Returned to The Castle, had another amazing meal. Its so nice to find a traditional family run pub. We always meet up with friends here and we love it. The food is home cooked and always excellent, and the local ale is great. We can't wait to come back. Thank you once again

21 of my colleagues and I booked a table for lunch at this pub. Everyone enjoyed their lunch with the exception of 2 of us who ordered the same - a prawn baguette wih Marie Rose sauce. If you visit this pub, don't order this from the menu! Watery prawns, soggy bread and when I dared to complain and speak to the landlady, she shouted at me to go to the bar and get a 1 refund (it cost me 5.95) and said she wouldn't discuss it with me any longer and stormed off! Not a good attitude to customer service given that this is her business.

Not too impressed with the service (obviously). Have eaten here many times before and always enjoyed it. I'm sure it could be a lovely pub again, under different management.

Popped in for lunch on Sunday. Decent sized car park and welcoming Landlord(?). Had some tables reserved for diners, but a couple free and the bar area section was not reserved.

London Pride and Black sheep on, but third guest ale(?) pump empty. Believe they stock West Barkshire brews sometimes. The Black sheep was good tho.
The food was nice with a small, but interesting menu. When was the last time you saw faggots served in a pub?.

We returned last Friday, it was sooo busy!
Had another great meal, the steak & kidney pudding is out of this world and the homemade cheesecake was yummy.
Coming back for my birthday!

Visited this pub last week, and had a great evening. The atmosphere was great, the place is now run by a family who have only recently taken over. The food is home cooked and delicious. We will definately be going back
