We were looking for a restaurant that allowed dogs and children for my mum's 70th birthday after being on a day boat. We called in advance and they kindly reserved a table in the bar area (dogs are allowed in the bar and garden). We...More

This is a great location in the arts and crafts part of Bungay. A great lunchtime find when we order the fabulous Innkeepers lunch. A good selection that kept us both satisfied. We will definitely order this again. We arrived relatively early for lunch which...More

We have eaten here twice during our fortnight in Suffolk and both times the standard of food was excellent and marvellous value for money. The owner and staff were very friendly and the service really good. Would recommend The Castle without any hesitation.

Stayed on business & was genuinely impressed - slept very well indeed. Great selection of local beers at the bar, didn't eat there but I will on the next visit. Friendly attentive staff as well, I'll definitely return.

We enjoyed a chicken Caesar salad and fish platter starters, with a side order of olives which came with artichokes & sun-dried tomatoes, plus drinks. The Castle Inn has a great shaded garden with shaded areas under a tree and umbrellas. Desert of Eton mess...More
