Our Royal Cask Whisky Gin Bar features over 1,000 whiskies, 160 gins and a wide selection of wine and local draught ales. We are now open from 5pm, serving food from 6pm-8.30pm

Visitors can choose from local distilleries such as the full range of Highland Park Age Expressions including Highland Park 50 and an extensive Scapa range including the 23 Year Old Cask and 25 Year Old Limited Edition. Other favourites have included the 41 Year Old 1974 Benromach, Dalmore 25 and MacCallan Sherry Oak 25.

Local ales from Orkney Brewery and Swannay Brewery are available on draught or in bottles based on availability and production.

In our child-friendly back bar area, visitors can enjoy a coffee and a chat or a bar supper menu created from fresh local produce. We are now open from 5pm.

Being the last “public bar” in Kirkwall, we were careful to upgrade sympathetically while retaining the traditional feel that is prevalent throughout the 350 year old building. The old “public bar” located off Victoria Street and the guest Lounge Bar at the rear of the hotel have been joined to create easier access whilst maintaining a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere for all.
