I had been looking forward to the Ryde Castle reopening after the devastating fire that swept through it, and today went and had lunch with a girl friend on the third day of business. The restaurant was packed out but we were more than happy to sit in the bar, and is where we would have sat anyway. It was also busy in there, but with some empty tables and a very nice atmosphere. Our fellow diners were friendly and chatty and we felt like 'regulars'... We received a very warm welcome from the reception staff and another from the bar person. It was around 1.30 when we ordered and found that our first choice of main course had run out. No problemo! Our second choice was for fish and chips and we were not disappointed. The batter was light and crisp and the fish flaky and tasty. We had a truly enjoyable visit and cant wait to go back. We inquired about holding our office Christmas party there but the party nights, with entertainment, were already sold out!! Too bad. Toooo bad.
