Lovely Sunday lunch with the family, although there isn’t a children’s menu the food they provide and adapt for kids is excellent - clear plates all round 👍🏻. We will definitely be back again very soon.

We visited for my wife’s birthday with a group of friends. We found the level of service incredibly poor, with lack of attention and customer care. There was also a lack of food as you had run out of lots of dishes / ingredients and therefore our menu choices were very limited. I don’t think we will be rushing back !

Service slow and inefficient (starter plates still on table when mains came out) Not advised of menu change so kitchen substituted a dish without consulting us (we didn’t want replacement dish as completely different and waited 30 minutes for replacement)

Having been for lunch on a few occasions we decided to go the NY event. A warm welcome from all the staff & an allocated waitress Georgina, who was excellently attentive throughout the evening not just when serving food & drinks. It was also good to see the Manager & directors spending time with customers. Despite the volume of people there the food was of a very high standard, freshly made and served in a timely manner. The DJ entertainment accommodated music for all ages there & gave a good NY countdown. Highly recommend the evening.

Great food and Rob was fantastic. Only thing is though we weren’t offered tea/coffee and mince pies - we had to ask for coffees and I think we paid for them, and we never got the mince pies. Lovely Christmas Day overall!!

Dear Steph - I am very sorry you missed out on the mince pies - but am pleased to know that overall you enjoyed the day. We discuss all customer feedback and will look at why you were neglected and had to ask for coffee. Best wishes. Sam Roffe, The Castle Inn.

The only issue we had was that we were sat waiting for twenty minuets before the menus even arrived, appreciate it was a busy time, and the service improved markedly after large parties left, food was excellent.

We enjoyed the evening and the food and atmosphere was really lovely. The service was hit and miss with a lot of us having to get up to ask for drinks rather than anyone checking if we needed more. We had to order the drinks twice on one occasion as they weren't delivered. We also didn't all get our puddings at the same time and nobody seemed to be aware only half of them had been delivered to the table. All the servers were aware of the delays in service but nobody really took the time to say anything about it and we still paid the 10% service charge. Hope the feedback helps. We did enjoy ourselves overall.
