Well worth a visit

A friend asked me to meet him here for lunch. I knew where it is but hadn't previously been inside. It doesn't really look anything special from the outside, and it is not really on a major road, but is well worth a diversion into the attractive village of Castle Eden. I got a surprise when I... read more

We booked for Father's day mid-afternoon lunch. This is a busy date in the calendar but if your reservation is confirmed you would expect them to be able to cope. We waited for almost an hour before we could sit. The restaurant was unbearably hot (unlike the weather outside), and it was clear that many of the guests were uncomfortable.... More

We visited the inn for a bar meal and found that the special menu was Tai, I had the special and my wife had a choice from the bar menu, both meals were excellent. After settling up I latter found I had wrongly been charged for a bottle of wine instead of a glass, I had missed the mistake when... More

My husband and I eat here fairly regularly because its local and very tasty. Sunday lunch is particularly good and more than you can eat. However we decided to go for a meal one Monday and it took more than three quarters of an hour for our meal to arrive and there was only one more table of 4 dining.... More

I dined here with family, mid-week. There were three menus to choose from. The Classics, The Monthly Special and the A La Carte. As there were a few of us, we opted from different menus for both starter and main; however the waitress needed to ask which menu we had ordered from, which we were unsure of so had to... More

Treated to a Father's Day lunch by my daughters. A lovely sunny dining room, prompt service by excellent waitresses and delicious food. Definitely recommended.

we went for Sunday lunch in a party of 20. Everything was well organised for us. Attentive staff , good quality food and plenty of vedge, which a lot of eateries seem to skimp on. Will return soon.

Friendly Inn and always a pleasant place to come. Some fine ale on tap too. A lovely meal - the Parmesan Custard was great. Although not to everyone's taste. All the more for me then. Home made beef burger with cheese in a brioche was great. Nice chips too. Will visit again.
