Quality Sunday Lunch

Busy with families and couples, our Sunday roast was well cooked and presented, not over salted, proper yorkshires and tasty gravy. Pan fried trout for the non meat eater was also pleasing on the eye and well sauced. Good cask beers added to our enjoyment. A good spot if you someone else to cook... read more

To break up a long drive home after some time away, we stopped off at the Castle Eden Inn for a late Sunday lunch. It was a pleasant interlude but not one that I would go out of my way to repeat. Postives: Even at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon the Inn was bustling and had a really positive lively... More

Went here as a group of work colleagues just before Christmas. Really looked forward to it but every course was attempted style over substance. 3 scallops on a fancy plate does not make a starter. Very small portion of sea bass for main...3 or 4 small portions of potatoes underneath. Prices quite high for the area. Would not hasten back.

The meals had been preordered before said date however came out at different times leaving some waiting a lot longer than others. I cannot excuse a under cooked chicken as one member of our party was served. Very disappointed with table... More

The contemporary decor combined with crisp white tablecloths was a pleasant sight. Roast lamb,pink roast beef and chicken were ordered and promptly served with mixed... More

Popped in today for Sunday lunch. Very impressed. We had the salmon and prawn fish cakes and black pudding and poached egg salad followed by 1 lamb and 1 beef dinner. Everything was cooked perfectly and delicious, service was good and the total bill for dinner plus drinks was unbelievably good value at around £50.
