We were very lucky to stay at the castle and enjoy up and coming chef Johnny Stanford's amazing tasting menu! For the meagre sum of £49.50 we were treated to canapés, the tastiest bread I've ever had (the butter and beef dripping may have played a part in its excellence!) an amuse-bouche of mushroom 3 ways and then the 7 course feast as advertised! And what a feast it was both for the palette and the eyes! I can honestly say to you all if Johnny makes a return visit here make sure you get yourself booked in quickly as it really is not to be missed! The rest of our stay was likewise perfect with a beautiful room with the best assortment of teas/hot drinks I have seen anywhere and lovely friendly staff who make you feel very at home. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious - although I'm surprised I could eat a thing after the previous evenings banquet! I recommend staying at the castle and am sure you won't be disappointed.
