A great dining experience - whatever the occasion

There’s a certain unique thrill to be had whilst relishing a fabulously cooked dinner in an intimate restaurant in a medieval castle, not to mention a tingle that comes from morning coffee, a snack or an afternoon tea beneath our shimmering drawing room chandeliers. With relaxed dining also available, there’s plenty to whet the appetite. Just read our menus to find out more, being aware that seasonality and the produce we can source, may slightly change the dishes available.

We strive to keep the menus as up to date as possible, however due to seasonality and availability of produce, some items may change without notice.


Those with a passion for a dining ‘experience’, as well as first-class food, love to explore our restaurant, judged one of the finest in the North East, boasting a 2AA Rosette and welcoming both residents and non-residents alike. Feasts for the eyes and the palette are served from 6.30pm, using the finest, freshest produce available to our chefs, with dining taking place after you have enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in our atmospheric drawing room, whilst deciding on your menu choices.

Drawing Room

The drawing room is one of the most mesmerising parts of our authentic English castle and a delight for the eyes, whether you focus on our gorgeous stained-glass windows, our knights in shining armour or our roaring log fire in winter. It is a perfect place for relaxed dining, snacks, morning coffees and afternoon teas, welcoming residents and non-residents alike.

The Glass Pavilion

The Glass Pavilion offers that delight that comes from finding something unexpected – a contemporary glass, private-dining venue for up to 30 people, attached to the main castle building, surrounded by its own mini-moat and shaded by glorious woodland into which squirrels hop in and out and where autumnal colours stun.

Stepping from the medieval into the 21st century always creates a buzz, whether you are staging a business meeting, private dinner or party, baby shower, end-of-life celebration or something else entirely.

Afternoon Tea

There’s something very British about afternoon tea and there’s nowhere better to enjoy it than at what is, arguably, England’s most authentic fortified castle hotel. Way below Langley Castle’s lofty battlements, you can enjoy a feast of your choosing, whether you plump for a traditional cream tea, with scones, cream and jam, a larger affair of a full afternoon tea with both savoury and sweet delights, or our tasty Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea – a Langley Castle special, complete with temptations such as quiche, pork pie and sausage roll!
