Lunch Time Menu

We were in Thornbury and decided to go for a lunch time meal. The castle can be found at the bottom of the high street, and you can drive in and park in the rear car park which is approx 75 yards from the reception area. I have trouble walking so I was surprised that there were no disabled spaces... read more

We visited Thornbury Castle earlier this week to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, we booked the midweek celebration special, which included one nights stay and a two course dinner, on arrival we were very happy to be advised we had been given a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room, we were shown to our gorgeous room by the very friendly receptionist...

My friends and I booked a night at Thornbury Castle, and we were excited to see that dinner and breakfast were included with our rate. The three-course dinner was superb - the portions may look small, but they more than fill you up by the end of the night! The wait staff were incredibly professional and attentive, and every dish...

We know that this place is expensive as we have been several times before. The serving staff are first class, the food pretty but miniscule portions, make up with plenty of bread (nice). A bottle of mediocre Sancerre at £54.00 was a complete rip-off !! A modest meal for four, two of us only had two courses and a bottle... More

The tasting menu was just out of this world. The portions appeared small but by the end of the courses we were stuffed!! Very rich food, incredible quality and a chocolate fondant to finish to end all meals!!!! A fabulous wine list with some jaw dropping prices, but all very good wines from good years...! Service was second to none.

Our stay was all planned by my husband as a surprise and I enjoyed every moment We stayed in two bedrooms 2 nights in each but even the move happened seamlessly as we ate breakfast The food throughout was excellant, as was the care and attention paid to us from all the staff members we met

I visited Thornbury Castle for afternoon tea with 4 members of my family. We were offered a comprehensive list of teas or coffee to choose from. The sandwiches provided were extremely fresh and included vegetarian options (as I requested for 2 of the party). There was a choice of plain and fruit scones (warm) with jam and clotted cream, followed... More

The last time I went to Thornbury Castle for dinner was late 2006. Today I went for lunch. My daughter was treating my partner and myself as we had something to celebrate. My partner on numerous occasions for both business and pleasure had either stayed there or had meals and business meetings and had always sung Thornbury Castle's praises. Well,... More
