One of the must do things when I go to Scotland is to have dinner in the Dungeon at Dalhousie Castle. I have done it about 7-8 times and whenever I take someone new they always rave about it. The menu changes constantly, so I...More

Only one vegetarian option. Pleasant enough food but not special enough to merit the great to-do made about it, with guests having to wait around half an hour in the frequently smoke-filled library bar before being shown down.

This is a lovely restaurant in a stunning location within the dungeon. There were several pieces of large armory which were in very good condition and with lovely brick work.

The Dungeon Restaurant and Orangery • The Dungeon Restaurant Dining at the Castle is a unique experience. The ancient barrel-vaulted dungeons provide an unusual setting to enjoy the fine, traditional Scottish and classical French castle cuisine, from fresh local produce. For example; Salmon, Venison and Grouse are complemented by an interesting selection of wines and an unrivalled quality of friendly and professional service. Private parties for up to 22 guests can be catered for in the gate side of the Dungeon Restaurant. Reservations are advised to avoid disappointment. • The Orangery A more relaxed alternative to the unique barrel vaulted Dungeon Restaurant, the Orangery overlooks the meandering South Esk River and tranquil scenic parkland. The eclectic style decor makes an enchanting dining experience, complemented by a contemporary Scottish and European menu, with healthy and light options available for Aqueous Spa guests. The Orangery is the ideal place to rest, replenish and unwind. • Scottish Banquets Scottish Banquets are held at Dalhousie Castle in the traditional style with crystal, candelabrums and silver. The evening starts with a welcome from the Piper, pre-dinner drinks are then served. The Banquet commences and the Piper addresses the Haggis with Robert Burn's famous "Ode to the Haggis". The Piper also plays for the two Scottish Highland Dancers dancing traditional Highland Jigs.
