“Sunday Lunch was superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were passing the Castle Coaching Inn on Sunday and decided to stop for a spot of lunch. We both ordered the beef and we we were not disappoiunted! The veg was cooked to a turn, the roasties were excellent and the beef and yorkshire pudding were quite superb.

We will most definately be going back to this restaurant, great food, great service and very reasonably priced. 10 out of 10!!

“An oasis on the A40”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Evening on the A40 away from the English border, we were feeling hungry. We saw a number of pubs along the way but none looked right. However as we came into the very small village of Trecastle we saw The Castle Coaching Inn. It had steps - a problem with a wheelchair. Nevertheless I went in to check. The proprietor was very helpful, he pointed out a away into the bar area that did not involve steps.
The menu was good but we chose from the specials blackboard, my wife and I had Seafood Pie, whilst my son fish and chips. The portions were generous and the quality high. The crust of the pie was mashed potato with a melted cheese coating, the crispness of the coating combined with the soft mash was really delightful. The desserts were equally good and the overall cost including drinks was just under £20.00 per person.
Not eating in the restaurant section (to get to the restaurant area one needed to climb some steps) did nothing to spoil the experience, indeed several others were eating in the fair sized bar area. Service was good and the Inn very interesting with quite a varied history. I was told that the main income source was in fact the accommodation, I imagine that it would be a good place to stay with good food on hand.
