Description: Situated in the rural village of Kirby Muxloe, just off the M1 and five miles from Leicester, the Castle Hotel is a beautiful 17th century pub restaurant overlooking Kirby Muxloe Castle. Originally the castles farmhouse, the pub has retained much of its charm, with open fires in winter, candlelight dining in the evening and al fresco dining during the summer months. Stroll among the atmospheric ruins of the moated 15th century castle after a relaxed pub meal at The Castle Hotel We pride ourselves on classic pub food cooked with care. Whether it's hand-battered cod & chips, the gourmet burger, or the ever-popular ‘Brewer's Chicken’, now is the time to rediscover your old favourites. Make sure you try our traditional Sunday roasts with a huge a Yorkshire pudding and unlimited gravy. The team at the Castle Hotel are passionate about our food menu, so you can relax and enjoy our quality dishes and great service at this fantastic venue. It’s the perfect place to dine after a stroll around the stunning grounds of the castle.

I think a previous reviewer who praises the extensive menu has probably identified why this pub is merely average. if you have an extensive menu, then the food will be preprepared and microwaved, which is what seems to be the case at the Castle and indeed at all of these chains. So while the food, service and price are all acceptable, there is nothing to make it special.

Food was all fresh and lovely and there was no rush between courses, beer was well kept and lovely to sit by the log fire drinking and eating

Menu is big enough to spend 2 weeks without having to eat 2 times the same thing.
The food is excellent and many of it very UK typical.
The style is also very appreciable ! Very old british oriented.
Just outstanding.
I'm typing this as eating in the dinner in it, right now... What a great place.

the surroundings look lovely, we stayed for several nights the room was ok apart from the out of date cream given in the room. the bed was hugh but not very comfy. If you want to sleep dont even bother the walls are like paper i could here everything in the next room and i mean everything. went for a short break to relax had a terrible time no sleep could nt wait to leave. o plus the ceilings were leeking in the restaurant buckets everywhere which affected the electricity???
