Around the table are dozens of oil portraits of former occupants of the house, including Henry VII.
Knole, which is owned by the National Trust and with half the rooms rented to the Sackville family, was built in the 15th century in an even older manor house, then owned by the Archbishops of Canterbury.
The house, which sits on 1000 acres of parkland, is one of the largest houses in Britain and has 365 rooms, 52 staircases, 12 gates and seven courtyards.
