We enjoyed our visit to the castle. We did feel a tiny bit shoe-horned in but the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Many visitors remark about the superb food and service, but what made us travel the distance we did to visit the Castle at Edgehill ? and twice this year with a stopover? It's the same reason people go to places like the Tower of London, Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon Avon and all the amazing historical places we enjoy in the UK.... More

Sunday lunch. Tried this 3 times now, and the portions have been increasingly disappointing each time. Before we paid, we were asked 'was everything ok?'. I said (as you asked) that 3 small roast potatoes, and a really small portion of vegetables (on all 4 meals) was a bit mean. I was just told I should have mentioned it at... More

we met a group of friends here and ate in the 'conservatory' room at the back of the pub/restaurant. It has stunning views from Edgehill down to villages and countryside in west Warwickshire. Really the view is jaw-dropping. We paid more than usual for our food. I guess you are also paying for the setting.

When we went to The Castle the view from where we sat was amazing. The food looked and tasted wonderful. The staff were kind and told us what specials they had on the menu that day. I really recommend a visit there if you can go. But I recommend to book online.

We did not stay, so cannot comment on the rooms, but we ate in the restaurant and it was pretty good; not amazing, but not bad at all. On the top of the ridge, looking west the views are marvellous.

Saturday evening meal was beautifully prepared and presented by delightful staff, but the menu was restricted and dare I say it - a little over-priced? However, a fascinating building and maybe that is what you are paying for.
