We only had a meal here as we are from the local area but we had heard from people that it was excellent so we thought it was time to try it. What a wonderful meal we had. Prices were very reasonable and th service by everyone was outstanding! The view from our table was stunning and we watched the... More

Stayed and ate here so experienced both sides of the place, we weren't disappointed by either! We were shown to our room and looked after in the restaurant by Mark who couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating. The room was clean, bright, and with plenty of tea and coffee facilities. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was well stocked.... More

My Godfather brought me here to celebrate my birthday and it was indeed a lovely idea. "The Castle" as he explained to me is in a very historic area with a wonderful history and he has known the place for many years. He was pleased to show us the changes made to cover in the former terrace, and made into... More

We ate at "The Castle" for Sunday lunch, as we've been going there intermittently for over forty years, and have witnessed its many incarnations from rough local "biker" pub, through pub grub eatery and now it has pretensions to become an upmarket restaurant, with prices to match. It has been completely remodeled ,the open balcony ( smokers haven ) is... More

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...

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...
