“Lovely”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

After getting married at Banwell Castle and experiencing Carmino's cooking we have been back to the restaurant several times (including Christmas Day) and never been disapointed. The menus have been different, not huge, which to me means freshly cooked, and the food beautifully cooked and presented. The service is efficient and it's just a great dining experience. Go, you'll love it. We are returning again for our Christmas Dinner this year!

“Excellent resturant and setting”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

My Husband and I have just had our 50th BD party for 24 guests at Banwell Castle and would recommend it to others both in terms of quality/setting and value for money.
Carmino who runs the Gatehouse resturant gave us an extensive menu choice and it is all run very efficiently. We had lots of flexibility to have the day as we wished. The meals were extremely nice and were piping hot and nicely presented and everyone was very pleased.
We had the use of the courtyard for pimms on arrival and then had tea/coffee and cake on the terrace after the meal and the setting is just wonderful.
Our guests who live a long way away could not believe they had come to a castle for lunch and we are very pleased that we decided to book our party at Banwell castle.

“Fabulous cream tea and lovely views”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

We visited the Castle for cream tea so we didn't have a formal meal. We didn't know the castle existed, but were checking out the area as we were moving to the locality. We decided to stop here as we saw the sign for cream teas. It's a strange place - feels like you are walking around someone's lounge but we ordered out cream teas and then went to sit outside and enjoy the view as the weather was lovely. The peacocks were an added bonus (depending on whether you like peacocks....)

Would recommend for a short stop and a cream tea on a lovely warm day.

“Lovely views and a great cream tea!”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We had a nice time at Banwell castle, the cream tea was nice and sitting outside looking at the view was a lovely way to spend an hour. The peacocks added to the experience. Worth a visit.
