Shetland has abundant fresh, local ingredients, which form part of our rich heritage and culture including fishing and crofting; our menus may occasionally offer dishes that complement themed exhibitions or events in the Museum.

At lunch-time, Hay's Dock offers a wide choice, from sandwiches or baked potatoes to more substantial meals.  The Lunch Menu is served from 12 noon to last orders at 2.30pm.  At other times, you might choose to have tea or coffee, perhaps with a delicious homemade scone or something from our cake counter. 

Evening dining offers a more refined and relaxed ambience.  You can enjoy beautifully-prepared meals from our very flexible Evening Menu which allows you to choose either taster or main-course portions.  You can order a number of the smaller, taster plates - perhaps four to seven between two people, depending upon how hungry you are!  Or you can choose a starter, main course and pudding in the usual way.  We have a good selection of vegan and gluten-free choices and many dishes can be adapted to suit your requirements.

You can enjoy fine wine from our extensive Wine List and our waiting staff will be pleased to suggest something appropriate to accompany your meal. There's a good selection of spirits and liqueurs to round off your meal, too.

We look forward to welcoming you.
