Relaxed Bistro Dining at
The Orangery

In contrast to the atmospheric mystery of our Dungeon Restaurant, the Orangery is a bright, airy place to eat, drink and relax, its huge windows giving a fine view of the South Esk river and the rolling Scottish skies overhead. Family-friendly and informal, this bistro-style restaurant offers a modern mix of Scottish and European cuisine with plenty of family favourites to keep everyone happy, whether you’re here for a hearty breakfast, laid-back lunch, afternoon tea with Champagne, or dinner as dusk settles across the castle estate.
