My first outing for lunch and felt very comfortable. Food and service was great and dare I say it felt normal. There are procedures in place which was very re-assuring but I felt very safe and comfortable considering the strange times we are currently living in.

Our second visit in as many weeks. Once again a friendly welcome with due care to social distancing and infection control. It was nice to see the Castle busier than our last visit without any danger of unnecessary contact with other customers. The food was as you would expect, well cooked and nicely presented. Your young staff were attentive in a friendly manner, with good attention to detail. No doubt we shall be with you again soon.
