Service at Castle Terrace was first class. There were some nice touches to the presentation of dishes and wine. To begin, we were presented with three little tasty starters which surprised and delighted all at the table. I had salad, salmon and panna cotta. I...More

What a wonderful last minute find! This lovely restaurant found us a table at very short notice and produced an amazing tasting menu that was divine. The food was superb and service absolutely top notch. Cannot recommend this highly enough.
