About The castle inn

Today The Castle Inn, unencumbered by any brewery tie, serves ales from around the country, and will always have a local brew on tap. We usually change beers weekly so you can always be sure of variety. We have been included in the good beer guide since we've opened and are CAMRA accredited as well. We are passionate about our food and the quality ingredients that we use. Our food menu is changed seasonally as we use locally sourced foods including foods from Hurst Manor Farm and Ashridge Manor. We offer freshly prepared quality pub food including our famous burger and ribs. Friday night at the Castle is our fish specials night. We offer a range of fresh fish starters and mains, these change weekly depending on what the fisherman catches! On Sundays our menu will usually include roasted rib of beef and pork loin as well as a selection from our weekly menu. Booking is advised, especially at weekends.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and although it was rather chilly sitting outdoors, the food and service made up for it! Shall look forward to returning when Sunday roasts are back on inside!

The online ordering was a bit of a faff, and a larger ale selection would have been nice, but current conditions considered it was very good!

It's really tough to deal with outside dining. In the sun if possible but keeping to the guidelines. The weather is still a little unkind, but The Castle are doing the best they can.

Lovely pub in a beautiful country location. The interior is being renovated at the moment, I'm sure it'll be lovely when completed. The staff were attentive and helpful

Great food, decent beer. It was great to get back to the pub again, even if it was just the garden.

We were disappointed with the quality of the food. Hopefully it will improve. Service was also very slow.
