Have had takeaway food from the pub a few times recently. The landlord bakes the pizzas fresh for every order. Very tasty and good price. Bonus is that when they are being baked you can have a drink of one of the real ales too. Highly recommend!

A couple with 2 young children took over the lease of the Castle Inn in December 2016 and in the very short time they have been there they have made a great impact on the place. Jaimie is the chef and Sarah works front of house behind the bar. Jaimie bakes his own bread and sells it in the bar.... More

This restaurant/cafe is under new ownership/management. We enjoyed a cooked lunch at a reasonable price.

Great pub in the heart of this small, pretty village. Has a range of drinks and 1-2 regional ales. They also have a food menu. Outdoor seating affords good view of village life in the summer.

Delicious curries and lots of choice, even for us vegetarians! We called up to book a table and would recommend this. Staff really welcoming! I think 5 of us had food and drinks for around £55! Really enjoyed the ambience.

We chose not to eat at this pub due to the poor attitude of the Landlord who appears to view customers as an inconvenience. Landlord would benefit from a hospitality course which would improve the overall ambiance of this establishment.

Hi. Myself (Jamie ) and my partner Sarah took over The Castle Inn 3 months ago. We would love you to come back as there is a very different feel to the place now and we will make you very welcome. More

just arrived back from our family holiday in Llansteffan. In the village was this pub which we visited several times during our week and has a small but nice seating area to the front. My husband and I also attended the thursday curry night as well as ordering food for takeaway later in the week. All the food was plentyful... More

Well cooked food and reasonably priced. A good selection of pub food. Chips crispy and dry and the buckets are exceptional value

the food and drink were quite pricey for what you got. My husband and 2 boys had the homemade meat pies and I had the veggie option of 3 bean chillie. The pub was also dog friendly and our german shepherd had water there also.

Popped in on Monday lunchtime after finding the much trumpeted Inn at the Sticks closed. Despite low expectations due to the rather basic decor, my carrot chomping nephew was delighted to discover that they had 2 vegan options. Food was simple and satisfying and the staff were friendly and helpful.
