The Mansion's chefs artfully craft fresh local fish, regional meats, and produce into a distinctly native, seasonal menu, served in four dining rooms within the Inn. On The Lawn, the epitome of classic New England al fresco dining, think small plates and summer cocktails delivered right to your Adirondack chair. From creative cocktails to appetizers to desserts, imaginative presentation and exceptional taste characterize Castle Hill Inn's fine Dining Experiences.

A Newport Treasure!

The Inn at Castle Hill is one of Newport's treasures. This magnificent Victorian mansion is in probably the best location imaginable. It is set above Coast Guard Station Newport on the top of Castle Hill. There is both indoor and outdoor dining, weather permitting for outdoors. It is the epitome of... read more

We dined at Castle Hill for the second time when visiting Newport. The first time it was perfect all around. This time months in advance we asked for the main dining room so we could see the exquisite sunset. We called ahead that night and were promised the main dining room. When we got there we were seated elsewhere in... More

What a marvelous experience! Came for a late lunch. We had a reservation and they seated us promptly on the extended patio. It was a windy cool day so blankets were offered first thing. The service was prompt and impeccable. Food was delicious. The special of a fried scallop poor boy was excellent, the lobster roll was fabulous and the... More

We arrived on a rainy evening, disappointed not to be able to enjoy the outdoor waterfront seating. The receptionist welcomed us in and lead us to a waterfront table where we enjoyed a spectacular 180 degree view of the storm as it swept across Narraganset Bay. We choose the fixed price three coarse dinner with a perfectly matched wine pairing.... More

We had a wonderful stop at Castle Hill for drinks with family on the lawn in the Adirondack chairs. The weather was fabulous and the lawn had many chairs from which to choose. Views of the harbor and bridges, watching the boats go by, can't beat it! We cannot rate the food since we only had drinks but the 5... More

This is a review of the dinner in the formal dining room, not the casual fare served on The Lawn. Foodies may enjoy this caliber of dining, but we had to look up menu items and ingredients on our smartphones. Servers were attentive and did their best to make this a superior dining experience, but if you are not the... More

I am completely appalled by Castle Hill. They absolutely ruined what was to be a very special day. I am not going to waste any more energy on this except maybe at this point a senior manager will see this and someone will finally show some respect and return a phone call. I was served the most disgusting tasting food... More

Do not miss the chance to eat here. It was one of 5 best meals I have ever had. As good as the dinner was, I do think the breakfast might even have been better. Every single detail is perfect and everything is made with enormous care. The service was extraordinary.

This place has it all, great service, excellent food (I had the hamburger with bacon, and the fries were out of this world). The view is amazing, and we even stayed after our meal and just sat in the law chairs watching the sailboats go by.

The views are magnificent. Dining as the sun sets over Newport is incredible. The food is fantastic. The wait staff are knowledgeable, polite and attentive. The prices are reasonable for the high quality dining experience. The wine list is extensive.
