Dine in the barrel vaulted, stone walled Dungeon Restaurant
Descending the worn flags of an ancient stone stairway, you are ushered into the barrel vaulted dungeons. The atmosphere is heightened by the play of dramatic shadows across the rough hewn stone work, and the burnished steel of the weapons and armour that adorn the walls. It is hard to imagine a more evocative setting than the Dungeon Restaurant, in which guests enjoy excellent traditional Scottish castle cuisine.
The Orangery, with its sweeping views over the gently flowing River Esk, offers a more informal environment, plus a lighter and more contemporary menu. Again the cuisine is primarily Scottish, but with continental influences.
Dining at the castle is a unique experience. The ancient barrel-vaulted dungeons provide an unusual setting to enjoy the fine, traditional Scottish and classical French castle cuisine, from fresh local produce. For example; Salmon, Venison and Grouse are complemented by an interesting selection of wines and an unrivalled quality of friendly and professional service. Private parties for up to 22 guests can be catered for in the gate-side.
A more relaxed alternative to the unique barrel vaulted Dungeon Restaurant, the Orangery overlooks the meandering South Esk River and tranquil scenic parkland. The eclectic style decor makes an enchanting dining experience, complemented by a contemporary Scottish and European menu, with healthy and light options available for Aqueous Spa guests. The Orangery is the ideal place to rest, replenish and unwind.
