“Great beer and good food”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

While staying in Newport recently we called in The Castle every night, they had a great selection of real ales to choose from served by friendly staff.
The food we had was nice and tasty too, the fish and chips was a good size and the chilli nice and plentiful, a nice garlic bread too.
On our next visit to Newport we'll definitely be back.

“Simply the best....!!!!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I, due to circumstances beyond our control, had to have an urgent and unplanned overnight stay in Newport, so called in at the Castle Inn. They had one room free which we took, and we were shown up to a large, attractive, clean and comfortable double room with on suite bathroom.
We got chatting to Julie and Nick, the owners, and I must have mentioned that we didn't have an overnight bag or toiletries with us, as we weren't expecting to stay the night.
Later on that evening, even though they were fully booked that night, they made room for us in their restaurant. The food was delicious as always (we had eaten there on previous occasions and have always been extremely impressed with the quality of the food and the very reasonable prices).
When we went up to our room at the end of the night, I was very touched to see that a small toilet bag had been put in our room which contained some essential toiletries, including toothbrushes and paste and deodorant.
After a good nights sleep... ( the beds are really comfortable...), we then had a first class cooked breakfast and were on our way...
I honestly don't think you could stay anywhere else, where you would be looked after so well, or have a couple who go the extra mile to make your stay more comfortable.... We were so impressed at their thoughtfulness and kindness.... It's a definite 10/10 from us...!!!

“A lovely meal”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We were looking for somewhere to have an evening meal on the Friday before bank holiday...so were worried we wouldn't get anywhere nice without a booking. Luckily this wasn't a problem here and the staff were very friendly, there were some nice touches like books and games available to keep kids (and adults!) occupied whilst waiting for food.....and the food was certainly worth the wait. We had lamb shank, steaks, and a burger, all of which were really well presented and tasted gorgeous. Therefore I had to try a dessert....and it was the tidiest...and probably the nicest...Eton Mess I have ever had. We were only holidaying in the area otherwise we'd happily be back as regulars.
