Eat & Drink
Dining at Augill is a unique experience. We are not a restaurant and dining here is best described as going to a dinner party with friends you haven’t yet met. We don’t serve dinner every night.
The dining room is at the heart of the castle and it’s an invitation to be part of an authentic country castle experience for breakfast, afternoon tea and supper. It’s friendly, informal and sociable. Is Augill right for you?
“Eating here is a social occasion” – Red Magazine
No whispering over the consommé or hushed separate tables here
- On Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year and on selected week nights during school holidays we host our legendary dinner parties – a fixed menu (usually a choice of two dishes at each course) for all our guests to enjoy together at our long dining tables with alternative choices and earlier meal times for children if required.
- Dinner (at which all ages are welcome) is usually served at 7.30 and children’s supper at six if you prefer them to eat earlier or separately.
- During the week (Sunday to Thursday) we serve traditional afternoon tea and delicious sharing platters to enjoy wherever you like – in the company of fellow guests in the dining room or by yourself in a quiet corner, beside a fire or outside.
- It’s all as moveable a feast as we can make it so please get in touch if you have specific queries about evening meals.
Dinner £30 three courses, £25 for two – Children’s supper £10 – Sharing platters £15 per person
Enjoy our food with other guests at one of our huge oak tables in the Dining Room as many guests have done for nearly twenty years. Many new friendships have been forged over dinner here. We’re not big enough for a chef or kitchen brigade and do all the cooking ourselves so advance booking for all our food is required – you’ll get details of how to do this when you book your room.
If there are six or more of you, the Drawing Room is the perfect private dining space for a bespoke and truly unique dining experience and great if you’re not staying with us.

Our food changes with the seasons. In Summer we serve simple, easy, fresh sharing platters and lighter dishes, then more wholesome, hearty food as the nights get longer – always the perfect accompaniment to a drink from our Great British Bar and always with the same focus on the best ingredients cooked simply and without fuss. We always have dishes available for younger children and an open door policy in the kitchen.
