Lovely warm and cosy old-fashioned pub, especially on a dark October evening. Always seems to be busy whenever you enter, due perhaps to the wide menu of tasty, well presented food on offer, and the friendly atmosphere. Will deffo call in again when visiting Lydford.

About
Description
The Castle Inn is a traditional 16th-century inn situated in Lydford, on the Western slopes of Dartmoor National Park. Built in 1550, its plain pink exterior offers no clues as to what awaits you inside. It oozes More with character from every nook and cranny. The lamp-lit bar with low, bowed ceilings, many curios, slate floors and an open fire, the lovely snug with high backed settles and the charming restaurant with beamed ceiling. There is a pretty garden to the back of the inn with more seating and views of the castle. Whether you fancy a pint of Tribute and a chat with the locals, a quick bite to eat or a full meal, the the Castle Inn offers wonderful food and drink in comfortable and relaxing surroundings. Children are very welcome as are dogs on leads. Less

I can confirm from personal experience that this Inn is dog friendly. I don't know the answer to your other questions. Why not email them directly? I had a query and they answered.
