We went to the Castle Eden Inn on Friday evening for a meal. The service was very good and the girls were very attentive. My husband and I both had starters...I had crab fishcake with scallops in a lobster sauce which was divine and my husband had the sea salted squid with a Thai chili dip and salad which he... More

The staff were pleasant but the meal was not very pleasing at all. Although the resturant / pub has a quiet a pleasant atmosphere, the quality of food certainly doesn't match the setting.we started with a French onion soup which was the highlight of the meal My wife had the half lobster an absolutely miniscule amount for the actual charge...

A lovely setting and nice food spoilt by awful service from the kitchen The room was not busy and I therefore cannot understand why the service was so bad Upon sitting at the table we waited 15 minutes for a waitress to take our order - we had to ask to be served The starters came in 20 minutes -...

We three decided to return after quite a long time away. Nice to see Sonet 43 on tap and what a lovely pint it was. My meal was rabbit and black pudding salad starter ( divine ) the monkfish ( fantastic ) and finished with vanilla cheesecake and marmalade ice cream ( unbelievable ). Staff were very courteous. A very... More

I am extremely surprised by all of the negative reviews for the Castle Eden Inn; it is my favourite restaurant/pub in the local area by a long way and the food is always exquisite! We come here as regularly as I can afford. I always praise this place and recommend it to people. The traditional menu is great but the... More

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 stepped inside. It... 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

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
