Lovely meal as always today, the garlic bread was lovely, the minted lamb steak was delisious and the Welsh beef burger was the best around 😍. I can't recommend The Castle enough! The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

Lovely little pub with a great choice of food- well cooked and we’ll presented. The Stilton burger was fantastic and the Stilton chicken also great. Good sized portions at reasonable prices. Lovely staff. You will not be disappointed.

The waitress was far from being friendly, having eaten in many pubs and restaurants in my time I have not once been refused a little sample taste of a craft ale. How can you expect to sell these local craft ales if nobody is allowed...More

WE have one room which dogs can go into, and a large garden area at the front of the restaurant where dogs can go on if the weather is good!
