Also thanks to staff Jane and Carl. Booked in for a meal the next day and although not on the menu the chef agreed to get... More

The pub has a public car park opposite which is free with a public toilet facility, the hotel itself is hundreds of years old and full of character, downstairs public areas have low ceiling wooden beams and flagstone floors, to add to the lovely old English feeling there are numerous horse brasses and copper kettles etc in the dining room...

Called in for a drink and lunch after visiting Lydford Gorge. Very friendly service and great food. The order was taken incorrectly but swiftly rectified and was superb value. Loved the atmosphere and feel of the place. Was exactly what you would want an old Devon country pub to be.

We ate here this evening - the food and service were wonderful. We'd highly recommend this pub; it has a lovely, warm and welcoming atmosphere and the food is plentiful and tasty. The waitress was just lovely.... very professional, friendly and she made us laugh! Thank you for a memorable evening.

After visiting Lydford Gorge we popped in to the Castle Inn for lunch, the staff was very friendly, the atmosphere was great but better than that....the Chicken Madras Curry was so delicious we actually went back 2 days later for another round! Thanks to the chef.

Many years ago, after a walk around Lydford Gorge, I popped into this pub for a welcoming pint. We needed a overnight stop-over on our way to Cornwall and I remembered this quaint hostelry and booked in. I am so glad I remembered this pub. We arrived early, giving us time for a few drinks in their wonderful garden. A... More

Just returned from a holiday in the area and had a few meals here. All were great, generous portions and the staff were really good. We particularly have to say that Mo is an absolute asset to the Inn and a great character!
