Lamb rump

The Castle restaurant is welcoming and contemporary allowing guests plenty of room to dine and chat. Our offering consists of fresh, local produce and features traditional and modern dishes showcasing some of the best ingredients from the garden of England. Our food is expertly prepared and presented thanks to Head Chef Jacob and the rest of the team. To complement our food we have a knowledgeable front of house team, lead by Lizzy, who are always on hand to ensure a memorable dining experience.


Starter Menu

Our starter menu offers a delightful introduction to your meal, but can also be used in the style of a tapas menu. Selecting a few smaller plates for yourself or to share is a great way to dine. Choose a nibbling pot of olives and sundried tomatoes, spicy glazed chicken wings, freshly made arancini balls or one of our sharing boards. If you are in the mood to indulge try our house speciality: the Three Cheese Fondue with glazed ham & crusty bread.

Lunch Menu

The lunch menu offers classic English dishes such as beer battered fish & chips and honey roasted ham with egg and chips. Or choose a delicious ploughman’s lunch with local cheeses & honey roasted ham. We also offer a selection of sandwiches ranging from a classic sausage and caramelised onion to Asian steamed buns filled with sticky Korean pulled pork.

Main Menu

The main menu is served all day and features a wide range of options, from our Castle burger, made in-house using dry-aged beef, to more adventurous options incorporating influences from around the world. Current menu highlights include a Tandoori spiced lamb rump with masala sauce, a vegan Korean bibimbap and a sticky glazed chicken supreme with sweetcorn puree and textures of chorizo.


Dessert Menu

If you fancy a sweet treat to top off your experience we offer a wide variety of homemade desserts, from the rich chocolate brownie to lighter options such as a coconut panna cotta or our own take on an Eton Mess during the summer months or a warming sticky toffee or dark chocolate and marmalade bread and butter pudding in the colder months.  


If you like to scoff cheese & port then you’ve come to the right place, there are few establishments that can compete with the standard of our cheeseboards, accompanied by a selection of crackers, pickles, olives & your choice of chutneys. Choose your board, cheese, chutney and maybe a decanter of port if you wish.

To us this means: quality meat from the local butcher; large homemade Yorkshire pudding served with every meat; sausage, sage and onion stuffing; a good selection of seasonal vegetables; cauliflower cheese; roast parsnips glazed with honey during the winter; tasty roast potatoes cooked in meat juices & rosemary from our garden and all finished with our secret gravy.
