We stayed for one night. Very welcoming staff, a very cosy and comfortable bar and restaurant and extremely good pub food. Rooms are clean and tidy but a bit tired - otherwise it would have got five stars.

After a very enjoyable afternoon at Lydford Gorge, a group of us left after the facilities had closed and needed refreshments and toilets! We ended up in the 'snug', 11 in the group + two dogs and received great hospitality, we ended up staying for a meal which was superb! All hot and arrived promptly with a smile, cannot fault...

Very friendly and efficient staff. Wonderful food both for breakfast and evening meal. Service was excellent and was made to feel very welcome. Quite a lot of flies in the restaurant and obviously being an old place do not expect the Ritz. After talking with the owner on our check-out, she acknowledged most of our issues before being pointed out... More

We spent one night at the Castle and wished it could've been longer. The room was very clean and comfortable. Food was very good and beer well kept. Staff were helpful and approachable. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

Me and my best friend visited The Castle Inn recently & it was superb! I must admit I'm very fussy so the chef kindly took the peas off my meal! I had the Sausage & Mash while my bfriend had the Devon Beef & ale pie! Both meals were served promptly by the lovely front of house team. The pie... More

The bar was dark, dingy and unwelcoming, old buildings needn't be dirty to be full of character. This one felt in need of a clean. My beer did not seem to be well kept. Our meal was ordinary at best and the waiting staff, whilst willing, could do with much more training. There are far better venues in the area,... More

Room 5 sadly suffered from being front facing and also early morning noise from downstairs, insulation between pub and accommodation very poor. But the pub was old so that could be forgiven; the flies, cobwebs and dust could not. Also the carpet leading up to the bedrooms was absolutely filthy. We kept our clothes in suitcase as we just didn't... More

I booked 2 double rooms for 1 night for us and another couple - we arrived late afternoon and were shown to our rooms which were 'tatty' and quite small (3&7) - there were cobwebs on the ceiling and beams, and clothes had been left in the wardrobe from the previous guests. We went into the garden to relax before... More

Stayed here for one night, the accommodation was great. The bed was very comfortable, with a large family room with walk in shower and decking overlooking the beer garden and castle. The food was exceptionally good with a wide choice of dishes and the chef was more than happy to accommodate a gluten free diet. Good choice of beers both... More
