Nice food and friendly waiters but horribly cold. Toilet is a traditional lavatory in the sense it resembles an outhouse and not in a good way. Seemingly no concept of customer service. After telling staff it was cold, it got a lot colder when the heating was turned off and 3 separate sets of doors were deliberately wedged back so... More

First time at the castle inn and had heard good things. Overall the whole thing was a disappointment. Food was nothing more than average pub grub which was a shame as the prices are that bit more than your average pub. The place was freezing from the moment we walked in yet apparently the heating was on full. Seemed odd... More

A lot is written about the 'English Breakfast' but in my experience a good Scottish Breakfast takes some beating and sadly the breakfast at the Castle Inn was not good. The choice of juices and cereals was limited but I was saving myself for the cooked breakfast. I ordered bacon grilled tomato poached egg and tattie scones. The latter is... More

We had a very enjoyable evening meal in the pub/ restaurant of this small hotel. Food was excellent with generous portions. Atmosphere relaxed and is obviously very popular as the restaurant was getting really busy. The location in Dirleton is opposite the ancient castle and makes for very interesting and picturesque surroundings. North Berwick is a few miles from the... More

This inn is based on a large green, the surroundings are lovely but there is not much else going on in direction so you need to head to north Berwick for bars and restaurants. As a result, this place seems to be pretty busy at meal times, but it is a little dark and old in the bar/restaurant. Going in... More

Came here for lunch with some friends after a visit to the castle opposite. Really liked this place. Good selection of dishes, good quality, decent portion sizes. Pleasant, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. You could easily spend a very nice evening here. Bonus is that they admit dogs, which is always a plus. If you're in the area, this is a... More

We were encouraged to try this inn/restaurant by friends who live locally, & a lunch and a dinner later we can strongly recommend this pub on the green in Dirleton. The menu was excellent, well presented, and delicious. The service was prompt, friendly, and efficient. The bar has sport on the screen but unobtrusively. Calmer and less loud than the... More

A most successful first visit to the Castle Inn on the recommendation of several friends. Imaginative menu, delicious food, mostly locally sourced, friendly and relaxed service (despite the fact the place was busy) and good disabled facilities in the bar/bistro. It was a happy visit and a great way to start 2014.

I was at the Castle Inn yesterday (19th October 2013) with the rest of my family to celebrate my Mother and Father's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I can't praise the venue for everything, they were helpful, pleasant and to top it off the food standard was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone. The selection of the menu was... More

Luckily we had booked for lunch as this place was very busy,we were attended too quickly and pleasantly,order was taken and the food was really nice,the staff cleared up as soon as a table became vacant. If there was a fault we felt we were rushed out at 2.30 though we don't think the place closed.
