Let our attentive waiting staff take care of your evening, serving a delectable range of traditional fare or more contemporary cuisine with an international flavour. Pick up the wine menu, and our expert sommelier can help you select exclusive vintages from our cellars or the finest of New World wines.
For hundreds of years, the kitchen garden has provided much of the food used at Thornbury Castle, and under the enthusiastic skills of head gardener and groundskeeper John and his team, the vegetables, edible flowers and seasonal fruit used by our chefs are just about as fresh and flavoursome as you can get.
History is as infused in the kitchens as it is in the entire castle: Thornbury has a dazzling food heritage, particularly since the ‘70s, where it became the place for international stars such as Sophia Loren and Laurence Olivier to wine and dine in salubrious style. Senior Waiter Pepe Gomez Rivas, with 40 years service, tells great tales of the extravagant parties and visiting celebrities, in an era when patron chef Kenneth Bell became the first chef outside of France to earn a Michelin star.
You can be sure to get the best wine and food advice from our Food and Beverage team, who have a passion for customer service, wine and food. Add to that one amazing team of discreet yet attentive waiting staff, and you get a truly high-class dining experience.
**Please note that dining in the dungeon is available from May-September and is suitable for parties between six and eight people, with a minimum spend on drinks/wines of £300.
**Please note we welcome children aged eight and above at Thornbury Castle.
