“Another lovely meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Went here with friends Friday evening and although we have been here before it has only been lunchtime, but it did not disappoint us, lovely atmosphere staff are happy and friendly and nothing is too much trouble, we all had 3 courses all of the food was really good, vegetable were fresh and cooked just right, we all had a mixture of meat and fish and the sweets were divine!
All good value for money.

This was the first visit for our friends and they thought it was a great find and like us will be back again.

“Excellent food and the Pud was to die for!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I visited The Castle Inn in Bungay at the weekend, we all ordered the lovely Roast Beef, although normally 2 of us are fish people. They asked if we would like the beef well done or pink which was very nice indeed. We thoroughly enjoyed the main course, the yorkshire pud was gorgeous, just like my mother made, could have done with an extra roast potatoe because they were gorgeous as well. We were then invited to try a dessert, now there was something special. We simply did not know which lovely dessert to try, well two of us decided on the fabulous mille feurre with raspberries, strawberries, cream etc, etc. Now when the dessert appeared before us it was stupendous, one didn't really want to put one's fork into it at all!! Well, I can tell you this dessert was really superb, the pastry was so very very light as a feather and everything about it was simply the best, I wish I had taken a picture of the pudding with my phone it was so lovely. One just did not want to finish it but I can honestly say, hand on heart, their desserts looked marvellous but this one had it all I have to say. The coffee is very good indeed and one can have just a coffee with a lovely little piece of chocolate torte with a strawberry on top which the other person had on our table. I have been for light lunches to The Castle Inn and they have been very good too, ie soups and salads. I shall look forward to visiting The Castle Inn again and, hopefully, have the gorgeous mille feurre again. You will not be disappointed in this Inn when you visit for a meal. There was also some very nice music being played and sung from a couple in the dining room. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambience at The Castle Inn and the staff are very caring towards you. Do try this lovely eating place. Drusi Drus from Hingham

“Nice day in the garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

It was one of those lovely spring days as we walked along Earsham Street wondering where to have lunch and decided to give the Castle a go as we had not been there before. We were very nicely welcomed and given a table in the garden complete with sunshade. I had a pint of Victoria Bitter from Earl Soham which was excellent and to eat the Innkeepers Platter which was interesting, excellent and to be recommended; my wife had the chicken and bacon casserole which she too said was very good. There were several other diners in the garden that day and all in all we had a very good lunch and would certainly return. The owners were away we were told so they should be proud of the staff they had left in charge.
