I know, I know- Sunday lunch and very busy, but either the place was understaffed or just not well organised. We had booked for 3.00pm so the main rush should have been over, but the bar was overflowing with dirty glasses and it took forever for the food to arrive. Having said that, the staff were welcoming and hospitable, and... More

My family booked this restaurant/hotel for my Great Nephews 21st birthday. We all stayed at the hotel and the rooms were lovely. We travelled from Devon and Essex for the celebration. It was a very cold weekend with snow, but the rooms were lovely and warm. There are only 4 rooms, they are in the original part of the castle.... More

If the stunning views and location weren't enough to draw anyone here, the food should do. The three course meal shared with family was simply superb as well as a delight to look at on the plate! Staff couldn't have been more helpful with the celebration of my mothers birthday and created quite a chorus to accompany the puddings with... More

Received excellent service at The Castle this evening after making a late booking. Fires lit on a cold snowy evening and classy decor. The steak was delicious, tender and so tasty and the thrice cooked chips were crisp and nicely salted with sea salt. Mushrooms like you've never tasted before! Our desert was delicious and even better as it was... More

The castle is a place my dad used to visit a lot when he first met my mum. Therefore it seemed the perfect place to arrange a suprise weekend away for his 60th. The bar area was very querky and had fantastic views onto the battle fields of edgehill. All staff were friendly and welcoming! Rooms were very cosy and... More

The main draw is the spectacular view but the inside won't disappoint. Food is consistently good and the service is attentive.

Having been in the area we decided to explore this quirky venue and we were not disappointed. One of the most unique restaurants We've ever been to, with fabulous views and a fantastic menu. I had the calves liver which was amazing (see attached photo). We would love to return back in the summer again

Great venue, attractive setting, attentive staff. We only dropped in for a quick pit-stop - a couple of drinks and one of the sandwich choices, all of which come with soup as an additional option. On the face of it this may seem like a good idea.... however the soup is served in an espresso cup so more like a... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you find the team attentive, and you loved the Inn. We believe that a sandwich (freshly made bread by a artisan supplier) for £7 offers good value for money.We do offer an optional extra of a cup of Soup for £3. (It certainly isn't an espresso cup size). We also offer... More
