Dining at Dunster Castle Hotel
Your Dining Experience
Dining at Dunster Castle Hotel is a casual yet elegant experience. From Wednesday through to Saturday our menu consists of a small yet perfectly formed menu. Our Head Chef, Amelia Don, incorporates 3 elements in our menu – seasonality, provenance, and innovation. Our menu changes regularly to reflect the ingredients’ optimum flavour, which ensures the dish shines whatever time of the year. Local ingredients are used where possible to showcase the finest ingredients that the West Country has to offer. Where better in the world to try the finest Porlock Oysters, Jaw achingly tasty Cheddar or hand pressed scrumpy! Finally our chef adds the innovation to the mix making sure to surprise and delight the palette.
On Sundays we serve our ever popular Sunday roast (Just like your mother wished she could make!) from 12 midday through to 8-30pm. We serve roasts using the finest local meats and vegetables (at least 7!) with all of the trimmings for £12 and for under 11’s it’s just £6 for a half serving.
Monday night sees our popular pop-up night with Claire’s Kitchen. Each week Claire takes over our kitchen and restaurant showcasing foods from around the world with her themed nights – Mexican, Thai, Mediterranean, & the odd steak night. Please call to book a table if you’re staying with us or even if you’d just like to try Claire’s great value fayre.
Tuesday evening is our fun night. On alternating weeks we have local acoustic artists playing from 7.30pm, as well as a fun quiz on the following Tuesday. Call for details and book a table if you’d like a great value dish on the night for Just £8. Curry, Sweet & Sour, stroganoff, Moroccan lamb tagine etc are served before commencement of the fun from 6.00pm.
In addition, we have a range of fine wines and not forgetting Dunster’s only gin bar with over 100 gins from Exmoor to all around the world.
Service throughout is discreet, knowledgeable and attentive to guarantee your trip to Dunster is a memorable one – from the moment you enter our restaurant to the moment we bid you farewell.
