A most successful first visit to the Castle Inn on the recommendation of several friends. Imaginative menu, delicious food, mostly locally sourced, friendly and relaxed service (despite the fact the place was busy) and good disabled facilities in the bar/bistro. It was a happy visit and a great way to start 2014.

I was at the Castle Inn yesterday (19th October 2013) with the rest of my family to celebrate my Mother and Father's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I can't praise the venue for everything, they were helpful, pleasant and to top it off the food standard was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone. The selection of the menu was...

Luckily we had booked for lunch as this place was very busy,we were attended too quickly and pleasantly,order was taken and the food was really nice,the staff cleared up as soon as a table became vacant. If there was a fault we felt we were rushed out at 2.30 though we don't think the place closed.

We had two nights at the Castle Inn on the 21st and 22 August after hearing about it from their sister restaurant ZITTOS in North Berwick,[ which also has first class service and fab food]. In both places all staff made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. At the Castle our bedroom was large and very...

The bedroom was fairly large with a good size comfortable double bed, double wardrobe and flat screen tv. The ensuite even had a jacuzzi bath, although never tried it. The breakfasts on both mornings were...

My daughter (16) and I had an excellent lunch in this inn in Dirleton, in the beer garden which was clean and tidy and a lovely location for a summer al fresco meal. The bar staff were very helpful and courteous. The food was delicious and although not cheap was well worth what we paid. The toilets were clean. I...

Grandma, Gramps, Son, Daughter-in-Law, plus Archie (5) and Charlie (3) had lunch yesterday at this welcoming pub in Dirleton after some fun on the nearby beach at Yellow Craigs. Service was very good including immediate rearrangement of tables to accompany six hungry beachcombers in the bar. The staff quickly served the boys' lunch and our plates were not far behind....

Stayed here for one night on a golfing break and was treated to friendly, down to earth service from Alan and the rest of the staff. The bar/restuarant has great atmosphere, the food combined quality and quantity plus there was a good selection of malt whiskies.
