Beautiful place and surroundings. Very efficient service and although my mam had a hair in her food it was dealt with discreetly and professionally and a new meal provided. Will definitely return.

Copious amounts of tea or coffee with afternoon tea can be throughly recommended for a treat.

We had a wonderful time at The Castle where we had Sunday lunch. It is such a great location and has been magnificently restored and maintained. It was great to see the waitresses in appropriate costume too.it was an extremely enjoyable experience and we look forward to a further visit,especially as it is only 15mins away from us.

Lovely afternoon tea - however we only ordered one to share between two of us with a extra scone as I think one each would have been too much! You could take it home though!

We received a warm welcome and we're shown to a lovely private table, which is what we had asked for. The food was excellent, really fresh and generous portion sizes. My husband was especially impressed with his main the Lumley beef, he said it was like butter and cooked perfectly. My salmon was beautiful, very moist. The ladies who served us were friendly but not over board, just right. Overall a lovely night! It was our 25 wedding anniversary, so very special and we felt we had a very special night, thank you

We were the only people in the restaurant having afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was nothing special, and my sandwiches were stuck together! We were only asked once if we wanted more tea, then never saw anyone else! We ended up just walking out after being ignored. Service was terrible and I will not be back. This was a birthday present from a friend and it was very disappointing.

I found the whole dining experience outstanding There was polite greetings and well mannered in attendance something you don't find very often 👌 My only draw back was my breakfast experience It seemed rushed and somewhat lacking the uniqueness of the meal the night before Maybe it was early morning madness or young staff finding there foot (we have all been there) this will not stop me returning to your great halls To dine with again

I had an ice cream with rosemary and raspberry jelly dessert. I did think the rosemary was rather overpowering, rather than a hint. If it was a banquet night I could understand the "serving wench" outfits, but they did look rather odd, when the male staff were not in similar garb. All in all, a fabulous evening and we will be back.

Very disappointed with the standard of the meal, the vegetables were tepid to cold and the meat was not particularly tasty. Expected better from an establishment such as this.
