A lot brighter since the makeover. Said it was a new menu but much of it was the same as the old one. Still good food.

Really good food and atmosphere. Newly refurbed. Think they were under staffed. Lovely girl served us but average service mainly due to being understaffed.

A superb place to eat, one of my favourites. The food is consistently superb and the wine pairs really well. A really nice country pub/restaurant.

The food was good but nothing special.
The staff were really nice and friendly but very inattentive.

We often come for a Sunday roast, always great, only issue leeks in the leek and pea mix were almost raw and there was no cauliflower cheese left on the menu. Otherwise excellent as always. Thank you

When I first visited the castle I had a much better experience. The menu and what’s on offer is really good but I’d just say it’s mediocre overall.

Always a great meal at the Castle. Good advice on menu choices. Shame the desert I loved was sold out but chocolate tart was equally good. Rioja is always a good choice & Peroni on tap too. Glad we booked as quite busy for a Wednesday night!

First visit here tonight, excellent meal, staff really good, great variety on the menu. Definitely 5 stars I’d recommend a visit, best meal and super value for money I’ve experienced in a long while.

Great ambience. Really relaxed atmosphere, lovely warming fire.

Service was a little slow between starters and mains but it was very busy.

Food was amazing. Presentation, taste, choice on menu were all excellent.

Thoroughly enjoyable meal.

Always nice food, well prepared and tasty. Service leaves a lot to be desired, lots of staff but feels directionless and no system as to who is doing what. Long waits for drinks etc.

Table booked through app but no sign off booking on arrival. Manager claimed they do not use Opentable??? Credit though as a table was found and we ate with no issues. Good food and service
