During our visit to the IOM we dropped in here for a cream tea, on a sunny day there is nothing better than siting outside watching some poor bloke constantly mowing the law. But seriously a nice place to spend a few moments relaxing

Very pleasant lunch, sitting outside in the sunshine overlooking the bowling green and beautiful flower beds. We had bacon baps and sausage baps. Both very tasty. Will go back.

All said and done, The Bowling Green Café is not comfortable enough nor the food good enough to warrant charging the prices they do. However, due to the closure of so many eateries in Castleton they are one of the few options

Eventually found this by following the boards and very glad we did too. Enjoyed a light lunch and a cup of tea (in a teapot) while watching a game of bowls. The borders were full of flowers as we sat outside. There's wifi too.

...as usual. Sun was shinning and lovely staff gave a warm welcome after my absence of 2 years. Another Manx cafe that you have to watch out for the greedy gulls!

In the middle of town. A different place to sit and slow down. We watched some bowling while here it's all restful and slow paced. Clean little cafe with reasonable selection of goodies to choose from

Slightly difficult to find but it does really simple, good quality British food at a really cheap price. Well worth a visit
