Having just arrived in Force Castle we called in for a drink. The barman was courteous and friendly. As the ales were different to home I sampled one of the beers after explaining my choice of beer and then enjoyed the one selected. My wife...More

We ate here twice while on holiday in Corfe Castle. Both times the food was very good. In particular the steaks were probably the best we've ever had. They weren't cheap but they were excellent. This pub is very popular and I would recommend that...More

Another delicious meal at the Castle. What better way to finish a lovely day out with a faultless delicious Birthday meal. Could not fault the food or the service. Thank you.

Very friendly, great food. We enjoyed it so much that we returned for a second meal. It's a tiny place, so make a reservation!

We popped in for a quick drink on our way for an evening meal. It's definitely an eating pub as opposed to a drinking pub and we felt quite in the way as the weather wasn't good enough to sit outside (nice big garden). Lots...More

The Castle Inn is the quintessential English pub. It's not overdone to look like some fancy bistro that wants to pretend it's a pub. It's a pub that happens to serve some of the finest desserts I've ever had the pleasure of eating. We ate...More

Hi, me my partner & his mum are coming to wareham area from 8th-11th of may for her birthday & I’m just having a quick look into where we could grab something to eat (snacks/dinner). We are Vegan (do not eat any animal product – meat/fish/eggs/dairy/gelatin etc). Is there anything you can offer us if we were to pop in for a drink & a quick bite/dinner? Anything is fine, something filling & full of flavour is ideal 😊 dessert always a bonus! Also his mum is gluten free, but she eats meat so is usually easier to accommodate. I am also wondering if you know about your drinks (as some pubs don’t) if you have any suitable wines/ales (without isinglass/milk added) could you email me a response please, ren DOT young AT aol DOT c o. DOT u k Thanks in advance & kindest regards. Ren.

Both the Greyhound and the Castle in Corfe Castle have extensive menus which cater for all. I am sure the Bankes Arms does too but haven't been recently so can't say for certain. You won't go hungry in Corfe Castle. There... More

No loud / live music when we stayed. Peaceful in the rear annex. The road is very busy so I could imagine a room at the front will be traffic noisy.

They don't have a website as far as I know. They are a pub with a restaurant in it.
