Dinner at Temple House is especially fun. Gather in the Morning Room for pre-dinner drinks, select a bottle of wine and meet your fellow guests. Dress is smart casual. It’s 55 euro for 3 courses followed by home made fudge and coffee by the fire in the morning room.
You will be seated together at a large mahogany table complete with crystal glass, family silver and portraits in attendance. Roderick and Helena are on hand to give an insight into the extraordinary history of their magnificent home. Be sure to note the red tear on the large portrait of Jane.
Please book dinner on your first evening in advance during the reservation process online by phone or email. We gather at 7, or sooner if the G&T beckons, and sit down at 7.30pm. Our ambition is to offer dinner at least every second evening; Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Menus are seasonal and vary each day – this is a sample
We take great care to source our ingredients as locally as possible, often mere metres from the dining room. We offer a set menu but are always pleased to cater for dietary requirements with advance notice.
