Dornoch Castle Hotel

Bar meals, garden restaurant and exclusive dining in the Vault

About Dornoch Castle Hotel

Reopens 26th April with indoor dining to 8pm (no alcohol) and outdoor dining & drinking in stretch tent until 10pm.

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 which was formerly the Bishop’s kitchen in the 1500s there is an excellent choice of dishes. This room has been transformed into a comfortable bar and reception and features 15th century stone walls.

For a private dining experience, we now offer the Vault (although not available during COVID restrictions).

Pre-booking is recommended for Afternoon Tea. On sunny days the garden is a sociable hive of activity with customers enjoying an open-air dining experience on the lawns.

Dogs are welcome in the walled garden.

Dornoch Castle has an excellent reputation amongst the local populace and visitors alike and is now recognised as one of the premier dining venues of the north and has retained Rosette status for the past 6 years.
