My friend suggested coming here as it's only down the road from us both. I had never been but she highly recommended it. I had the Caesar salad and we shared Camembert to start - which I have to say is the best I've ever...More

This is really our local traditional pub, why you may ask? Well it's down a country lane, rustic inside with good cooked wholesome food. Lovely fire roaring away, locals have friendly chatter. Lovely choice of ales and good wine. My wife had really well cooked...More

My husband and I have often visited the Castle for either a couple of drinks or Sunday lunch and there has always been a buzz about the place. However the recent refurbishment seems to have lost the cosy, atmospheric, traditional British pub feeling. There are...More
