My partner and I have just returned from an overnight stay here, and it certainly didn't dissappoint. After a long drive we were greeted by very friendly welcoming staff. The room (number 2) was large, clean and well equiped.
We ate there early in the evening before is started to get busy. Service was quick, and the food was excellent (fish & chips and chicken & ham pie), the pub offers a very good menu with a good mix of pub classics. There are also lots of very good local ales on offer, as well as an extensive wine list. After dinner we noticed that the 2 leather armchairs in front of the fire had become available, and before we could move a member of staff, seeing what we were about to do, quickly picked up our drinks and took them over to the fireside table for us. Its not often you get service that good!
One of the major selling points for the pub is its breakfast policy - they serve breakfast until noon! That allowed us and the other guests the luxury of a late lie in. Breakfast itself was, much like the previous evenings food, of a very high standard. Since the bar was empty at that time of day we were able to occupy the fireside armchairs again!
We were both really very happy with The Castle Inn, and hope to return. The one slight bit of criticism I have, we would have appreciated slightly larger towels in the room, but that is such a small gripe when considering the overall weekend.
