Been looking for this kind of lunch for too long in south Norfolk/north Suffolk and today we found it. Could have been transported to France. Wines by the carafe, a really varied menu from sandwiches to pork fillet with dauphinois potatoes or a platter of saucisson, salt beef, ham, three cheeses, home made chutney, olives, salad, hummus and crusty bread....

Following the recent comment by AA Gill in the Sunday Times we crossed over the border from Norwich and popped in to the Castle Inn after a walkabout around this lovely old market Town. And what a great find. On a hot day we sat in the shade of a magnificent Indian Bean Tree, choose from a menu which would... More

The food here is really good, it's centrally situated in Bungay and they have a lovely outdoor seating area which is perfect on warm summer evenings. There is a good choice of food to suit all tastes and they're happy to tweak dishes to your liking, a very pleasant dining experience

We wanted a base near to the coast for one night and we were really happy with our experience at the castle inn. Great value for a lovely room and a fantastic cooked breakfast in a great location. Bungay is very pretty with some great pubs notably the green dragon which brews it own ale (£2.80 a pint!) and plenty... More

A A Gill the food critic for The Sunday Times gave this pub a very good review recently, so we decided to try it for Sunday Lunch. It is very popular with families and couples. There was a very good selection of items on the menu to choose from. We opted for roast beef which was excellent. Very good quality... More

We ate here recently whilst staying at Flixton. We chose the Castle because,of,reviews and the fact we could bring our dog with us. The food was very good, value for money and the service was with a smile!

Having spent some hours trying to contact the owners of this restaurant both by email and by phone (to discuss the possibility of serving a good gluten-free meal) we nearly gave up and were about to book elsewhere when contact was finally made. The discussion with the chef proved fruitful, so we booked a table for 12, promising to arrive... More
