Me and my family come here regularly and thought we would come for Christmas Day Dinner, 18 people in total and we all thought it was fabulous!! George and the team was spectacular!

Went here as part of a large group at the beginning of November for Sunday lunch carvery and was very impressed. Superb food, friendly staff and excellent value for money. You'd be hard pushed to find a better Sunday lunch in terms of quality and value. I'd definitely recommend.

We now visit this wonderful place every Sunday and it really is the best place to have a family meal and know that the produce they use is all homemade, in particular the yorkshires which are incredibly gigantic! The young 'bearded' head chef has a beautiful skill with cookery and we shall definitely continue to endeavour to entertain this food.... More

It's perhaps not the most stylish of places but the Codnor Castle offers one of the best value Sunday carveries in the area. The food is excellent and plentiful, served by a team of lovely young staff. Well worth a try.

I went here for a presentation evening, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement - I'd heard such good things about Castle Inn, but on arrival we where greeted by a very dated function room, small bar area and only 2 toilets in the ladies, which was very dark and the floor was wet through! When we went... More

Went on a night out Friday 14th oct for a social event. About 120 of us crammed in the function room with hardly any room to move. Poor planning of the tables - heating was on full blast and we were baking hot. Could have turned the heat down. The buffet provided was poor. The bread sandwiches were dry and... More

Management response:

Good afternoon, thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your time with us. However, we did not have any input in the planning of the tables/seating plan as it was down to the organisers. The heating was requested to be turned on and it was turned off later in the evening. We... More

Attended a recent wedding here. The food was great, lovely location and all the staff were attentive and welcoming. Reasonable drinks prices. Would recommend and will be back to try the Sunday dinners.

We are fortunate enough to eat out most Sundays and get out and about, but the Sunday roast dinner at Codnor Castle Inn is unbeatable in my view. Real home cooked food ( not out of a packet ) it's a carvery so help yourself but the staff are very attentative and helpful. Desserts are plentiful but alas the dinner... More

We took my mum for lunch. The food was lovely, with a good choice of meat, vegetables, Yorkshire puddings the size of a small house and delicious desserts. Thank you to George and his team for an enjoyable meal.
