Food and Drink

Dine & drink in our castle restaurant

 

Food has always been an important part of a stay at Augill with the castle restaurant our beating heart. Wendy has been tutored by celebrated Italian chef Giancarlo Caldesi at his restaurant in London and before buying the castle Simon ran a modern British restaurant in London’s Mayfair.

 

Now we have been joined by acclaimed chef Justin Woods who brings his international Michelin-starred experience to the castle to take our food and dining experience to a new level.

 

We’ve completely reinvigorated our dining experience, changed the dining room into a gorgeous new restaurant – no more communal dining (unless you want to, or course) and exciting new menus. The restaurant in open each evening Tuesday to Saturday.

Afternoon tea is served daily, dinner for guests and non-residents is served Tuesday to Saturday with our legendary pizza nights on Sundays.

Afternoon tea

 

Justin joins us from one of the Lake District’s top hotels, having started his career in Switzerland, he cut his culinary teeth under John Burton-Race at the two Michelin starred L’Ortolan restaurant in Berkshire and then worked up from commis to executing sous chef at The Lanesborough Hotel on London’s Hyde Park Corner. He lives locally with his family and is passionate about creating an authentic sense of place with his food

His philosophy is simple:

 

“Let’s look at more local farmers and producers and really see what amazing things we can find in the Eden Valley and surrounding area – the best quality food, cooked simply in the friendliest atmosphere”

 

It’s what we’ve always striven to do at Augill, only now it’s better
