The Lawn room is the perfect venue to host a party, corporate event or just share drinks with friends.

Overlooking the tranquil green tennis courts, our spacious Lawn Room itself is The Northern’s social hub. Snug in winter, airy in summer when the patio doors are flung open onto the deck, it is always the perfect place to read the papers with a cup of coffee, eat, relax after a match, work if you really have to (there is free WiFi) or just gaze at that view.

Eat & drink

Our aim is simple: to deliver simple, fresh, nutritious food freshly prepared on the premises from locally sourced produce, accompanied by friendly service from our in house team.

Our seasonal menu has been designed to offer flexibility and variety, with healthy options, comfort food and hearty dishes to refuel after a match or workout.

Food is served throughout the day in the Lawn Room. During the summer we often get the BBQ and wood fired pizza oven on the patio going.
