Dining in a Scottish Castle Restaurant Has Never Been Better!

When you want that special candle-lit dinner our Garden Restaurant, overlooking the formal walled gardens, is the perfect place to be.

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.
