Our visit far surpassed our expectations. The introductory video was brilliant. Really got drawn into Miss Wood's story. PLEASE can somebody make a feature film of her life?! Only disappointment was that we all wished the kitchen could be set up to show it as it was when she was living in it. We enjoyed excellent coffee and cake with... More

Didn't visit the Castle (local boy - been there, done it) but had Sunday Lunch in the restaurant. I had the Lamb Dinner , plenty to eat and it was lovely! Comfortable, warm, nice views over the river and the service was great! High recommended.

This review refers to the café as we didn't enter the castle. Nice setting with a decent view either of the castle grounds or out towards the river. Nicely presented inside furniture wise with some booths near the entrance. Let down by the service and tables not cleared of used cups etc. Waitress asked us to sit down and would... More

The castle has great history, super informative video at beginning of tour, but the castle/grounds somewhat disappointing when compared with surrounding.

Sadly if you ask for breakfast at 11am it's a no go and they do not serve lunch until. 12 mid day. During this hour you can have a cake. What is up with this attitude to the tourist industry, when the other restaurants will serve you breakfast or lunch. May be the kitchen isn't big enough to cope with... More

We thought we would try the Castle for dinner. The restaurant has been decorated to a high standard. We were the only ones dinning on a Friday night but a large group arrived later in the evening. We each had three courses. Food was cooked beautifully and tasted lovely but it would have been nice to have a few more... More
