We normally go to the castle on a Tuesday evening but it was a Thursday this time, we were early for our booking but it didn't seem to be a problem and we were seated and drinks ordered pretty quickly. Enticed with the specials board we ordered two bacon chops with chips, veg and parsley sauce, a strange mix of... More

Came here for Sunday lunch with my other half, entrance was unfriendly and unwelcoming to say the least. Sat down and waited a while for menus to be brought to us. Waited again for someone to come to the table and take our order.. even though no one had taken a drinks order.. ordered food and drink and waited probably... More

We met up with friends for lunch and we all enjoyed our meals. There was a large Christmas party in progress when we arrived. I thought we would probably have quite a wait for our food but I was wrong. We all went for the roast turkey and it couldn't be faulted. We could not manage to eat all of... More

I arranged a 2 course meal for 42 people which in itself isn't easy, but the process the Castle has was simple and we pre-ordered. We arrived 30 minutes late (sorry!) due to traffic on the day but still we were made to feel welcome. I didn't receive a single bad review from any of the people with me on... More

We chose the Castle for its location close to our family. The rooms are spotless and very well presented in a separate block away from the popular bar and restaurant. Yes, it is a bit noisy at night with the road noise but that did not detract from the overall experience. Breakfast was excellent and nothing was too much trouble.

Staff were lovely, room was spotless, large and had a great shower. However as the building with the rooms is separate from the pub (kind of like an American motel) it was very open to the public. The door lock did not feel secure and I really did not feel safe. The hotel is located right on a main road... More

We called in for a works lunch a few weeks ago and were very impressed. There were about twenty of us so we all pre booked our choices from a menu that they emailed us. When we arrived we were made to feel welcome and lunch was served very quickly and every one enjoyed what they had. I had the... More

Well after reading Sharon W's review before me I really didn't know what to expect. This was my second visit here in a year on both occasions just passing. Earlier in the year we had no problems and the place was in the middle of being re-decorated. That was partly the reason for the return to see the improvement All... More
