We popped into The Castle Inn whilst enjoying a long weekend in Long Dean. We had a couple of drinks after a 25 minute walk into the beautiful village of Castle Combe. It is a lovely pub/ restaurant and the service was excellent.Drinks were ordered at the bar and then kindly bought to us, sitting in comfy armchairs. We had booked for Sunday lunch the following day, again we experienced the same great service. We parked on The Manor Hotel car park, which was very convenient. We had the pork and it was delicious, the meal was very enjoyable. The staff are very hardworking but still have time for you. All in all a lovely afternoon was had. We will definitely return.

We stayed at the Castle Inn for 2 nights while having a trip to the local race circuit and local towns.
The Inn is a fantastic old building in a great small village well worth a visit
We had a four poster bed in the room and a large well equipped bathroom all very clean and comfortable.
The bar / eating area is fine and there is an open fire so cosy, food was excellent in the evening, though on the second night we ate across the road at the White Hart, only because the menu seemed better for our tastes and was slightly cheaper.
Breakfast was very good indeed with the emphasis on local produce which is good, only downfall I would say is the full English isn’t the biggest, in fact the second morning we were met with half a mushroom each, not great considering the room rates!
Parking is very tight, only four spaces outside the Inn, some roadside going up the hill or a large car park at the top of the hill is free. Take care at night, it gets really dark and there are no street lights at all.

Really impressed with this place. We didn’t have a booking. We were welcomed in without question.

Asked to complete track and trace which was great. The only thing I would say with this is we had to write it down and I would worry how secure the data is. In my job we are really strict on that. Would have preferred to do a QR code scan to a secure website, but that is just me. They also asked us to stand in front of a cracking piece of kit that took our temperature. Very reassuring. Social distancing and one way systems in place, a new challenge for the hospitality sector and they have it well implemented here so great work guys.

Ordered two cokes. Intended to eat. I wanted to stay but sadly we were called away and had to leave which was a shame. This wasn’t an issue for them. No drama we just paid for our drinks and to be honest I felt bad as they could have used our table for someone dining that said I didn’t see anyone turned away.

All in all a great first impression. Menu slightly on the pricey side maybe but then with these things it’s all relative. You pay for the wonderful service atmosphere and safety in place and I would happily go there and pay those prices but some who just want a snack might feel it’s a bit much. Just check the menu before you dine.

Great work guys and definitely coming back

Overall a wonderful place for a short weekend break. Rooms were a very good size, clean and the beds exceptionally comfy. There are some great lounge areas to sit with a drink and just relax after a long walk in the countryside.

At the weekends breakfast is served in the restaurant downstairs and was very good quality with different hot food choices. We ate in the restaurant on one night. The food was very good but it did feel a little like they were out to charge you for everything. For example, bread accompaniment to your starter would cost a further £3.50. For the prices on the menu I would expect that to be included. I was also slightly disappointed that I was refused a plain green salad as a side dish to my main meal instead of the dressed salads on offer. The food was however to a very high standard.

Staff were very loud up until 10:30pm,the noise finally stopped and my wife and I managed to fall asleep until one of the staff let the fire test alarm go off twice which we as if a air horn was blown off right next to my ear which led to a very abrupt wake. To pay the high price for sleep and not get it was very disappointing. I had to get out of bed to go downstairs to complain. Couldn't fall back to sleep up until 5am that morning so ultimately the experience was ruined completely.

On a positive note the location is a very beautiful village with the hotel being right in the centre of it, breakfast was good but would have been nice to get a explanation of the options due to continental not being on show to pick from, service was very slow but this could be due to us not getting sleep and being one of the first ones at the breakfast room. Parking is on street about 3 minute walk up the hill which wasn't really a massive issue.

Overall I wouldn't stay again due to the fact that our experience was ruined due to not getting sleep. We were not asked how our night was when checking out either which was disappointing.

We stayed at this very friendly Inn for the weekend. Service I'd give 5 stars, cleanliness, 5 stars, beer 6 stars...hic. From start to finish we felt like we were the first people that stayed there.
Only given 4 stars because the dining experience (seating) started badly but ended well. Not the food, that was brilliant. They put us in the conservatory end which is lovely but with a door wide open with people smoking right where you are eating would have got them a 1 star. RIDICULOUS: for goodness sake restrict smoking to the front only. You need to read this and address the issue. People do not wish to smell fag smoke while eating! HOWEVER, I complained and your man moved us into the main area where it was 100% smoke-free.

You would have achieved 5 stars if not for the smoking issue. I hope you can see yourselves address this. Not everyone is as polite as us.

Traveled to this beautiful village in Castle Combe staying at the Manor House hotel
Decided to have lunch across the road at the Castle Inn. We were the only patrons seated in the dining room which was fine. We ordered the crispy squid which was overly fried to a dark batter which totally ruined the dish such a shame. My husband had the haddock and chips again both overly fried the haddock was dry and overcooked. The pasta crab dish was very nice.
The staff although pleasant never inquired as to how the meal was and never offered condiments until requested.
In these times of uncertainty and businesses going down the tube I would like to think this business was more on the ball certainly needs to up its game.

Parking for the Castle Inn is in the substantial grounds of the Manor Hotel, a sister property very close to the inn. Refreshingly, and unusual nowadays, parking is on trust and there is no requirement to register your vehicle. The inn is very old, situated in the centre of beautiful Castle Combe, with a lounge, bar with dining tables as well as a separate dining room. The rooms are within the main building, through a warren of corridors and steps, ours being high up in the rafters. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, but for the second time in a week, we had the inconvenience of having a kitchen extractor outlet adjacent to the window, to the point it remained closed due to noise and fumes which persisted until just before 11:00 p.m. The bathroom was large, with a powerful walk-in rain/wand shower, and good quality toiletries. We ate in the bar area in the evening, and the food and service were first rate, not something taken for granted since the pandemic. Similarly, breakfast the next morning was excellent, with good, local ingredients used (nice touch having their suppliers listed on the menu). Overall, a nice stay, if you like old, beamed properties, aside from the extractor issue!

Our dining experience was limited to just two courses but these were a revelation. It is rare to experience offerings that are as faultless and certainly not in a basic pub. Ten out of ten for food. The pub itself lacked the character that we would expect from a period building in such a location and our having to don our face masks twice to seek service is unsatisfactory, particularly as we were almost the only customers. A squawking baby seemed to be regarded as an acceptable jarring intrusion on others.

Very lucky to be around for the reopening of this lovely little pub. We were greeted by welcoming staff that politely asked us to stand in front of a thermometer camera to check our temperature, and sign my name in a track and trace which instantly made me feel very safe during these strange times. The staff were also very calm and well prepared with a smooth operation in place.
I had the crab linguini which was beautifully presented with chilli and garlic ciabatta crust sprinkled over the top! My partner had a salad and the fish and chips which was a classic but perfectly put together meal.
The dessert menu was too tempting to resist, so we tried the chocolate tart and the apricot panna cotta which were both way above expectations!

Dear Hannah, There are parking bays on the corner of the hotel. There is also free on road parking on the opposite side of the road out side of the pub, and on the hill as you come down into the village. The Manor House Hotel, which is a 2 minute walk away from us, have a car park which they allow our guests to park there, but there is a charge of £10 per night. Hope this helps. Kind regards, Lauren (Receptionist)
