We had afternoon tea here in the afternoon and the finger sandwiches were a credit to the chef, with stunning flavours.along with the home made scones and cakes.a nice glass of bubbly to wash it all down. The staff here were helpfull and could not do enough for you. A big difference to the Other restaurant called the braz.

The food was excellent, the staff gave great attention to detail and were faultless (those little things)! unexpected appetisers, real delight. Very nice dining area, however the bench seating area to the rear of the room is a little tight and if you are the unfortunate one to sit facing the wall, the person you dine with had better have...

An overnight pitstop with a last minute booking which proved to be an excellent choice. We were given pre dinner appetisers which were delicious and extremely well presented which set the tone for the rest of the meal. From the bread basket to desert, each course was divine. The menu was a perfect balance for every palette and was most... More

This was a wonderful gift from past employers but have always wanted to go here. We were not disappointed. Firstly we had a choice of tea to choose from. Then a wonderful selection of sandwiches and cakes appeared. Needless to say I couldn't quite eat my share but my husband managed his 😁. Highly recommend this place.

Booked afternoon tea for my mum and me on Friday at 5pm. We were brought to the "snug" area of the castle which was an almost closed off room. It was explained that the restaurant would be opening at 6 and we were set up there so we wouldn't be rushed. We accepted this but realised that we didn't get... More

I surprised my mother for a Mother's Day/ Easter treat by having afternoon tea at the Castle. A very good experience for the both of us. Quality of tea (choices of tea was excellent) was brilliant. The cakes and sandwiches were excellent and enough to actually take some home in a doggy bag! Overall experience was spot on!!

We had a wonderful meal on Saturday evening, the tasting menu was outstanding, along with an excellent wine list. The perfect venue for special occasions, romantic meals or just a treat. The staff are wonderful and looked after us very well. Would highly recommend.

I went here for a private function and was very excited about eating here. The food was good and my 3 courses were tasty, but not what I would call outstanding, however we were a large party, so I can only think it was difficult serving a large group. The service was not great, (a starter was forgotten) the staff... More
