The Dining Room is notable for the wonderful stuccoed ceiling above the dining table. The ceiling was recently restored after years of water damage; a task that took over 1,000 hours to complete. The dining table setting changes frequently, representing as closely as possible actual meals known to have taken place here.

Above the mantle is a portrait by an unknown artist of Admiral Robert Fairfax (1665-1725) who famously captured Gibraltar for Britain in 1704.
