About

Nestled amongst the opulent ground floor rooms of Lews Castle, the Storehouse Café is the ideal spot to take in the grandeur of your surroundings during your visit. Designed to showcase the incredible vertical views of the turrets, the glass ceiling of the restaurant allows light to flood the spacious room and makes for an incredibly enjoyable dining experience.

Proudly serving delicious Starbucks drinks and with a variety of home-baked treats on offer, enjoy a well-deserved coffee break as you ponder the history of the grounds. For a more substantial meal, the Café offers a menu stuffed with mouth-watering, locally-sourced dishes such as the Salmon Taster Board or Scotsman’s Platter, alongside freshly-toasted paninis and healthy specials for lunches with friends.

For young explorers, there is plenty to choose from on the well-stocked Kids Menu, including the ‘Kings Dark Dungeon Treat’ or the ‘Knights of the Round Table Pizza’, or why not try the ‘Castle Lunch Box’ where your little ones can pick & mix their own snacks?

Whether searching for a new spot to catch up with loved ones, a unique location for a delicious lunch, or a pit-stop for a warming drink, Lews Castle has something for all.

      Really enjoyed the videos of people taking about island life and it's not the edge of the earth - but the very centre. Chessmen also impressive. Read full review

      Only limited parts of the castle are open to the public and only if there are no private functions on at the time of your visit. Fortunately for us there were no engagements at the time of our visit... Read full review
