from 2016.More

Good afternoon, Thank you for your question, ideally we would like the table back by midday, which should give you sufficient time to enjoy your brunch without being rushed. Regards, Coombe the Melba Estate
