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.

Overall outstanding - food, service and experience. The castle is a terrific atmosphere, steeped in royal history. We enjoyed a cocktail in the lounge while viewing the menu. We had venison and brill. Both were outstanding. I highly recommend this experience to everyone.

Took my daughter and granddaughter for afternoon tea. It was so lovely. My 8 year old granddaughter was so happy and really enjoyed the castle surroundings. The tea was delicious and so much food. Delicious sandwiches scones and cakes and a lovely pot of tea. Only slight issue was the sandwiches, which were lovely for my daughter and myself but were an acquired taste for an 8 year old but she just made for it with scones!
Lovely touch giving us a cake box to take home what we didn’t eat. Much appreciated by my grandsons when we got home
