I visited the castle today for a surprise family party for mums 60th birthday. I arranged the booking online which was do easy with prompt response, we had a private room which had no extra cost or booking fee. The service mainly by Rob our waiter was excellent he couldn't do enough for us very attentive and the food was delicious. A big thank you to all the staff!
Many thanks for your comments Emma. They will be shared with the whole of our team.
A BIG thank you to Scarlett, Anthony, Ellie, Tara and everyone who helped make our Yoga Christmas party a success. For a party of 27, I wouldn’t have done it without your help. Everything was perfect! And because of the success of last night’s event, I’ve decided to change the venue of my next Christmas party with friends in Dec and come back to Castle Inn. Looking forward to repeating the ‘success’ of hosting my next party at Castle Inn. Bella Whitaker
We are so pleased you enjoyed your evening Bella. Many thanks for planning your return. We will look forward to seeing you soon.
Great family meal for daughter's 21 st. Food was superb and service exceptional. Atmosphere in the barn was cosy and bright just a pity the restaurant was so quiet but it was a Monday. Will definitely be back.
Dear Audrey - Many thanks for letting us know you enjoyed your special meal at The Castle. Best wishes from us all.
Not the best experience this time! Maybe the chef was having a bad day but the food was poor. Our waiter was friendly and did his best to resolve our various issues. The Manager wasn’t apologetic and was very reluctant to compensate us for our poor experience. Not the best!
Dear Nikki - Thank you for alerting us to what needed to be better during your visit. We will look at what action we need to take to make sure our food and service quality is excellent at all times. Regards, Sam Roffe, The Castle Inn,
Lovely place for a nice lunch. Will be back to try you for dinner one evening.
Thank you for coming to eat with us and for letting us know you plan to return. Best wishes from us all .
This was our first time visiting The Castle. We’d heard some great things about the place from friends and they were right. Loved the food - and the service was really impressive.. the staff picked up that we were there to celebrate a birthday and presented us with complimentary Prosecco with our desserts - so thoughtful. It’s a must for further visits - thank you!
Many thanks for letting us know you enjoyed your time with us. We hope to see you again very soon. Best wishes from us all.
Absolutely amazing, will definitely be visiting again
It's great to know you enjoyed your meal with us. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Best wishes from us all.
First class service from all the staff
I was given the option to book a table unto 9.45, so booked at 9. I turned up at the inn at 8.15 and was told the kitchen shuts at 9. We went to our table in a rush at 8.30. At 8.50 we had to ask for an order to be taken. by 9.15 we still were waiting for our drinks, so chased. We were then told some food not available (basically nothing had happened). Beef Bourgignon was substituted for the pie and we were told at their cost. Wine arrived well past 9.30 (over an hr late). Starters arrived and were just okay. We were told these would be complimentary due to the terrible service. Mains arrived. We only eat about half as neither brilliant but was well past any interest by then (gone 10 by then). Bill next day had starters on and BB, I changed the BB to pie but paid for our 'free complimentary starters'. Really terrible service. Breakfast was fine. I would not return. Restaurant was not busy.
Dear Dominic - I am so sorry you had a poor experience. I will alert our senior team to the problems you experienced and we will take appropriate action. Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Regards. Sam Roffe, The Castle Inn.
I had a review ready but decided not to post it when I saw the huge number of terms and conditions on this site
Consistently good, well designed restaurant for accommodating different party sizes. Didn't feel we had to rush our meal. Friendly, helpful staff.
Excellent meal and service as always.
The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. Fantastic service!
Our booked table was still occupied so we were given a rather utilitarian table away from the main dining area. Many of the menu items had run out at only 6.30pm.
Polite, cheerful staff and fabulous food.
