We booked for 1900 ( opens at 1830). An enchanting location for a restaurant in a castle on a Cornish Hill. Greeted at the door by our waitress for the evening we were shown up the stairs to the banqueting area. Wonderful views could be had from our table. The menu is varied and enticing. We opted for the set... More

We hired it for a birthday party. Excellent, lovely food brilliant very unusual location. It is very rustic if you like being pampered maybe not for you but if you love anything unusual this is the spot. They cooked all the food put it out on the tables and then left us with the keys to enjoy the evening and... More

This atmospheric castle is a gem. It's a bumpy ride up the Carn Brea but when you arrive it is magic. Watching the sun set with amazing views and gorgeous food is just fabulous.

Have been visiting for years and the food has always been great. Used to always have the Carn Brea Special Steak, preceded by the Special Soup!!!!!! However now sometimes I have Lamb kebab or chicken dishes as well. I am not in the habit due to working time constraints of reviewing a place more than Once unless with a good... More

You approach what looks like a castle and park outside. Entry is by knocking on a door within a porch. You're led past a roaring fire up a couple of flights of stairs to wooden tables in what is just like a castle, lit everywhere by candies. There is plenty of room inside between the stone pillars and you can... More

Delightful, unusual, charming restaurant.set in and old folly in-top of windy Carnbrae. A one off, lit by candles and fairy lights to make a cosy and romantic setting. Menu limited, but good. Has always been busy in our visits. Access difficult along a very potholed road and no disabled access. Steep stone steps inside.

The Carn Brea Castle is an old 18th century hunting lodge in a castle style situated on top of Carn Brea near Redruth in Cornwall. It is right on top of the highest point in the district and commands outstanding views of the local countryside. You will have to google the restaurant on line for directions or else you would...

This place is a genuine old castle with a restaurant at the top of Carn Brea. Good for special occasions.

This is a difficult place to describe but I really do recommend going. The location is unique, we drove up on a wet dark night and the castle felt totally isolated a sense only heightened by the fact the door to the restaurant is locked on arrival. Once inside everything was lit by candlelight and by the end of our... More

A bit of a hike up muddy paths (it was March) but great view and wild countryside with lots of mining heritage nearby.
