The Boars Head offers two exceptional dining areas, our contemporary Brasserie setting and our relaxed Bistro and Bar. An exciting ‘Brasserie’ style menu is available in both and offers something for everyone.

Food is incredibly important to us.  We use fresh produce from the Castle Kitchen gardens whenever we can and always focus on using local produce and suppliers to ensure that we source some of the region's finest ingredients.

The menus are inspirational and we believe in serving meals, not sculptures on a plate. There’s always something to tempt you when dining at the Boar’s Head as the menu changes regularly to capture the essence of each season.

Sir Thomas looks after the wine list himself and enthusiastically spends months finding the right wines and making sure he tastes them all!

There are exciting wines to complement each seasonal menu. We also offer a selection of beers from local brewers in cask, keg or bottle and an array of spirits including some fine Island and Highland Malts.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome to accompany their owners into the Bar/Bistro and the Lounge areas of The Boar's Head.

Sundays:   12.00 noon - 8.00pm
