So quaint on the outside but what a disappointment! We visited in the evening for a meal but the food was very overpriced and poor quality. Bar area was uninviting and felt grubby. Would not go there again.

This inn is very dog friendly (dogs are even treated to a sausage at breakfast-time). The quiz master last Wednesday evening was great fun, very entertaining, professional and witty. He made us feel welcome and special as he very cleverly did to all. The above are the two reasons I am not rating the Castle Inn as 'terrible'. On arrival... More

Really cozy friendly traditional English Inn. Only spent one night here, took Hamish our Scottie dog and he loved it. The whole place is dog friendly and he was even treated to sausages at breakfast. The quiz was fun but did seem to run a bit to long. Dinner was tasty and well cooked. Our room was small but cozy,... More

We stayed at the Inn for four nights. We were given a room at the back of the cottage, no 3. We had a bedroom, separate bathroom and a corridor area with a door to the outside yard. There was plenty of room for us and the dog. The room was checked daily and the bedding was clean, towels were... More

Can honestly say this must be the worst place I've stayed in. Have been a dog owner for 11 years and stayed in many doggy friendly places and all have been more than adequate, so no excuses. Having arrived and been given key to the shoe-box size room with dirty pillow slips, cobwebs, spiders in every corner of ceiling, no... More

Although the weather was atrocious we give top marks to The Castle Inn and its staff - great food, great atmosphere, very friendly staff and the icing on the cake was that our dogs were welcomed as warmly as us - even on such a water logged day !

I have mixed feelings about our stay at this place. I thought it was very welcoming and friendly, I like the quirkiness of the bar area,the games lying around etc. My husband liked the beer. We brought our dog, and it's a perfect dog friendly place. However: the room was rather small, didnt even have a chair. Clean enough though.... More

The location of this place was perfect... It was very very dog friendly, with dog treats on the bar and sausage for them at breakfast .. But for us not so good. The room was v small, damp and not very clean. Breakfast was good and bar meals ok. Loved all the different ciders that you could taste. Staff friendly... More
