The Castle Inn is the quintessential English pub. It's not overdone to look like some fancy bistro that wants to pretend it's a pub. It's a pub that happens to serve some of the finest desserts I've ever had the pleasure of eating. We ate there twice over a period of three days and each meal was better than the... More

The Castle serves an extensive menu of freshly cooked dishes. Not only is the food delicious but the welcome is extremely warm and friendly. It is very popular with locals and visitors and no wonder!

We dropped in by chance on a trip to Corfe last Christmas, the food was very good, and the atmosphere was wonderful. Very friendly staff and great atmosphere.

We found this pub after a long walk and after being made very welcome, enjoyed lovely homemade pies. Beer was good too (Doom Bar), and there was a baby duck in the garden, which our girls loved visiting (plus a fine selection of plastic dinosaurs and kids books to keep the little ones entertained). They don't seem to take bookings,... More

This pub is almost wholly a food restaurant, with a small bar and only two bar stools. There is a specials board with the fresh fish on offer.

Great 'local' atmosphere on our visit and we were seated without booking. Really good pub food and good value. My wife enjoyed the fish pie, my gammon steak was lovely and thick and our son devoured a chicken burger with a whole large chicken breast inside. We visited on a Monday night and it was busy but managed to get... More

Turned up, Easter Saturday evening to find it busy. To be expected. Extremely warm welcome, and given a 45 min expected wait. 35 mins later seated. Menu isn't vast, but because of that, the food is EXCELLENT!! Really lovely atmosphere, friendly helpful staff, especially Abi, our server, only too willing to help. If you're in the area, want fantastic food,... More

I visited the Castle Inn with my husband and two children on my birthday and was not disappointed! Although we had about half hour wait for food it was well worth it! My son and I enjoyed a jacket potato with Prawn in Marie Rose dressing. It was garnished with a delicious salad and we would highly recommend. My daughter... More
