Festive Dining

Explore the finery of the festive season below with feasts, afternoon tea, and private dining

Join us for fun and fine dining over the festive season

If you are looking for a truly wonderful place to celebrate with family, friends or work colleagues this festive season, come to Glenapp Castle Hotel, Ayrshire’s hidden five ‘red star’ Victorian treasure.

As you come through the gates it will take almost four minutes to travel up the Glenapp drive passing through the Glen. You will be greeted by our staff at the door and into a place described by many as more of a home than a hotel. The antique furniture, art and fabrics together with the spectacular views across to Ailsa Craig make this a most unique but accessible venue.

Festive Lunch

Beyond the setting, Glenapp Castle is renowned for its ‘world class cuisine’ and service that has a ‘perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness’. Lunches at Glenapp are best taken at leisure and many of the ingredients are sourced from our own gardens and estate with most produce sourced locally. Take a moment and glance at this year’s menu.
