Visited for the first time for 3 course Sunday dinner. Thought the food was outstanding and the table was full with more than we could eat. Would recommend to anyone

9 plates of food, 6 different meals, we will be back! Best food I've tasted in a long time. We just had mains today, but will return to try a full menu.

Visited quite a few times over the years and always very accommodating and good food. Just visited on a quiet Friday night and food was the best yet - is there a new chef? Super attentive staff. Great evening - thank you!

My wife and I called in here for lunch today 28/10/2016, we had never been before but we were passing so we thought we would try it. Never again, we were a little early so we had a drink and a look around, the restaurant area looked very nice but we were asked to sit in the lounge. As it... More

Really enjoyed a brilliant Sunday lunch here with family. I had roast lamb and this was beautifully cooked. Other family members had beef, chicken and pork, I can honestly say that there were lots of empty plates. Plenty of vegetables, gravy and huge Yorkshire puddings, good value as well

Mediocre food that arrived cold, served in a freezing cold room. We mentioned this to the manageress when she came to clear the table and her customer service skills were horrific! Enough to make my grandma cry! She should be ashamed and should not be running a restaurant!

We have visited the castle eden inn quite afew times over the years and have always been happy but over the past 6 -9 months we have noticed a downhill trend of service and the food hasn't been as good as it has been before. It came to a head on Sunday when we had a 2 1/2 hour Sunday... More

There isn't really much to say. Only been here once and will not be returning. Overpriced and poor quality of food and the quanity of it ! It's suppose to be a pub not a 5 star gourmet restaurant! Bad bad bad
