Our Royal Cask Whisky Gin Bar features over 1,000 whiskies, 160 gins and a wide selection of wine and local draught ales.


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.

Draft ale which changes weekly, includes selections from both the local Orkney Brewery and Swannay Brewery.

In our child-friendly back bar area, visitors can enjoy a coffee and a chat or choose from our new lunch menu or bar supper menu created from fresh local produce.

Renovations in the back bar area were unveiled in the autumn 2016. 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.
