“A perfectly delicious evening.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This was my first visit to Thornbury Castle and on entering the car park you can see the splendour of the Castle, as you enter the building the marvel of its beauty and history is immense.
We had pre dinner drinks in the library; the surroundings were perfect, comfortable and luxurious but not pretentious
The restaurant was intimate and again the surroundings were perfect, the décor and design offered an intriguing thought into the history of the castle, I have to admit I was completely mesmerized by the surroundings.
The waiting staff were fantastic, prompt, polite and efficient, we had 5 courses which were all incredible but I have to comment on the magnificent “rib eye of beef”, cooked to perfection with an accompaniment of vegetables, absolute heaven, this was then followed by the most amazingly delicious deserts, a trio of chocolate puddings which all had their own unique flavour and “moreishness” about them.
A dining experience to remember forever, the food and the surroundings made this a truly wonderful evening.
I would recommend this restaurant to friends.

“Superb place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Beautiful setting and ancient building . I didn't stay as I was passing through but asked to see some rooms. Staff all very helpful and this is clearly a quality hotel with superb gardens and atmosphere. I will stay there next time I am in the area.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

This is a proper castle with loads of history, lends itself well to a classy hotel.
Our room - woodville - was jaw dropping being very much olde world but with all mod cons. Lovely to walk around the castle and grounds and the town of thornbury is only ten minutes away if you are eating out.
Would recommend for a special occasion and would be a brilliant wedding venue.
We got a deal including breakfast and dinner one evening which was good value.
