A small but widely different menu of home cooked food encourages you to go back. The service is excellent and the hosts welcoming. Essential to book, I would say this is probably one of the best meals I have had this year.

We were staying close by and called in one lunch time just for a drink. A very warm and friendly welcome from Mark. We cast an eye over the menu and decided to book a table for the following evening. I had Lamb Shank with Mashed potatoes and a medley of perfectly cooked vegetables. Absolutely delicious. Hubby chose the Chicken... More

Visiting Corfe and looking for venue for evening meal. Booked circa 4pm. Just as well as although place was virtally empty when we arrived - 7pm, it soon became full. Good food politely presented and not over-priced. Excellent. Semper sint in flore as they say - well, the Romans did!

We had lunch in here on the spur of the moment and I am so glad we made this choice. The person behind the bar was superb. I have to say it was one of the nicest welcomes I have had from any place. She let us know what was and wasn't one the menu immediately. The food itself was... More

Just had yet another amazing meal at the castle. So relieved we booked ahead, fully booked up with people turning up ad hoc being disappointed! Started with the oysters followed by seabass and tiger prawns. Absolute perfection! These guys can really handle seafood! Coupled with the excellent service and welcome from mike and livi, a visit to the castle has... More

Had a lovely meal at the Castle Inn. Mike and Liv were very welcoming and the service was great. The food was well cooked and all the ingredients were local. Will be back as have enjoyed each visit. Keep up the good work.

Popped in on a bitter February night for a nice warming meal. The pub was very small and entirely laid out in a restaurant style, with a small group of drinkers at the bar. There was a short menu, with some specials, which included several fish dishes (Friday being fish night apparently). There wasn't anything on the menu or that... More

Stopped at the Castle Inn for lunch as we do regularly thanks to their great quality food and fantastic allergy info. Friendly and welcoming staff, high chair available and a lovely garden on a nice day. Our only complaint is that the fairies seem to have gone off on holiday leaving our daughter disappointed. Hope to see them back on... More

Always a warm welcome at The Castle Inn, a tiny, cosy, stone built pub with lots of character. Good menu which features local produce and a daily specials board. Well kept real ale and a couple of ciders, no wonder this place is always busy!

First rate Sunday roast. Generous helping and plenty of vegetables. Best to book as pub was full. Pleasant helpful staff.

They don't have a website as far as I know. They are a pub with a restaurant in it.
