“Loyal customer for years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

The best food in the area by a long shot! And the friendliest staff... Verity is also one of the hardest working landlords I have ever known!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

We have been going to the castle for many years, and the food and service are great, don't listen to bad reviews.
If your after a wine bar, this isn't the place for you

“Fantastic Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I started going there about a year ago, and I must say its very good there. The staff are very friendly and the food is fantastic. We go here most Sundays now for our roast dinner. Food cooked all fresh and cooked to order. Gets very busy at weekends so booking is advisable. I think Verity (Manageress), and her staff do an extremely excellent job.

“The place for hungry sailors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Sophisticated it ain't. Location is the clue; just outside the gates of a large marina. The Castle is a favourite haunt of mine, and a must after a cold hard day's sailing. It is an unpretentious pub serving outstanding simple pub food in monster portions. I've had steak and ale pie, or steak and kidney pud., both served with chips, but also with large helpings of plain boiled veg. I find it hard to imagine better value for money, especially as it is all cooked fresh on the premises. Watch out for the mixed grill, which is a butcher's shop on a plate, then chips on top. most would struggle to clean the plate. The staff understand that a cheerful, friendly attitude creates a welcoming atmosphere, so it is no surprise to find the pub busy even mid-week. There is always a choice of hand pulled beers, which I have found to be well kept. Don't be put off by the lack of superficial gloss, this place is solid gold.
