Dining Tables

All styles of dining table are made to order: Refectory, Monk's Refectory or Gateleg. We also offer handmade farmhouse or kitchen tables.

Seventeenth century oak tables with boarded tops were referred to as Refectory tables. These tables would have turned, gun barrel legs or sometimes carved bulbous turnings. These dining tables evolved from trestles with boards on top. Some of these tables had cleated ends to keep the tops flat but, with expansion and contraction of timber, they do not remain flush with the edge of the table. Extending tables can be made using the Refectory Dining Table.

Gateleg dining tables became popular during the middle of the seventeenth century. Their main advantage is that they can be folded down to take up less space, when not in use. We offer a swinging single or double gateleg table, depending on the size of the opened top.

The Refectory Dining Table is made using solid ash or oak timber. It can be made to the length and width of your choice.

These dining tables can be made with a drawer either on the side or end of the table. The table can also be made to extend, either by dropping a leaf in the middle, or by pulling an extra leaf out at either end.

Care should be taken when considering sizes, to allow room for the chairs to fit in between the table legs.

The top can be removed for delivery.

Monks Refectory Dining Table

Monk's Refectory Dining Table

The Monks Refectory Dining Table style may have originated from monasteries, hence the name.

The advantage of these dining tables is that they can be made to be ‘flat packed’, if necessary, for shipping.

We have developed an extending version of the table, using drop-leaf inserts, to give the owner a number of size variations.

Care should still be taken when considering sizes to ensure that chairs to fit in between the table legs, but the legs are less obtrusive on this style.

Gateleg Dining Table

Gateleg Dining Table

The Gateleg Dining Table is great for space saving, as it takes up far less space when closed. But please bear in mind that when the flaps, or leaves, are down the chairs will not be able to fit under the table.

Gateleg dining tables can be made round or oval and with one or two gatelegs, depending on the size. A 84” x 60” gateleg dining table, for example, will comfortably sit 10 guests.

These bespoke tables are handmade, usually in ash or oak.

Trestle Dining Table

Trestle Dining Table

These tables are handmade to your required size. The trestle table has a cleated end on the top to hold it flat.

The style of the Trestle Dining Tables mean that they can be made to ‘flat pack’. This does make it far more economical to ship long distances than a refectory dining table which takes up a lot of space.

Care should be taken when considering sizes, to allow room for the chairs to fit in between the table legs.

Farmhouse Table

Farmhouse Kitchen Table

The farmhouse table is not often chosen for a dining room as it looks more the part in a kitchen, especially with a set of Windsor chairs around it. These bespoke kitchen tables look great in natural ash for the kitchen.

The turned legs can be altered to your choice, but the example shown is standard.

These farmhouse tables can easily be made to extend. The table can also have a drawer, either on the side, or one at both ends.

Care should be taken when considering sizes, to allow room for the chairs to fit in between the table legs.
