We ate here as we were staying. Food very good but thought the cheese and biscuits was a bit mean for the price. Good choice of vegetarian options. We ate in the oak panelled dining room which was lovely but there are tables in the...More

Visited with family for an impromptu lunch. The staff were very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. A perfect balance. We all had hot sandwiches which were delicious! Some other very tempting items on the menu, that we'll be back to sample!

Food was below what I would have expected from a hotel of this standard. The hotel was given plenty of notice that we required gluten free meals and the menu stated that most meals could be adapted, but in reality there were only a couple...More

If you want to eat out in Bishops Castle look no further - Shropshire has a long history of culinary excellence. Shrewsbury has a plethora of good restaurants, and Ludlow is just down the road, which for a time boasted more Michelin starred restaurants than London itself! We don‘t do Michelin at The Castle, but we certainly use many of the same local suppliers. We’re spoilt for them actually. What we aim to produce is modern, good pub food that is healthy, hearty, flavoursome & fresh at great value of course. And you’ve a wide choice of places to eat at The Castle. Each of the three bars has its own individual character, some with open fires, some with terraces out into the garden. Or try our oak panelled restaurant, believed to feature in the Mary Webb novel “The House in Dormer Forest”. And when the weather is warm, & remember it’s always sunny in Shropshire, our south facing gardens with terrace & raised fish ponds provide the perfect spot for a light repast and a cooling beverage.
