A fabulously traditional and cosy old English style inn whose staff gave us the most lovely and friendly welcome from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was absolutely delicious. We booked after reading reviews on trip advisor as we were staying locally in the area and were so pleased we did. There were a...

Over 20 of us had a costal walk this morning followed by a lunch at the Castle Inn at 2pm just as the rain began. What good timing! And what a fantastic Sunday roast.!. The pork was succulent with plenty of fresh veg. The beef also looked lovely. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. What a splendid way to start... More

Had a good evening at the Castle just after Christmas. The experience was fun with all the Christmas lights on the ceiling, it was warm and cosy. The food had a varied selection of normal menu and specials. Friendly service and good home made food. Worth visiting if you want an honest welcoming place to eat. Beer was fresh and... More

An absolute gem of a traditional pub for family lunch with young kids. All were made very welcome by very friendly staff. Small and very cosy bar/restaurant with log fire. Proper homemade pub food with excellent service. Brilliant in every respect, will definitely be back.

We didn't intend to visit here, but after a lovely walk we were ready for food. The sign outside said 'superb roast dinner'. We weren't disappointed! The food was indeed superb. Very tasty, generous portions served by friendly staff. This is a very small establishment, old with lots of character, really cosy. If I didn't live in the north I... More

Lovely time to visit pre Christmas,with bright colourful lights adorning this small pub. The staff were very accommodating as we had not booked a table. The ale pie was so so good we wished we were staying to return the following evening. Hopefully next time we are in the area we will return.

Visited with family on the eve of Christmas. The Castle Inn has a fabulously festive and lovely atmosphere with the magical lighting. Good pub grub - burger is recommended. Lovely service.

Beautiful thatched village pub, great selection of real ales and the national cider pub of the year, very dog friendly. Clean basic bedrooms, good pub grub with big helpings, great breakfasts with sausages for the dogs!. Close to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, ideal for walkers I'll certainly stay there again when walking in the area.

Came here on our way to Kimmeridge The Castle Inn is a really old fashioned English Pub. Small and intimate with a crackling fire. Service was friendly and fast. Beers tasted good. We were surprised to find that it was the top Pub in Corfu Castle. There is nothing wrong with the place, but it's not amazing either. Might come... More

We stopped here for the first time after family had come to visit for the weekend. After a recent experience of a very poor roast in another pub I was hoping this would be good. 3 x roast beef & 1 x roast turkey, all cooked to perfection, food was hot, generous portions and the gravy was delicious just not...

They don't have a website as far as I know. They are a pub with a restaurant in it.
