The former 19th century summer home of naturalist Alexander Aggasiz is stunning and very well maintained. Dinner was exceptional is food preparation, wine selection and service. Ambiance is lovely with the Atlantic Ocean and multiple lighthouses providing great views. Would highly recommend a visit to at least the dining room.

My husband and I were really looking forward to enjoying a few new stops during Restaurant week and we were excited to try Castle Hill. I LOVED the Inn - incredible character, it really is a thing of beauty. We were seated in the oval dining room that jets out and overlooks the ocean (which I am certain is breathtaking... More

I previously reviewed the Castle Hill Inn Dining Room on a trip to Newport in 2012 and commented that "The Castle Hill Inn is up there with the best in the world. Everything, yes everything, was as perfect as I have ever had." but the best got better. We stayed at the Inn because of the fabulous restaurant and were... More

Last visit I was just in the bar. Very private. Great service cocktail coffee and soufflés. The brunch on the lawn is wonderful in great weather. The staff is very professional and Inn is a must for Victorian lovers.

We had a lovely lunch at Castle Hill. We didn't book but somehow got an incredible table right by the window overlooking the cliffs and Atlantic. We both had the lobster roll, which was delicious and very filling. We also had a cup of tea in the bar, which is a cosy, wood-paneled room. The service was mixed but overall... More

After visiting the mansions we took Ocean Drive to Castle Hill. We had a cocktail at the bar while waiting for our table and we were then seated in the dining room. Every table has a view of the ocean, it's very cozy and the wait staff was excellent. We had the lobster roll which was amazing. My husband started... More

Great ambience and service. We had the three course menu paired with wines. I did not think wines were as good as the food. I was particularly dissapointed with the wine pairing for the chocolate chip cookie souffle dessert They served a beer, a milk stoudt. I would have assumed the chocolate chip souffle would have come with a port.... More

Thank you for coming to join us and for the honest feedback. While it's great to hear that you enjoyed the service and food overall - I'm sorry that you did not enjoy all of the beverage pairings. We definitely should have explained the reasoning behind the pairing a bit better, and of course found a better option for you... More

I have wanted to dine here for many years, and finally had the chance recently. As it happened, we were lucky enough to be traveling in the area during restaurant week and decided to take advantage of the menu. What a lovely experience! The service was divine and the meal impeccable! I could not have hoped for a nicer experience... More
