Stopped in here for a light evening meal and drinks with friends. Interesting pub with a varied menu and sizable specials board. Very knowledgeable barman on the local beers which were very good as recommended. Food was reasonably priced and very good all round.

The castle walks a fine line between being a locals pub and a tourist destination, and does it very well. The food is good, service is very friendly and and the atmosphere has a real buzz. Wish it was my local!

Just what you'd expect from pub dining, cheap and cheerful. Smiley bar staff, cosy surroundings. Not fine dining but just what we needed after a day on the beach! We'll be back !
