Limited menu choice, unfortunately a bit of style over substance for a restaurant in this price bracket. The two meals I selected were good by any standard the other half unusually struggled to find something she liked. Service was a of a slower pace but charming all the same.

We have just arrived home from a fantastic overnight stay with dinner & breakfast with Secret Escapes, we had booked a classic room but were upgraded to 'The Stafford Suite' which was located outside the main building near the entrance to the castle, the room was beautiful, spacious, full of character with a bathroom just as big with a free...

We stayed two nights at Thornbury Castle - love the castle but the restaurant unfortunately does not live up to expectation. They are obviously trying by serving little nibbles with pre-dinner drinks - these were actually very nice. Both my husband and myself had starters - my husband had a salmon & pea tartlet. He couldn't find a single piece... More

As it was our wedding anniversary, we wanted to go somewhere special and chose Thornbury castle, and I am very glad we did ! The setting was perfect, the castle holds so much history and the decor is wonderful. The staff were brilliant in every way and very polite. We had afternoon tea, and I can honestly say it was...

Great atmosphere, delicious food, great service, a truly memorable experience. Pre-dinner drinks in a magnificent drawing room added to the whole experience.

I rarely write a bad review on trip advisor as I feel it impacts on the restaurant concerned but this time I felt it was justified. We organised a family celebration dinner and asked for 2 bottles of champagne to be ready when we arrived at 7.30. no sign of the champagne and no room to sit in the library... More

We came here last week and we could not fault the service provided. My aunt & uncle are over from Australia so we decided to go here for afternoon tea. They were delighted! We were amazed at the selection of cakes, all laid out on a tiered cake stand with sandwiches. We had plenty of clotted cream and jam, and... More

We visited Thornbury Castle for afternoon tea for a birthday celebration and although we were very impressed with the atmosphere and the food, the service really let the experience down and ended up making us feel it was not value for money (despite receiving a discount at the end). We were told that the reason for the poorer service was... More
