This pub is just beautiful, its a must if you are in the local area. The cider was one of the best we have ever had, the food I had was just OK - everyone else was pleased with their choice though. Recommended.

This was our second visit to the Castle Inn (the first time being a few years ago when my husband and I had a really enjoyable meal). This time, to be fair, we were a group of seven who turned up without booking on a Friday night looking for food, and certainly we had tried three other places before this... More

We went to the castle for the cider festival which was good. The sampler trays are a really good idea. The festival is all year round so not really a festival! The food was nothing special with limited choice . Seemed to be alot of staff doing nothing. I would recommend for the drinks but not the food.

Along with lots of engineers, using this military area, while being involved in things militaires, we all enjoyed being able to relax and enjoy the odd beer and good steak! Very obliging staff , all of whom were only too aware of the the necessity for meals on time, and being able to park some lively motor cars at the... More

Booked three nights with my girlfriend and two dogs after visiting the pub three years ago. The location is superb and the outside of the building looks charming, but inside it is dirty, cramped and dated. I think this is why it is marketed for dog owners. They do give dogs poor quality sausage at breakfast, but there is no... More

The Castle Inn is a cute country cottage, run as a pub and a hotel. The decor is traditional but to be honest, the rooms are dated and could do with a lot of care. We stayed in room 11, which had an en-suite bathroom with a shower. The shower had very little power and was more of a dribble!... More

Staff were very accommodating when we booked, as they were busy they couldn't book is into the same room for two consecutive nights but would change rooms and do the move for us. It's location is good and we parked opposite as parking can be a bit tough at this pub. Our stay in a room for the first night... More

Very good for your dog but the staff are not friendly not even a good morning at breakfast, the food is average as pub grub goes and the rooms could do with quite a bit of TLC. This is the second time we have stayed there the first time was very good but all the staff have changed and made... More

I had the chicken curry bap, very good and flavorful. my husband had the chili con carne bap, it was also very flavorful but also very spicy so be careful! Great cider with a variety to choose from. Parking is... More

Stayedchere for 3 nights. All in all not a bad place to visit stay with our dog as very dog friendly and very busy the 3 nights. Breakfast very good including a bowl of sausage for the dog. In the pub there is too much emphasis on Cider. As much as I like cider the whole bar area was just... More
