“We drive from Crawley once a week to eat here!!!!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Ok maybe we are mad but I don't think so. The Camber Castle pub scores full marks for everything about it because it does not pretend to be anything it is not. It is a PROPER PUB with people who talk to you. The food is fantastic - they don't put rabbit food on an oversized plate & swirl it around to make it look pretty they cook you a proper meal. Good quality UNDERPRICED I'd say, homemade food. The soup is gorgeous - well it is all gorgeous. We want to move to Camber but until then we make the trip from Crawley once a week to visit Camber & have a meal in the Camber Castle & a chat to the locals who I hope are getting to be our friends now. The pub has a 70s feel BUT is by no means old fashioned, it is lively & fun for all ages with the best food & biggest welcome we have had anywhere for a long time. Last visited 19th October. By the way we are vegetarian & we are well catered for. The mushroom stroganoff is a must even if you are not a veggie. Somebody said on an earlier review to only drink the bottled beer - not sure why as we drink the draught beer - the draught beer is fine!!!!! by the way I put excellent for romance as we love being together there but the Camber Castle is also romantic in a nostalgic way with its retro appeal it being a reminder of what a pub should be & can be with the right people running it. Hats off to Maggie & John & all the lovely staff there!

“Brilliant Local Pub”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Excellent Guiness, Good Food. Helpful staff. No airs and graces, just a local pub for local people but kind and friendly to new faces. If you catch the Karaoke night there are a couple of amazing singers!!! One of the Barstaff does a great Jason Mraz. :0)

“Don't be put off by first impressions from outside”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

On first impressions doesn't look like a pub more like a run down chalet but don't be put off. The food is lovely, all cooked fresh and didn't have to wait too long (just enough to know its cooked to order) Prices are very reasonable ( 4 adults meals and 2 kids meals plus drinks for less than £40) and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The kids even got a free ice cream :-) Portions are very generous and I can highly recommend the Sunday roast and gammon steak.
