Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited for the first time yesterday for Sunday lunch and were very impressed. Food was excellent and generously portioned and the staff were attentive and went the extra mile to give a welcoming experience. We will be back thank you.

The best restaurant in the local area by a fair distance. We went for Sunday dinner with one side of the family, and then raved about it so much that the other side of the family demanded we go with them. Great service and really...fair pricing too.More

Have been here twice and the experience has been the same both times. The place is too cold (I went prepared this time in tights and a jumper). We pre-ordered, but the food arrived 50 minutes after we had sat down. When the food does...arrive, it is delicious and the service, when it happens, is really good. I wouldn't choose to go back because of the cold and the waiting, which is a shame as the food is tasty and the staff are lovely.More

Lovely comfortable and very clean . Attended after a funeral . The food and service was very good. Cleanliness was excellent. Not a speck of dust anywhere. Everything was spotlessly clean.

Oh my goodness - we’ve been fortunate enough to try a few new restaurants lately but none compare to The Castle Inn. Always comfortable, cosy and welcoming… staff are superb, attentive when needed but not intrusive allowing you to enjoy your meal. The food tonight...was on another level … I had the roast belly pork and partner had the tandoori rump of Welsh lamb .. both dishes were so tasty, cooked to perfection and fresh (no skimpy portion sizes either) … both had garlic mushrooms to start. It’s always well booked up but the chef/owner Jon accommodated us at short notice 😃 if you like great food, reasonable prices, good service and quality then you won’t be disappointed …… We will be returning again and again to this Gem 💎More

My husband and I found this little gem of a place on trip advisor and what a gem it is! The food was amazing, my husband had the pie and I had the chicken and it did not disappoint. We also took advantage of the...free cheesecake dessert offer they had on which was a lovely gesture. I did think that as it was free it might have just been a frozen one but how wrong I was, it was homemade and delicious like the mains we’d had eaten. The service and the decor were fab aswell! We can’t wait to go back and eat by the open fire!More
