Have been eating at this restaurant for over 30 years through various changes of owner/kitchen staff. When ownership last changed the new owners brought in an excellent crew who really brought the place up to scratch. The bread basket with roasted garlic was a treat, food hot, fresh and varied, as word got around the place was buzzing. Visited today... More

Nice enough food, pretty limited choice and quite small portions. Friendly staff and good service. Quite expensive for what it was.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Castle Restaurant. Rump steak with yummy chips" cooked and presented well. Bit on the pricey side but a good meal. Service was a little bit slow and maybe a bit of soft / romantic background music would be nice? Overall we would recommend having a meal at The Castle.

Service so slow even when it's not busy. We asked for high chair but was not offered a child menu. Did not know they had one until i saw it at the till once i went to pay. Bad all over service. Staff rude and not at all helpful. For the price the food was just average.

We called in here based on a recommendation but wish we hadn't bothered! Beef dripping chips tested like oven chips and the burgers were uninspiring. Food served on enamel plates - it was like being in cubs again

We were staying in the Castle Hotel for 4 nights. We were very disappointed with the quality of service and unfortunately the restaurant was not any different. We were waiting to be served for 30 minutes before we went to the bar to place our order. Again not successfully as staff members advised us to come back to the table... More

My husband and I travelled to Carmarthenshire for our 1st wedding anniversary and stopped by The Castle Hotel for a bite to eat. We were greeted by a man front of house and were told it would be a half an hour wait to be seated. He recommended we take a seat outside with a drink and he'd call us... More

There was a good menu with a good selection of wines. The local beers were nice too especially the Gower Gold. The food was cooked to a very high standard and was quite generous in size. The Ribs, if you go for the whole rack, was "mahoosive" and was excellent, melt in the mouth deliciousness.
