Wow I can't praise this little place enough. A real traditional and cosy pub with fantastic friendly and attentive staff. The meal (the set 3 course Christmas menu) was superb. Clearly all home-cooked and fresh. Can't fault any of it and would definitely recommend.

Me and my wife got married here in the summer and without being cliche it was the best day ever. We hired the whole garden and campsite and partied the day and night away and even pitched up and spent our first night as a married couple in our bell tent followed by an awesome cooked breakfast the next morning....

My wife and I decided to visit The Castle Inn on Wednesday evening and were pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the welcome and quality of food. We can not understand why it is so far down the ratings? The young lady behind the bar was excellent (she was keeping the fire burning, serving drinks, taking orders, serving food) not... More

Two of us went there on a Friday lunchtime. Very nicely done up inside, log fire burning and good atmosphere. A large family group were having a really nice time and I could hear them saying how brilliant the food was. We chose from the specials board and both had Beef Bourguignon which was absolutely delicious. I'd definitely recommend eating... More

Revisited the Castle to find that it had been taken over by new owners and a brand new chef in place. Great choice of different food which was cooked, presented and served well. The restaurant part of the pub is very clean and modern. Definitely worth a revisit.

Great place for a light lunch or evening dinner. We visited during our trip to the castle and stopped for a light lunch (well I did anyway, he was distracted by the scampi). Great service and friendly staff. Food was delicious and there was a great choice of beers, including some for their beer festival and Halloween specials.

Lovely pub experience at the end of stage 9 of the Essex Way. Food was amazing - we had homemade chicken kiev with chips and cauliflower cheese and a sausage and mash. Both were stunning and served with style. We met the landlady and she made us and our two dogs feel very welcome. Would return in a flash.
