We ate here last Friday for lunch. On arrival we were warmly greeted and offered a choice of areas to sit in, we chose the bar. Great looking lunch menu one of us had the fish and chips the other was bubble and squeak. Beautiful presentation but both dishes were bland. The bubble and squeak in particular, no flavour at...

This pub has deteriorated significantly since the refurbishment under the present owners. The bar covers up an historic wall painting and lacks the atmosphere that was present previously with its former large open fire. Prices of drinks and food have risen sharply under the current owners. Portion sizes of the overpriced food are small and mean. The salad is a... More

Called in on-spec at end of lunch time, asked if meals were still being served - no problem was the friendly response. Looking around, there were several people, some with children, spread through the rooms and the wonderful garden - yes the sun was shining in early April. Service was prompt, friendly and with a smile. Food was great, simple... More

If you want popularity then be prepare for it! and get extra staff - sunny bank holiday - food took AGES to arrive - a gas problem in the kitchen which has happened before (according to the stressed waitress) led to delays and us to knaw our boots - but this was a bank holiday Monday and I guess allowances...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and for your very fair and constructive comments and rating. We had the worst possible bank holiday Monday with our gas supply going down during the middle of service - we did our best to provide food to as many customers as we could relying heavily on the outdoor...

Called in at the Castle after a Sunday morning walk, and have to admit to being very pleasantly surprised. We used to come here quite a bit in the past and the food was never great, although the views made up for it, we hadn't been for well over a year and turned up on Sunday expecting more of the...

Great team with a very welcoming atmosphere. Good range of beer and the food is excellent quality. Rooms in the tower are quirky clean, bright with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. If you want a great overnight with fantastic food, and very attentive service, you will not go wrong at the castle

Our stay at the Castle at Edgehill was one of the Highlights of our vacation, and by far my wife's favorite place that we stayed. This was my first trip to England, and I had made a few mistakes. The car I rented was a manual without GPS. I finally got used to shifting with the wrong hand, but I... More

We had a fantastic 3 nights at the castle with our 17-month old baby. The room was very comfortable and clean with flapjacks and proper coffee greatly appreciated. The choice of breakfast was great and delicious with more than enough to share with a hungry toddler. Staff were attentive and friendly and, although we didn't get chance to relax in... More

First visit to the castle under new management. Looks fantastic and lovely atmosphere to dine in or enjoy a casual drink whilst our dog walking. Had lunch and food was simply fantastic. Took my fiancee for lunch on Valentine's and was also able to have flowers arranged for the table through Hibiscus which were beautiful and a very nice touch.... More
