Whether you are looking for a superb fresh coffee, a genuinely home cooked meal or a superior pint, we have it all here waiting for you. Come and relax in a warm, comfortable and friendly environment. Parking is easy and we gave a great family garden. In those cold winter evenings a log burner to take the chill away.

As a person who regularly frequents restaurants and pubs for food, on a daily basis, I must say that visiting this establishment was a totally unexpected treat. The food and service were absolutely first class as was the welcome from the gentleman behind the bar, who it turned out was the landlord. The presentation was way beyond the standard I would expect from a village pub and the quality and quantity of produce was impressive. I will most definately be visiting this place again and would recommend anyone in the area to take a detour to it.
Certaininly a Friday made all the more pleasant by unearthing this gem.

I go to the Castle of Comfort weekly and am never disappointed. It really is a proper pub. Gorgeous food, good beer and a landlord that really cares about his customers. The other staff members are always friendly and it's just generally a lovely place to wind down, particularly on a Friday night after work! Try the steak, it's perfect! Thank you Karl for the service you provide, you're a star :-)

Excellent food and service. The tower burger is great if you are really hungry. The children enjoyed the children's menu which included a drink and ice cream

Castle of Comfort is the best kept secret in the area. Forget all the fancy restaurants you can have a great meal here at a reasonable price.
If it's just a drink you want the beer is great too.
The staff are really friendly and helpful and Carl will always stop for a chat.
It's really important that we support these local businesses, as they say 'use it or lose it'.

On a recent walk we found that the pub in wield was closed so prodded on a bit further to Medstead where I know the pub has relatively recently changed hands. Glad we did, bacon, brie and cranberry baguette excellent, gooey and hot and a full (half) baguette long. We also had the sausage and onion jam baguette which was also brilliant. Good service too.
