Food & Drink

Food is incredibly important to us. We use fresh produce from the Castle Kitchen gardens and always focus on using local suppliers to ensure you enjoy some of the region’s finest ingredients. We believe in serving meals, not sculptures on a plate, and there’s always something new to tempt you as the menu changes regularly to capture the essence of each season. Sir Thomas looks after the wine list himself and enthusiastically spends months finding the right wines and making sure he tastes them all! We also offer a selection of beers from local brewers in cask, keg or bottle and an array of spirits including some of the most popular and local Gins and fine Island and Highland Malts. Well-behaved dogs are welcome to accompany their owners into the Bar Bistro and the Lounge areas of The Boar’s Head. To make a reservation visit The Boar’s Head website:
