Situated right in the middle of Bamburgh and as soon as we went in we felt at home. Bent over backwards to make us feel taken care of. The restaurant has a garden area that welcomes dogs. The next time we go we will take advantage of that. The food was good and we can't wait to go back.

We stayed in Bamburgh last April and ate at the Castle Inn, returning to stay there again we decided to go to the Castle Inn again having been impressed on our last visit. The pub was very cosy on two cold winter evenings and we were pleased to find the service and quality still very good. On our first night... More

Visited again a few years after our first visit when we were in Northumberland again. We had a great meal here without needing to book. Good portions for Sunday roast plus lots of choice if you don't fancy the roast option. Definitely recommend. The only criticism I would have was trying to find the website or menus online.

A lovely pub with friendly staff and good food. The boullabaisse was filling and tasty and the crab fishcakes also. Just the place for an informal meal.

Really enjoyed our evening here over the Christmas break, very cosy pub with a roaring fire, the wine was good and the food was traditional pub food which hit the spot after a long walk along the beach!

recently had lunch here in this cosy lovely Christmassy pub - two of our party had the vension sausage (4) in large Yorkshire pudding with mashed potato and I had beef chilli with chorizo sausage and rice - just the right amount of heat in the chilli so that you could actually taste the beef and the sausage. Lovely friendly... More

Visited here with family, including two children, one aged 6 and the other aged one. Staff were attentive and friendly but that's about all. The food was just ok. Both myself and my 6 year old nephew got a burger and chips. Both chips and burger looked like cheap frozen kind, not nice at all. My one yer old nephew... More

A party of 8 friends visited for lunch. This is a regular venue for us when we are in the Bamburgh area. There is always something on the menu to suit all tastes including vegetarian and there are always several specials on the board. I particularly like th butcher's steak pie and the fish is also popular with our party.
