I’m here right now, having just finished my meal. I’ve had two pints of perfect “Proper Job” beer and a steak, ale and Devon blue pie dinner. I have to say that there is nothing about this pub I don’t like (this is my third...More

Stopped here for lunch with my Wife whilst passing-through on the nearby trunk road. The pub has ample off-road parking. The building appears to be very old and retains many authentic features inside and out. Inside, the decor is very traditional with a wonderful stone...More

Stayed for 1 night doing the Sustrans route 27. Very convenient, right on the route and just over half way coming from Ilfracombe. Very traditional room, with provided toiletries and plenty of hot water, for the much needed ( modest size) bath. Nice view over...More

We were in Lydford on holidays. The pub is a dark, low-roofed proper pub. The food is quite good, the place evocative of old England, just next the little castle. Good beers.

Proper pub. Not a gastro pub (though the food is good and reasonably priced) Not a drinks boutique. A proper village pub in a beautiful old building. Dog friendly, separate bar and restaurant, good range of drinks, appealing menu. Probably best to book in season.

We've managed to eat a couple of times in the Castle Inn and the food is good value for money especially given the location however.............. getting a table is almost impossible and it doesn't seem to matter what time of the day you turn up....More
