Twas the middle of the day & looking for somewhere to have lunch so we stopped offat the Castle eden inn & we were not disappointed. If you're looking for great value for money food, excellent service and pleasant surroundings then this is the place I recomend the LITE BITE MENU during the day & main menu for evening both large portions & yes the real home made chips are to die for.

Thank Tom P

Arrived at 12.45pm. After over an hour of waiting we asked if our food was due as customers who came in after us, had eaten and left. Clearly we had been forgot about. They were busy, but a useful tip would have to warned customers of the significant delays, so the customer could decide if they want to wait or not for food. We were so delayed we ended up cancelling a commitment we had that afternoon.
Food was poor. Mince was cold and veg barely cooked. The curry sauce on the other dish was over the top, tasting entirely of coconut, which I personally hate. Certainly wasn't worth the wait. Very disappointment. This is the second time we have been in 6 months, and we had a poor experience the first time, but thought it could have been a bad day, and we will give it another go. Certainly won't be back anymore

Having had a lovely Sunday lunch last year and heard so many positive comments we ventured back for a family midweek lunch. Dirty tables, filthy glasses, greasy, cold food with more fryer debris and burnt ends than edible chips, cold sides and the 'salad' was thick white lettuce stalk with a token gesture of greenery and wafer thin cucumber slices. No checkback, in fact no staff to be seen for dust once our food was dumped so I couldn't even let them know how dissatisfied we were. We won't be rushing back which is a shame as we were very tempted to book for christmas lunch on the back of our Sunday lunch.

Stopped by for a Sunday Lunch on Fathers Day and on a very busy day discovered the roast lunch to be very tasty, well presented, plentiful and nice and hot. Really enjoyed the food and comfy surroundings and is on the list as return to Sunday Lunch venue. Very nice.
