As a couple this hidden away retreat was a very special place that was until our visit this summer, to find new owners was a surprise but more than happy to stay was so disappointed, the service was none existent & the new owner very agitated & aggressive which on reflection can only be down to our food being taken...

I was taking my other half visiting from USA to the castle as they dont have them in USA ! We got there mid morning and needed coffee. It was a Sat but quite quiet. WE looked at the menu and decided that coffee and a cake was for now and after we'd been around the castle we would be... More

We were a party of 9 that decided on an impromptu visit for a quick cream tea in the early afternoon. Weather was pretty miserable, so we chose to visit the Castle Cafe, and glad we did! It was pretty quiet in there (probably due to the weather), and after browsing the menu, we all decided to have a light... More

Despite the sign at the entrance saying the cafe was open, when we arrived we were told that it wasn't open for another 30 mins, not even for a cup of coffee! When suggesting that wasn't great service, it was suggested that next time we ring first!! There won't be a next time.

Have just been with my mum and 85yr old grandma, as it's grams favourite place and have had numerous family get together here as the older couple were amazingly friendly. Today we were told by some dark haired unfriendly man, that unless we put our dogs in the car(sunny day....really?!) we were not welcome. There were only 4 people in... More

You are in for a real treat if you eat here. Excellent coffee, delicious freshly cooked food, all at a reasonable price. Service friendly.

Living in Totnes, we walk from our place along Bourton Lane to Berry Pomeroy castle a few times a year, I really enjoy the lunches here (especially the specials), the cream teas and the homemade cakes. The only disappointment was the Sunday lunch so we try to go on another day of the week! Then we walk home through Berry... More

You would be hard pressed to find a quieter or more idyllic location than that of the Castle Cafe.A limited but thoughtful menu with attractively-presented, local, seasonal and freshly prepared food. Service is good but you will need to allow plenty of time for your food to arrive when it is busy. Some seats outside. The interior is pleasant, Scandinavian... More

Never had such bad service in my life! It took 25 minutes to bring out 2 charcoled crumpets, rock hard on the outside, not even warm or cooked on the inside, I cannot even believe they had the cheek to bring them to me in that state when i paid near enough £3 for just the two! I know it... More

We visited on a quiet and very hot Friday afternoon. The lady behind the counter was very charming and although they had just closed, was very happy to serve us tea and cakes if we were happy to sit out on the veranda area. One of the biggest pots of tea for 4 I have seen with plenty of hot... More
