Bar and bar tables in a barn building, whitewashed walls, simple tables and significantl rocket like log burner give the castle a unique ambience. Steaks were excellent with ample portions. Vegetables steamed and crunchy. Pint of wye valley ale. Very enjoyable

Fortunate that this is our local. Have eaten there several times and food fab each time. The Sunday roast is a particular highlight. Small menu but everything is homemade with great ingredients.
