The Dining Experience at Chartwell Conservatory Pond in Kingston

We make sure every meal is memorable and different every time you sit wherever you like in the dining room. For lunch and dinner, you can choose our delicious daily specials like a broccoli and cheese quiche or grilled ham steak with scalloped potatoes, carefully prepared by our kitchen team. Or you always have the option to select from our extensive à la carte menu, with a wide selection of homemade soups, salads, and entrées.

3 Plates of food -one with a pie, one with fish and one with salad. 3 assiettes de nourriture - une avec une tarte, une avec du poisson et une avec de la salade.

You’ll find favourites you know and love like spaghetti with tomato basil sauce and garlic bread, or a turkey club sandwich with all the fixings, or honey garlic beef stir fry with Shanghai noodles. We change our menu four times a year, so we can properly highlight and celebrate the best each season has to offer.
