Went to bakewell for a day out today, very lovely little town and have visited the Castle Inn before for food. Using their 2 for £9.99 menu we ordered ham, egg and chips and macaroni cheese. After a short wait, the bar lady brought the meal over to us. She herself was very friendly. The food arrived on very large plates which totally dwarfed the portions. The ham was claimed to be hand sliced but looked more like something they picked up from the co-op, proceeded to dip a chip into the egg, expecting a nice runny yolk from the "free range" egg... No such thing. As over cooked as you could get it. I still felt glad though looking at my partners plate. The most sorry looking macaroni I've seen. Heinz tins look, and even taste, nicer. Very bland and quite rubbery. The garlic bread however was very nice. Drinks were as to be expected for price, and the place itself has a nice feel about it. They let dogs in too which is good. However would not be returning. Bakewell has far better on offer.
