We were welcomed by the staff, and seated in a small waiting area which was relaxed and comfortable. Drinks were served, along with the order being taken. A little taster was provided and that really set the scene for things to come. When we went through to the table, there looked to be provision in the restaurant for about 30 people to dine without being cramped or having to overhear others conversations. The food was outstanding. None of this small and pretty stuff. Yes there was care taken with the presentation and it did look good on the plate, but it tasted even better than it looked! We started with the tureen and that was special, but you must try the Lamb we loved it. At roughly £40 for the food and the choice of some interesting new world wines The Castle Cottage provides excellent value for the money. We went at night and the Castle was floodlit and right on the doorstep, stunning.

We are delighted with your review. Its great that you enjoyed our food, service and wines. We don't do 'London portions' at castle cottage, we hope to provide quality on the plate along with proper portions - probably best to have a light lunch if you are coming to dinner with us!
Looking forward to serving you both again soon, and you are right we are in a stunning part of the world
