This places was taken over about 12 months ago and they have worked wonders. The lay out is first class. The staff are so friendly and know their stuff. They have fun special evening here, Burns night coming up. The food is first class and a little different. Only a couple of bedrooms but so beautifully decorated. The view is... More

We visited for a family gathering for my mum's 70th. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We had a great space for the little ones to spread out and the rest of the family to chat. The food was absolutely delicious and it's great that they stock the locally brewed Hooky ales. Would have been 5 stars except we... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We are all pleased that you enjoyed your visit. Apologises that we where down to one ale on Sunday. We closed on the Monday for a week, and due to keeping all the ale tip top we had to run it down. Good Ale down the drain would be a crime!. We work very... More

Called in at the Castle as we were visiting nearby Upton House for the Xmas events. Was attracted by the "quirky" old building with its towers, but was pleasantly surprised by the modern interior, complete with a lovely log fire. Friendly staff and a good selection of beers and a good menu offering bar and restaurant eating.We only stopped for... More

To begin I cannot comment on the hotel itself as I did not stay the night. The food; I ordered a steak, at £21 you expect high quality. The meat had a lot of fat on it. Additionally I had a piece of plastic wire inside my mushroom. Another family member ordered Chestnut Tart, despite the fair portion, it was... More

Came on a recommendation from a colleague and had an absolutely lovely evening. Everything was brilliant - from the food and drinks, to the service and friendly atmosphere - there is nothing to be faulted. We had a wonderful time and will be hurrying back soon!

Firstly, I cannot review the dining experience at The Castle because I did not eat there; I dined with friends at their hotel. I stayed at the Castle whilst attending a car Owners` Group meet at the British Motor Museum. The accommodation at the Castle is situated in two quirky and attractive towers. I dare say the view from the... More

Thank you for your review. I am disappointed that you didn't enjoy your stay in the Sir Edmund Verney room. You are quite correct the room does lack windows, but due to the nature of the building, this is not something that we can change. This room is let out at least 5 times a week, and is enjoyed by...
