Dining in a Scottish Castle Restaurant Has Never Been Better!

Whether you want that special candle-lit dinner in the Garden Restaurant which overlooks the formal walled gardens; or a more informal meal in comfortable surroundings in front of the roaring log fire in the 11ft fireplace that was formerly the Bishop’s kitchen in the 1500’s.

The Castle’s original restaurant and dining room has been transformed into the Whisky Bar and reception that features 15th Century stonewalls, completed with oak panelling and Caithness slab flooring.

The chefs at the Dornoch Castle Hotel have been working exceptionally hard maintaining, for six years running an AA Rosette Status. Using locally source produce to highlight all that Scottish cuisine has to offer. Our food and beverage team have crafted a wine and whisky list especially to compliment the chef’s menu.

On sunny days, the garden is a sociable hive of activity with customers enjoying an open air dinning experience in our beautiful walled gardens, an ideal location for taking in Scotland’s long summer nights.

Meals are served daily from 6.00pm to 9.00pm daily.

Our menu changes frequently depending on seasonal produce, below is a sample menu.
