A range of different styles, but all home cooked. There was no microwaved packet food here, just a range of simple delicious home cooked food. There was quite a range of vegetarian options, too,which is unusual to see. The desserts were varied and, again, home cooked. Not a synthetic nickerbockerglory or a packaged steam pudding in sight. Such a refreshing... More

We had an evening meal, and I have to say this was wonderful! Attention is clearly paid to achieving a high standard. You have to treat yourself to a meal when staying here. Breakfast was equally fantastic, from cooked to continental and plenty of choice. Service on the whole was very friendly and staff always happy to help. The hotel... More

Wasn't expecting a meal as good as this when I booked into the Castle Hotel, thought I was just gonna get pub grub. Wrong !! Whitebait starter was cooked perfectly and served with a tasty dip. Crunchy chicken main course was again cooked perfectly and served with, dip, coleslaw, chips and sliced gherkins. It really was a great dish with... More

We stayed here for a weekend, and I have to say, what a lovely place it is. Very old, so lots of creaky floors, but that is to be expected. The hotel is full of character, and even has its own museum. The room was lovely, very spacious and very clean, lovely bathroom. The staff were pleasant and very helpful,... More

There are so many fantastic aspects of this beautiful old hotel. It is a shame that the manageress lets it down. The young bar and restaurant staff were immaculately dressed, super efficient, friendly and courteous. The manageress was not. The Castle is clearly trying to covey a new modern image and the majority of the staff do this admirably. The... More

We decided to go come here for dinner on the last night of our holiday. We were 'greeted', if you can call it that, by a lady who was quite rude! In hindsight we wish we had left at that point! We had starters which were quite nice but then the mains arrived! The £22 steak which my husband asked... More

As other recent reviews will testify this was clearly a blip in what has been our very successful food service of late. We are a little confused however as no one has any recollection of any complaints on the evening in question. It is far more difficult to compensate after the fact. It would seem upon investigation that the Lasagne... More

I rarely bother to write reviews, but on this occasion I feel it is completely deserved. I had lunch and supper here at The Castle Hotel restaurant this week and the food was really very good. I hate paying for food out unless I am going to eat something as good, if not better than I could cook myself at... More
