Sorry this review is so late but I would like to say we visited this pub last year and found it absoloutley ideal! We were trying to find a nice local pub that served sunday roasts and other food aswell. The food was plentiful and there was a good choice, there was something for everyone. On the day we visited they were having trouble with the electrics, they kept having power cuts and the restaurant was very busy, but they kept their calm and we still managed to have a very good meal. The pub itself is very roomy and easy to acsess in Dawlish Warren, the beach is just a short walk away. We are returning to Dawlish Warren in a couple of weeks time and will deffinately be going here again.

Nice sunny pub. Friendly welcome and service was faultless. But food was well below expectations. I ordered ham,eggs and chips.Usually this is a fail-safe meal when in a different venue. The eggs were over-cooked, the ham a disgusting mess of huge lumps of quivering fatty meat. What ever happened to the kitchen meat slicer?, it could have been produced so very much more appetising. The chips passed muster, but suffered the usual pub. philosophy of making sure that every part of a fairly large plate, was fully covered. The last time I will ever eat there again.

I have eaten many a time over the years at the Castle and have never been disappointed. The food is locally sourced and beautifully presented. Dirk changes the specials regularly and comes up with exciting menus. Also I would recommend the Sunday lunches with the beef especially cooked to perfection. In the summer it it lovely to sit in the shady courtyard. Remember though to book as it is a popular venue

Dirk, the classically trained Chef at The Castle, produces truly professionally cooked, quality food and at very reasonable prices. I have visited a number of times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. Give The Castle a try. Heartily recommended! PS - Be sure to book.
