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.

    Very disappointing. The food was bland and vegetables undercooked to a ridiculous degree. The menu was vague and every item needed explanation. Desserts no good if you don't like mousse.

    We really loved our trip! The castle was everything we hoped and more. The staff was really great, all very sweet. The room was amazing and the food very high quality.

    An unusual setting for a lovely afternoon tea. Great service and delicious food too!

    Lovely experience, very attentive and friendly staff. A nice variety of vegetarian sandwiches. The cakes were delicious. We were able to relax in the lounge afterwards with a glass of wine.

    We had the tasting menu with a wine pairing. We felt a bit rushed. Before we got a chance to finish our wine, we already had the next one on the table. The service was friendly but a sommelier or someone with a bit more knowledge would have been great.
    Food was nice but the portions were tiny. Even if the menu consists of 6 dishes, at least one of the needs to be a secent size. Food was nice, the canapés served before dinner were excellent.
    Lovely venue and athmosphere.
