We stayed at Castle Murray in June , it was wonderful. We were informed ahead of time that the restaurant was closed but they still made breakfast . We met a couple who were from England and they told us that we had just missed...More

Castle Murray is a very special place. This was our third visit and there are many reasons for our repeat business. The view, atmosphere, food, and owner are all 5 star. You feel at home immediately and there are very few more lovely places in...More

I'm not going to go into too much detail as it was August 2016 I was there. Not the cheapest place on the planet but without doubt the tastiest beef burger I have ever eaten in my life. Nothing flash or over decorative, just simply...More

This property has a stunning location and one of the best parts of the meal is sitting in the conservatory having a coffee after the meal looking out to sea. Usually this place is a 'once a year' treat because its not cheap, but at...More

We love this restuarant but were a bit disappointed today in the Sunday Lunch. It is advertised at 25 euro but any of the interesting items on the menu have a £5 surcharge ( starters included) which in reality can make the lunch 35 euro...More

From the impression I get from the lack of choice on the lunch menu here (on a Saturday by the way) lunch is not rated as a proper time to eat food. The evening menu is the priority here. I can only base my review...More

Castle Murray prides itself on its dedication and passion to achieving a consistently high quality dining experience. Our Head Chef Remy Dupuy, who has worked in Castle Murray since 1995, is well renowned for using the best of locally sourced produce to create dishes that once enjoyed will have you planning your next trip back to Castle Murray. Our evening dinner menu showcases the passion and talent of Remy and his team while giving the customers a gastronomic experience that is often mimicked but seldom equalled. Great care and attention to detail is given to the design, creation and delivery of each dish on the menu, which reflects the dedication and desire for greatness which motivates Remy and his team. If you haven't already heard about our House Special dish 'Prawn and Monkfish', then it is a must have. A dish so good it should have its own Appreciation Society! The dining room is refined yet comfortable, with a warm and welcoming ambiance that surrounds you once you enter the room. The striking views of St. John's Point and its natural beauty can be enjoyed throughout the dining room. Our restaurant has the added bonus of having a beautiful open fire, which in the winter, when the fire is roaring creates a warm and homely atmosphere that is much sought after on dark winter nights. Through the direction of the General Manager Marguerite Howley and our Maitre d'Hotel Fabrice Costes, a commitment to a professional and personable service is guaranteed to you. Along with our evening dinner menu, we offer a mouth watering 5 course Sunday Lunch that is extremely popular with people far and near. And if that hasn't tempted you 'foodies' out there then we are pleased to tell you that during the summer months we have a gourmet bar lunch menu available and an absurdly delicious and decadent Afternoon Tea service that is sure to tantalise those taste buds.
