Was very much looking forward to Sunday lunch, we googled numerous local places but decided on the castle eden inn as I had been lots of times in the past and it was always good. We were seated but were ignored for around 20 minutes before we got a menu. The menu on paper sounds lovely, but I didn't feel... More

Booked a table the previous day, however on arrival the reservation was missing. However we were still offered a table, after a short wait in the bar. Once seated and having perused the menu, it took 30 minutes for the order to be take, so long that free drinks were offered. The starter eventually arrived, the poached hens egg was... More

We came here for Sunday lunch and did not have a good experience. First of all we ordered drinks at the bar and I was short changed. I told the bar man and he gave me the money straight away but it's still an awkward situation. When we were seated at our table we were given some menus and then... More

Sat down and a waitress duly arrived. A couple of items listed were not available which surprised me as it was only 7pm. Downside...I am... More

My husband and I love this place, he takes a paper and I a book, peace and quiet. Lovely fresh homemade food and very efficient service, we like to use this little gem whenever we can. Have visited over the years and seen vast changes but all for the best.

We had to leave urgently while the others were staying for dessert so my husband went to the bar to settle the bill and was told to return to the table where the waitress would settle it despite saying we...
