genuine, great service from the lovely staff, delicious food (especially the mushrooms with breakfast), kitkat and club biscuits with the tea bags!

The Castle is everything you might want from a provincial town inn (with bathrobes thrown in for additional ease of hanging out). can't fault it.

Called in some time ago to book B&B but unfortunately, the,e stairs were to steep for us to climb as it is such an old building. The proprietor did her best to find something for us by phoning around to other B&B in the area.
A real shame as the I loved the atmosphere of the place.
While there we treated ourselves to a light lunch. Perfect.

We chose the Castle Inn because it's about halfway between our house and that of the friends we wanted to lunch with. There were one or two other options but none sounded that tempting, and the good reviews of the Castle persuaded us. They turned out to be absolutely spot-on. We know Bungay well but as it was our school-run destination, we'd never been to that pub. More fool us. Parking was easy (just as well - Bungay isn't awash with free parking) and we entered to a charming welcome. The dining room looked inviting but it was a lovely day so we sat outside - very comfortable with a HUGE leafy tree for shade, and nice pots of herbs on each table. We were given instant drinks & menus plus sight of the specials board, and from there on in we simply couldn't have faulted it. If I was to list the delights in order, the most outstanding feature was definitely the staff. We encountered two young employees, both of whom looked after us brilliantly. They really were extraordinarily astute - service was absolutely top class and done with enormous charm while being unobtrusively efficient. We all noticed. And then there was the food - EVERY course was quite delicious - a chilli beef starter was a huge success, mackerel salad ditto and although I wondered if my husband's Caesar salad might have been a bit dull compared with everything else, he said the chicken was cooked to perfection, which in that dish is surprisingly rare. As for the belly pork or ribs or whatever they were - they were demolished in minutes and were, apparently, to die for. We hope he didn't - but if he did, he most certainly will have died happy.....This was such a lovely place to come and we'll most certainly be back. Our sincere thanks to all concerned.

Room Tip: We only lunched here so I can't comment on the rooms.

Stayed here for one night. Lovely food in attractive dining room. The bedroom was a good size, nicely decorated and with a sofa in the corner by the fireplace. Service at breakfast slow which was frustrating as we wanted to be on our way. Toast did not arrive until right at the end of the meal.
