We hate to call it a rule, but our guests do dress to the nines. Please wear something glamorous and something that makes your visit special. Black tie and evening dress are absolutely de rigeur for all guests in the Grand Ballroom. If you prefer a less formal evening, please ask to dine in our Captain’s Cabin or The Nettlefold Restaurant, where the dress code is smart but not black tie. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year we have live music from one of our house bands. You are invited, but not compelled, to venture onto the Grand Ballroom dance floor and enjoy some romance on our outside dance floor, under the stars.
We change the menu seasonally, using only the finest in local produce. As a resident your booking at Burgh Island includes canapes, a three-course menu and coffee plus petits fours.
This is the place to visit pre- and post-dinner to enjoy some fizz, a cocktail or a selection of other beverages. Our wine list has been lovingly prepared and features a wide selection to accompany your dining experience.
Served until 5pm for residents of the hotel and visitors. Enjoy a light lunch in the Palm Court Bar or the Ganges Restaurant, or on the terrace, soaking up the spectacular views.
Built in 1336, The Pilchard Inn has been quenching the island’s thirst for over 700 years. The Inn first served the fishermen who lived on the Island and mainland shores; then the smugglers and wreckers who lured ships onto the Western rocks; and now hotel guests and the public. There is nowhere better to sit in front of a roaring fire and watch the tides ‘meet’ and ‘part’ while nursing a pint and a fresh crab baguette. On Friday nights The Pilchard hosts a popular curry night, with fresh and spicy curries made in the Hotel kitchen. The Pilchard Cafe downstairs is a new addition to the Pilchard Inn offering an all-day menu.
A lovely private dining space for small parties, guests are welcome to enjoy the menu from our Ballroom in a more relaxed and informal setting. If you prefer a less formal evening, please ask to dine in our Captain’s Cabin or Ganges Restaurant, where the dress code is smart but not black tie.
