We were out for a drive and randomly stopped at this pub and hotel, it was deserted so we were worried about tte food as it was not busy. But it was an amazing lunch There was cauliflower cheese and a selection of sharing bowls...More

We visited the castle inn whilst on a steam train trip and visiting the castle. We had the ploughman lunch which was delicious! I would highly recommend it!

Firstly the restaurant was very cold. The waitresses were very casually dressed and not very friendly ! The only good thing was the food.

Very disappointed. Went after reading reviews but was really disappointed. The food was nothing special and expensive for what it was. Needless to say, we won't be going back again.

We stayed here in our motor home and were made very welcome. The staff are friendly and the Inn is opposite Bodiam Castle which is well worth an couple of hours wandering around.

After reading a previous review, We decided to try the Castle Inn for lunch. We were not disappointed. Great selection of different dishes from full meals to sandwiches and a good selection of unique vegetarian dishes. Highly recommend.

This was our third visit to The Castle Inn and we loved it. We stay there in our motorhome and always have a meal and a few ciders. Look forward to returning soon.

We booked this lunch on a very cold and wet Monday in February, expecting the pub to be empty. However, due to the constant bustle of traffic visiting Bodiam Castle, the pub does get a fair amount of passing trade which creates a nice atmosphere....More

Dogs are very welcome at the Inn (inside or out). We had ours under the table as we had our meal (at the dinner tables in the bar area). I believe that dogs aren't allowed in the restaurant part though which is fair enough... More

Yes they do, and they are very nice too! It's worth booking though as they get busy on a Sunday.
