Roast beef was the best we had in a long time. Enjoyed it so much I'm writing this sat at the table.

My husband and I had a lovely two course meal here. The food was delicious and although not the cheapest place, I do feel it was worth the money. The service was excellent and the setting is also very nice.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Castle Inn. The restaurant is in a lovely historic inn and the service and quality of food were excellent. This will certainly be added to our growing list of favourite places to have a quiet meal. The rural scene from some of the windows adds to the enjoyment of a meal at The Castle Inn.

We had a party of 12 for Sunday lunch and The Castle kindly put us in their upstairs function room overlooking the bowling green and Berkshire countryside. As ever the lunch was of the highest quality. My Arancini balls were delicious and the roast beef was again of the highest standard, tender and perfectly pink. A fantastic and very varies... More

I suppose that's how a Yorkshire man would describe the Yorkshire pudding. I really enjoyed the crisp and dry texture of the huge offering. The rib eye beef was gorgeous and the cauliflower cheese was a nice touch. Nice crisp roasties and plenty of other veg too which made the price fully justified.

Second time here in three months and had a good meal. The starter of black pudding was enjoyed as was the duck pate. The fish was good however the chips were soft and not crisp. The liver was good but I asked for pink ( as the last visit it was well Cooked) and sadly it was well done again!)

First time at the Castle for myself my husband has been before with work and rates it. Food was very nice for Sunday lunch. My salmon appeared to come with mussels and not prawns as listed which having never tried mussels they didn't look tempting to try. Salted caramel Creme brulee was amazing and they even stuck a candle in... More

We live in Hurst so it's great to see how much the Castle has improved over the last year. There is s great atmosphere in the bar so get there early for a drink. They have fish night on a Friday and we all had one of the special fish dishes, which were delicious. So nice to see a pub... More

This is the first time we have visted the castle and what a treat. Lovely atmosphere with fires going. Really nice menu with simple tasty food. Fish and chips were really nice and the sausage baguette was lovely. Great wine. Service a little bit slack. Had to keep going to the bar to ask for more drinks and pudding menu... More

I believe the Castle Inn has been under new management for about the last six months and is gaining a strong local reputation for its restaurant.
