The castle golf club is a Great setting for summer evening tea! The food is simple but nicely presented and not overly expensive! There is a reasonable selection on the menu and pizzas are available too. Nice relaxed atmosphere!

Great experience, not cheap but you get what you pay for. It's most definitely the best meal I've ever had. A comfy bed, large bath tub and the trip over on the ferry helps to make you feel you're entering something unique.
