Welcome to the Castle of Comfort at Medstead. In our traditional county pub we have a great range of bitters, ciders, lager & quality ales as well as a range of fine wines to suit all tastes. Whether you are looking for a superb fresh coffee, a genuinely home cooked meal or a superior pint, we have it all here waiting for you. Karl & Claire invite you to come and relax in a warm, comfortable and friendly environment. Parking is easy and we gave a great family garden. In those cold winter evenings a log burner to take the chill away.
