The
Dungeon Restaurant

Much more than a meal – this a whole experience.

Your evening begins with an aperitif served from a secret bar, hidden behind a moving bookcase in the Library. Then the excitement builds as you descend the stone stairs deep under Dalhousie castle to our dungeon. Once a dark and fearsome place, it’s now a warm, atmospheric dining room where candlelight flickers across the barrel-vaulted ceiling and shining suits of armour. The food is award-winningly good, as Head chef Francois Giraud brings a dash of French sophistication to a menu rich with the finest Scottish produce – earning two AA rosettes for excellence.

Two Courses £42.50 / Three Courses £49.50 Per Person

Please note: we keep this special place for adults only; groups with children under 12 years old are welcome to dine with us in The Orangery.
