user reviews of the Castle Hotel, Eynsford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The hotel has recently been refurbished to a high standard. It is a beautiful building and the new decor is bright and modern but with Eynsford castle opposite the hotel also now has a subtle medieval / castle theme. There is free WIFI throughout and the function room provides a carvery at weekends. The bar sells real ales and you can get coffee, snacks or full meals all day. All of the rooms will be refurbished by the new year to provide ensuites with flat screen TV's.

It's not a place I'd choose to frequent, but I have to say that on the basis of one rather fleeting visit, it didn't seem quite as bad as some of these reviews make it seem.
It does have a distict 'character' of its own; I'm not sure I like it, and I certainly can't define it - but the place definitely isn't the soulless clone that too many pubs have become.
On the plus side, it has a nice open fire, and the Spitfire was very good (though sadly the only cask beer availabe when we were there).
On the other side -very loud music.

This is our neighbours local pub and though we'd give it a try although not our usual type of establishment. I'd like to say we were pleasantly surprised, but we weren't. The beer is average, the food the same, but more importantly the atmosphere is non existent unless you fancy a fight when i'm sure there would be plent of takers.

What a dump! Not friendly in any shape or form. Dark and dingy with a 80s feel.

The Castle is handily placed in this picturesque village and is very appealing from the outside. The interior is a large single knocked through room with an abundance of fake hops hanging from the rafters and over the bar. Several prints and pictures mainly with a boxing theme adorn the walls although I am not sure what the connection is. Beers are from the Shepherd Neame range and tasted decent enough. There is a pool table and rear screen projection TV (showing dodgy Arabic football channels). On the face of it all sounds very accommodating however, on our visit, the place was crawling with screaming kids running around virtually unsupervised. Some of the locals populating the bar also left something to be desired and their impromptu singing talents were rather grating. Whether I called at a bad time I don�t know but we didn�t feel the need to stay too long, especially when there are other decent pubs a short spew away.
