Unfortunately the meal was very disappointing. I ordered the calves liver. It was over cooked and therefore chewy. Calves liver should be melt in the mouth. It actually came with 3 large individual Yorkshire puddings! Another mistake. Plus bacon and a marrow gravy. No green veg. My friend ordered the lamb hot pot. Again, this came as shredded lamb which was edible but the sliced potato topping looked insipid and uninviting. We did mention this to our server but it fell on deaf ears!

Normally one of my favorite places to drink.... Service was super slow and some of the bar staff were unfriendly, aggressive and rude. It was my leaving drinks after 10 years of working with my employer and we wanted to have a great night. We were stuffed in a corner, then shouted at for blocking entrances!

My wife and I are away from family for the festive season this year, so we were excited for our Christmas lunch at The Castle. Unfortunately it didn't really live up to our expectations. The staff were friendly, and the decor was nice but the food let the whole thing down. Which is a shame, because on paper it looked lovely. And at £60 a head, not including alcohol, you'd expect something a little special at the very least. My duck croquette starters were cooked well, with a really nice texture, but the flavour was lacking, and the whole dish tasted bland. I was able to help my wife's quinoa salad a little with the addition of some walnuts off my plate, but she had similar issues with her starter too. Nice texture, but not enough flavour. On to the mains. The turkey was cooked really well, nice and moist, and the gravy was really tasty. The potatoes were perfect, and went well with both meals, crispy on the outside fluffy on the inside. Then I cut into my pie... Stone cold. So disappointing, and it really did throw off the rest of the meal for us. We had agreed to share beforehand at least, so I didn't have to watch my wife eat her meal while I waited for my replacement pie to come out, but it just wasn't the same. We asked for a plate to be brought out, but our server got distracted, and we had to ask again before a spare arrived at our table. It also felt like they were avoiding our table because of the food hiccup. The staff did comp me a free pint of beer and my wife got given a glass of bubbles, which she turned down as she was drinking a wine to go with her meal (with nothing else was offered to her after that) as an apology, which was nice, but not really enough to be honest. One of those things you just expect not to happen when everything is per-ordered and everyone has a set time to be in and out of their seats by. My desert was the winner on the day for me, the whiskey tart had a great taste to it, not overpowering, but you could still feel the whiskey going down. The pear tart was good, but again lacked the flavour kick we were after. All in all rather disappointing for an Xmas day feast. Toby. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-25

First of all - big shoutout to the staff this eve- all very helpful and super friendly! Would have been nice if we didn't have to wait for the soups - and the mains didn't arrive on time which meant other dishes got cold. It's tricky with a big group of course and we were all in great spirits so did not want to complain too much, however it may be something to think about in the future :) Thanks for having us!

We had a great client gathering at The Castle. The staff were super helpful and friendly, which was really lovely. Mulled wine was yummy as was the food I had! Only thing that there was not much on the menu that was vegan, so perhaps that could be a consideration for the future :) Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-18

Got there at 7pm and said I was there specifically for the cheeseboard and no one told us they had run out until just before 9pm when all the pub kitchens in the area close on Sundays. Had already ordered a few pricey drinks by then too, which we wouldn't have done if we had known. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-10-22

I asked to reserve an area for 24 people - and was given a table for about 10 people! The party sat at opposite ends of the pub for 1 round of drinks, then we decided to leave and go to another pub around the corner. The pub is nice but certainly didn't cater for our needs.

Our actual experience on the place was great. They have good sounds, the drinks was well to be expected. The food is great as well. The waiters were very attentive and courteous. The terrace was perfect too, not to much people that night I guess. We liked it so much we ended up the last two people there apart from the staff. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-08-29

We booked for 20 and were set up inside - on arrival I requested to be moved to the roof terrace - the male waiter said yes but the female waiter's reply was unhappy because they would have to relay the table....which I assume is their job and what they are paid for? Not very customer service minded. The food wasnt great given the price and we sent one back because the portion was tiny. The waitress serving us food was really helpful and couldnt do enough, and one of our group saw her being shouted at by the chef (which is unprofessional) so even more praise to her not taking it out on the customers. Great roof terrace area though. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-07-30

Been to this excellent pub several times and never leave disappointed. From the beautiful decoration, the amazing terrace to the superb service this is definitely the place to be. Either for lunch\dinner due to the delicious food or for an afternoon\night out drinking with friends the customer service will never disappoint. As a regular customer, I must refer a boy called Kamil and a lady called Anja for always welcoming me so well.

