Delicious meal, excellent service. The lamb was tender, flavorful and done perfectly. The soufflé dessert was an incredible compliment of flavors.

The only Tudor castle in England to be run as a hotel, Thornbury Castle is an historic building which once played host to Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Classic heritage cuisine is served in the hexagonal-panelled main dining room, with its heavy oil paintings and roaring fires.

Modern internationally-inspired dishes are combined with traditional favourites, created using only the finest and freshest ingredients, sourced from the castle’s own gardens, local markets and nearby suppliers. Highlights on the Thornbury Castle menu include poached & grilled veal rump with smoked garlic, gnocchi, olives, broad beans & foie gras, tomato & courgette pesto risotto with walnut, parmesan & rainbow radish, and glazed lemon verbena tart with raspberry, elderflower & sherbet for dessert.

The Castle cellars hold an award-winning selection of vintage & carefully-selected New World varieties, as well as wine from the castle’s own 500-year-old vineyard. Hearty roasts are served every Sunday.

Thornbury Castle in Bristol is a 15-minute drive from Patchway Rail Station.

    Lovely experience - great food. Starter and main were much better than starter. Nice to be in a gorgeous setting / room. Front out house was exceptional and made us feel at ease

    Family and I came for lunch Sunday before Xmas. Food and service was great. My 91 year old mother ate all 3 courses and loved it. The fires were lit and it was welcoming and warm as toast. Being a castle makes it very special at Christmas time. We've been before so it's highly recommended.
