What is the meaning of the the following?

You can have the run of the place, except for a lovely private restaurant we keep open for our friends. (This is a statement made by a host to her unexpected guests who have just arrived. The host has a big home which has about 50 rooms and more than half dozen big halls, in one of which a restaurant is run.)
