We went mid-week to this restaurant with family and friends. The fabulous selection on the menu meant that we struggled to choose items from the menu.

Wines by the carafe, a really varied menu from sandwiches to pork fillet with dauphinois potatoes or a platter of saucisson, salt beef, ham, three cheeses, home made chutney, olives, salad, hummus and crusty bread....

Following the recent comment by AA Gill in the Sunday Times we crossed over the border from Norwich and popped in to the Castle Inn after a walkabout around this lovely old market Town. And what a great find. On a hot day we sat in the shade of a magnificent Indian Bean Tree, choose from a menu which would...

The food here is really good, it's centrally situated in Bungay and they have a lovely outdoor seating area which is perfect on warm summer evenings. There is a good choice of food to suit all tastes and they're happy to tweak dishes to your liking, a very pleasant dining experience
