The hotel is in the centre of the delightful town of Bungay. We had a pleasant welcome on arrival, and were shown to the characterful Mettingham room for our one night stay. It is an old building and the floors are a bit sloped and the stairs up to the rooms are very steep. The room is full of character,... More

This was our 1st stay in Bungay. What a little gem. The Castle Inn is excellent and the staff very accommodating, especially Jenny. We originally tried to book 2 nights, but they only had a room for 1 night; we booked and asked them to let us know if a 2nd night should become available - which Tanya did. The... More

I ate here around Feb 2014. Having eaten off the December set menu I was expecting good things as I had a very good meal in December 13. I ordered the lamb along with my girlfriend, presuming this would be similar to my meal in December. It was not, it was very plain, served on top of some mash &... More

This was our second stay attending a family wedding in the Town. If you want a real Inn, with first class food and service near Bungay this is the place to stay. We had dinner on our first night from the new menu and it was exceptional; breakfast on both mornings was first class and they were very happy to... More

A very warm greeting on arrival and an excellent bedroom. Our room was Caister. It was spotless with excellent bathroom. Our breakfast was top class and local produce was used. Our only regret is that we only stayed one night. WE SHALL RETURN FOR LONGER! Gerald and Joan Wilson

We stayed at the Castle the other night, after meeting friends there for supper - delightful all round. The food was delicious - good local stuff, well cooked and nicely presented. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with tea, coffee hot choc facilities, TV etc. The staff were extremely pleasant and efficient; I think the helpful man we dealt... More

We visited the Castle Inn restaurant in Bungay for an evening meal over their Christmas market weekend and had a super meal. A very nice seasonal menu using lots of local produce. We would highly recommend the Terrine to start, lamb for main and the very naughty but nice chocolate torte for dessert....one of the best I've ever had. And... More

What a great find. We visit family in the area and as they have no spare rooms we try different places to stay - and The Castle Inn is a gem. We arrived later than planned and we were given a really warm welcome; the staff had been worried if we were OK. We were shown to our room which... More

We booked the hotel just for one night as we were visiting friends. Unfortunately we ended up running very late and I phoned to ask if the chef could perhaps make us a sandwich for when we arrived and this was agreed. When we eventually arrived the chef was still in the kitchen (finishing off desserts) but offered to cook... More
