Eaten here several times. Food, staff, ambience consistently good. Really good. Today enjoyed a Malay prawn / melon starter for the boss, while I had a superb terrine of chicken and smoked ham. Main course was chicken for her and beef blade for me. Awww............. sensational, both. That beef was magical. Went for the puddings, against my better judgement !... More

I came a few months ago for afternoon tea, but never for dinner so as a treat, I was brought last weekend. After reading some of the reviews on here I'm slightly amazed at how some people thought it was average as I thought it was absolutely fantastic! From the moment of arrival to paying the bill, I had fantastic... More

We had eaten in the resturant many times but not for a while. We were looking forward to visit as we had never had a bad meal. However the starter of mackerel, beetroot & horseradish (ice cream) was awful. The fish was limp and not fresh and it just didn't work. The main course of beef was also a disappointment,... More

The dining room was pleasant with nice spacing between tables. We ordered from a set lunch time menu which had a great and interesting selection. The meals arrived quickly and were... More

Decided to go for dinner at the reform, We greeted by a friendly receptionist, who showed us to our table, lucas was fantastic this evening great service, unfortunately the only thing I can say is out of the 3 courses, only one meal was worth the money,

Came for Christmas dinner with friends after the restaurant was highly recommended. To be honest we were pretty disappointed with the offering for 85 pounds a head. We were firstly served with an amuse bouche and while they were quite tasty my wife's vegeterian portion was brought on the same plate as the meat versions. Starters were tasty with 3... More

We went here for Christmas Day lunch on a recommendation from sister and brother in law who went last year. Not sure what has gone wrong since then but our lunch was extremely disappointing. We arrived a few minutes early for a 2.30 reservation and opted to go straight to our table, having taken our drink and food orders we... More

Had the festive lunch. Starter was fine but the turkey main course disappointed. Not great and thin turkey and mainly wet cabbage. I guess it was presented in a modern way but really not as good as expected and not cheap. Taste is most important. Won't rush back.

Great setting and ambience , food very good as usual . The only letdown is the staff , lack of care and attention at this level is unforgivable and unfortunately the Castle excels at it , food thrown on the table , not being asked if everything is ok and forgetting the sides that we ordered are not acceptable ....
