There was a hirsute man as we entered, who ushered us to our seats without pomp or ceremony, having better things to do. As we left, one of our party had the decency to thank him, and he merely sniffed and rose his eyebrows. In fairness, perhaps he was deaf of merely stupid. The food was very good. The chips... More

Top notch food and friendly staff. 6 of us went, beer was good too. This place is famous for its food and rightly so. Beautiful pub in a beautiful area.

We chose The Castle after seeing positive reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is what you'd expect from a country pub/restaurant and it hasn't been modernised like a lot of other places (which is a good thing!) so still retains it's real character.

The Castle's food has been consistently good until our visit this week, I ordered fish and chips and they have changed the fries to skin on and they were heavy and no where near as good as before. I should have mentioned this during our visit but just wanted to head home :(

This quaint pub is in a picturesque village location nestled between an historic bowling green and a very pretty church. The road between these can be a little busy at times but otherwise the seating outside would be perfect on a warm day. Some of these tables are directly adjacent to the bowling green and so could be the perfect... More

This time I have to say it wasn´t that great as usual ... food wise, I know I know everyone has a different taste ... First, always nice and friendly Staff! We went there for dinner and ordered a Burger and a Rib Eye Steak. Hmm, I don´t know I just had the feeling it wasn´t made with passion. The... More

We visited on a Saturday evening for a pre Mother's Day family meal. Fantastically friendly welcome, traditional decor in beautiful surroundings. Food - what can I say, other than amazing! The Shepherds Pie was the best I've ever had, the ribs were out of this world and the cheese board was fabulous, the creme brûlée was absolutely delicious. Staff were... More

My husband and I had a lovely two course meal here. The food was delicious and although not the cheapest place, I do feel it was worth the money. The service was excellent and the setting is also very nice.

I believe the Castle Inn has been under new management for about the last six months and is gaining a strong local reputation for its restaurant.
