Promised a family meal and chose here, I wish I hadn’t, food was slow coming out, and served ice cream in a jam jar? What is that all about? Sorry but we were disappointed and won’t be returning.

We called here with our 2 young children whilst on a family holiday locally. We were not disappointed. The burgers were delicious, proper meaty beef with tasty accompaniments. Reasonably priced too. We would certainly eat here again 😊

The Castle is the only pub in the center of a large attractive village with good passing traffic. It should be so much better! Didn't get to eat so can't comment on food or service but having stopped for drinks there would probably not bother....More
