“What a lovely surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We called in for Sunday lunch with friends. It was an impromptu decision and although the restaurant was fully booked the staff went out of their way to accommodate us in the bar area. The food from the carvery was excellent and the general atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed.
The setting, the decor and the attentiveness of the staff made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We shall certainly return.

“The Best Sunday Carvery Ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I have not stayed in the hotel but friends have been to visit and stayed and said it was nice. I have eaten there many times and the food is great, the sunday carvery is one of the best I have ever had, some people to like to go in for the "Most Food on a Plate" award, but the food is so good you really dont need seconds.
On a sunny day, there is no better view from the patio with a glass of wine!

We enjoyed good service and great home made food (steak & mushroom pie and Castle burger). The hotel is in a lovely position with fantastic views. Highly recommended.

“wedding anniversary dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Lovely atmosphere lovely views and the food was excellent, we got married in this hotel so going back this year was a brilliant surprise and added to the special evening meal there. Service was great and food even better, I strongly recommend a visit for that special meal. Evening was great as the outside lights added to the view looking out from the main restaurant.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Have eaten lunch here several times in recent months and the food and service has always been faultless!

Food is usually serviced in reasonable time and staff are always polite, helpful and apologetic if they are busy and there is a slight delay.

Good choice if meals and snacks at reasonable prices, although the some if the sandwichs seem a little expensive. (Minor issue)

Great patio area and garden to sit out when the weather improves.

Will definitely continue to lunch at the castle.
