Dunbar House proudly serves a fine selection of British ales and European wines, ports and sherries. Our  cozy and intimate atmosphere is world renowned for providing the perfect setting to catch up with an old friend or to meet a new one. We have a reputation for being a place where memories are made.

The Restaurant and Tea Room were at one time the carriage house to the main house, circa 1740. The original the tea room sits in an old wood paneled billiard and gentlemen’s smoking room. Now it is home to the clinking of tea cups rather than billiard balls and the aromas of baking pies, cakes, shortbreads and scones rather than pipe smoke. Both the original tea room and the new dining room have fireplaces that we stoke up for the winter.

At Dunbar House you'll enjoy the warmth of the fireplace in the winter, and cool breezes in the warmer months indoors or outside on our patio surrounded by gardens.
