Good, home cooking at average / normal pub prices. Booking in advance available and desirable to ensure table at evidently popular venue. Just the one, welcome enquiry from staff, during lunch, as to whether all was well. Nice ambience, flagstone floor, older worlde feel, unpretentious,...More

We booked a table for the Friday Fish Night and were so impressed we booked to go back the following evening. Excellent food on both nights, superb friendly service and reasonable prices.

The Castle is a small pub. It makes as much of its space as it can. There is a terrace which weather permitting is very pleasant. It is more a restaurant than a pub and in this respect it is excellent. I think the meal...More

A little gem of an Inn located at the heart of the Jurassic Coast. Loads of character inside & out. The best pub food ever at a very reasonable price. Warm and welcoming with oak beams & log fires. Rooms great value..would highly recommend.

The Castle Inn had been recommended and we were advised to book a table, For a mid week evening it appeared to be full, we all chose meals from the "specials board" and were not disappointed, We all cleared our plates! Lovely friendly staff.

These guys were fully booked but made efforts to fit us in. The place was decorated for Halloween brilliantly. Food was really good and value for money. Good on tap selection of ales. Had a super evening.

This is a cracking little pub that clearly has an excellent chef who cooks traditional food and offers excellent choice. The presentation and creativity of the puddings reflects the attention to detail often lost in pub chains that populate the Dorset tourist hotspots. The beer...More

Was looking for a non-gastro pub in Corfe. There isn't one, but look no further than the Castle Inn. Friendly, relaxed pub with the most exceptional Shellfish Chouder I have ever had. This is something special. Was a bit wary initially but any doubts totally...More

This pub is mostly a restaurant, so I guess not.

Dogs cannot go inside the pub but there is a beer garden at the rear which they can go.

Both the Greyhound and the Castle in Corfe Castle have extensive menus which cater for all. I am sure the Bankes Arms does too but haven't been recently so can't say for certain. You won't go hungry in Corfe Castle. There... More