The table was very cramped for 4 people eating a meal.

Unfortunately we were not happy with all of our meals. We didn't want to make a fuss and spoil our day but we didn't enjoy The following meals; fish and chips- it was too greasy and the fig Bakewell tart- it was nothing like we imagined and none of us finished it or enjoyed it. I don't think we will be eating at the castle again. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-07-16

Upon arrival we were told by the Deputy Manager that although we had chosen an option on the online booking form for the terrace, this was not possible and therefore had space inside only. When we asked if we could simply push two tables together on the terrace we were told no. Seeing our looks of disappointment, one staff member then offered us additional chairs so that we could sit on the terrace although 10 people around a table for four was a squash it was better than the Deputy Manager's complete unhelpfulness. Suggest the online form is changed to avoid further disappointment. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-06-01

Took q long time to pour simple drinks order - three diet cokes, an orange juice and a soda and lime. Wouldn't otherwise warrant criticism. The wrong food order was then brought to the table. Took about 5 minutes for the waiter to rectify, whilst the food was going cold. The Caesar salads were not very good. There was a lot leaf and way too much dressing. It came with anchovies, which were not in the description on the menu, and there was no cheese in it. Three shandies were then ordered which were served soda water instead of lemonade. Previously I've been here and it was good but seems to have gone quite a lot downhill. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-05-27

Great service from Anna! Thank you. I would only suggest to ask for a credit card behind the bar rather than assume and open a tab without one This created complications as some members were adding drinks, they left and did not pay ( assuming the company were paying for it all) . It wasn't fair on the one's that stayed behind and ended up paying for it.. All in all. I would definitely be back ! Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-05-05

Went on Saturday for my Birthday - nice pub, great roof terrace, reasonably priced drinks.

The staff were nice and there was a good wine list. Let down by the food a bit which was a bit oily and heavy, although it was a good menu. The lentil salad had a lot of oil. The haddock could have done with a better balance of greens (ie more) and a bit less creamy sauce and did not need the addition of deep fried kale on the top which added to the grease. It was good but requires just a tweak to make it great. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2017-01-21

Poor. Extremely rude waitress who was flippant and angry from the start. She also messed up our starter order. The food was greasy flavorless pub grub - no way near gastropub standards.

Shocking lunch, Dined with a party of 8, all of which ordered from the Sunday roast menu. The roasts arrived stone cold and were then taken away and obviously microwaved one by one then brought back to the table. The food tasted like a microwave meal, soggy Yorkshires, soggy roast potatoes just really average and hugely disappointing for the price. We complained and the staff were nice enough to remove the food from the bill but it was still a shit experience. We were catching up with old friends and this really ruined it, all eating average microwaved food one by one... Don't think we'll be eating there ever again.

Friendly staff, quick service(not too busy as it was a Monday night). The table was the right size for the booking, they offered we could open a tab which was good training on their side. Good location of the table booked. Music was audible but not too loud so we could chat. Pork pies were good. London pricing for drinks but that's London.

Booked a table for lunch for 8 people for my birthday. Gorgeous weather so managed to get a table on the roof terrace (wasn't reserved one on terrace despite requesting on booking). Sat down to be told they were short staffed so we would be quicker going up and ordering food and drink from the bar. When we did it was met with very rude staff. We were then told that the cooker was going to take at least another 30 minutes to start warming up despite it already being 1.30pm...! In the end we gave up and managed to get a table with friendly service and gorgeous food from the Pig and Butcher down the road. It all seemed very disorganised with very grumpy staff, a shame as looks a nice pub. Visited The Castle - Geronimo Inns on 2016-08-13

The best thing about this pub is the rooftop terrace! When the weather is nice it's one of the nicest places to have a drink without being squashed. Great location and great service.
