Indulge in Fine Dining Italian style

Dining at Philipburn House Hotel is an unforgettable experience. From New Year 2024 it has been decided to ring the changes an introduce an Italian menu with fully authentic Italian cuisine, not “British-Italian” cuisine with a range of options to suit every taste and occasion. Whether you’re looking for a house “nibble” to eat in Bar 1751 or a leisurely, three-course meal or a tasting menu, our chefs use only the freshest and finest ingredients to create unforgettable culinary experiences.

We say “fresh food, not fast food”. Take your time and enjoy good food and wine.

Please call The Three Cairns on 01750 720747 to make a reservation.  We always have tables for residents so please call direct. “Walk ins” are welcome but we recommend booking in advance so we can be prepared for you.

Our pizzas are also available to take away.


Freshness at its finest at All Seasons Philipburn!

Using the best ingredients really does make a difference. We believe that using the freshest & finest ingredients is essential to creating delicious and unforgettable culinary experiences. We also like to source our ingredients from local producers where possible, ensuring we use the best produce available.

By using locally sourced ingredients, we are not only able to ensure that our dishes are of excellent quality, but we are also supporting the local community and reducing our carbon footprint.

The range of drinks made world-wide today is vast and of course it is impossible to carry everything. However we do believe that customers want variety and our drinks list is on the increase all the time with new items, especially wines. Our house wines at £19.95 for a bottle and servable by the glass are really excellent value for money – and all checked by the management!
