We stayed in Corfe Castle for a short stop and enjoyed dining at The Castle Inn. Food was delicious and reasonably priced, very attentive and friendly staff. We will be back again if in the area. A lovely evening.

Lovely food. Great service. Very homely inside. The sandwiches where very large and this place will get a repeat visit. Very happy.
