Dining in the Long Interval


Performances at Nevill Holt Opera feature a long dining interval, of between 60 to 90 minutes. During the interval, audiences are free to enjoy the landscaped gardens, with fabulous dining experiences on offer from our partner Stones Events.


2017 Featured Chef

NHO and Stones Events are proud to announce that our 2017 dining experiences will feature menus designed and curated by British celebrity chef Ben Tish of Saltyard Group.


Private Dining

For a truly exceptional experience you can dine in the exclusive Font House with a party of up to 14 people, or book one of our private dining pavilions.

Please note that Font House must be booked directly through the NHO office on 020 7534 1540.


Restaurant Dining

With a menu of gourmet cuisine designed by our distinguished local catering partner Stones Events, why not book a table in the Festival Restaurant for the long dining interval?

Buffet Dining in the Picnic Garden

Our popular picnic buffet tables will this year be curated and designed by celebrity chef Ben Tish of the Saltyard group. Situated in the Kitchen Garden for the first time, this delicious season menu will offer the best locally sourced produce for a less formal interval picnic option.

Bring your own

NHO audiences are welcome to bring their own picnic and rugs, to picnic al fresco on the Cedar lawn. Those who wish to book seats and tables for their own picnics will be accommodated in the Nevill Holt Chapel in 2017.
