Description

One of Tootings oldest pubs, The Castle has been part of the Young’s estate since 1832 and has an exciting history; American film actor, director and producer, John Wayne is known for frequenting The Castle in the 1940s. In the 1970s, the pub had an excellent reputation for live music and hosted the ‘Tooting Blues Club’. 

They have a contemporary yet cosy area at the front of the pub for relaxed drinks, meeting friends after work or just whiling away the hours. Behind the main bar, there are two gleaming Meantime ‘Brewery Fresh’ tanks that not only look impressive, but dispense fresh lager straight to the bar for you to try.

Their smart Restaurant area leads into the bright airy conservatory room known as The Orangery, both of which provide fantastic spaces to enjoy their fantastic food with full table service. A sociable Chef’s Table, opposite the kitchen pass is perfect for small drinks parties, dining and tasting events. They have a beautiful, big beer garden with a patio and al fresco dining options. In addition, there are eight heated huts with seating, two of which have their own fires and drink fridges.

The food is ok but the service is horrendous. Firstly we waited for ten mins before anyone came to take a drinks order. The waitress didn't bring the water until we had finished our meal! The waitress did not know anything about the menu as we had to ask questions due to one guest being allergic to nuts. Took us so long to order a dessert and then it came incorrect. Whilst the waitresses argued about what was going on next to our table we waited for our correct order to be told 5 mins later it was no longer available. When paying the bill she did not listen and we paid 35p extra per card a minor amount but annoying when I asked for my receipt I was told I could not have one. The table next to us complained about the wait on their food and left yet the staff still served their food and drinks which sat for at least half an hour on an empty table. I don't recommend coming here for a Sunday dinner if you don't have time or patience. visited The Castle Tooting on 09 Jul 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hello Miss RKP Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback and please allow me to apologise for your delays. We had a busy service with late arrivals which threw out our best intentions to space out the orders. Hope you'll give us another chance soon as our new waitresses master their service.

Great celebration for my son's 30th - was a very busy night & staff brought out food & cake at the right time. Particular thanks to John, I think that's his name ,who took the food order earlier in the day, and enquired how everything was going during the evening. Very courteous & charming! My only issue is the very long wait for drinks- we opened a tab at the beginning and that worked very well. Would have been great to continue ordering from the restaurant bar but we were told this couldn't happen without a tab. visited The Castle Tooting on 08 Jul 2017

Food as delicious however by an hour and 25 minutes after arriving we had only had out starters. It all took too long the kitchen simply couldn't cope. visited The Castle Tooting on 09 Jul 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi There Sundays are very popular and we do our best to stagger the orders flowing into the kitchen. Sadly we had several bookings which arrived later than advised which put extra strain on our resources. Glad you enjoyed the food and hope you were advised of the waiting times and will be able to forgive us. Best wishes Chris Kemp GM

We had a great time at the castle. I have now been to the castle 6 or 7 times and each time I find the staff friendly, helpful and welcoming. I have not had a proper meal there yet but I have had food from the bar snacks menu and they have always been delicious.

Hi Chris, I appreciate you pointing out that it was indeed pancetta in the dish and not bacon as I originally claimed, albeit a slightly patronising point to make. I also appreciate that (as I believe you are inferring), pancetta is more expensive than it's bacon counterpart. However, in such small quantities (2 slices), this equates to approximately 28p difference per dish, so I'm not sure that I can take that as an excuse for the £15 price tag. It is also good to know that there were anchovies in the sauce. Although again, at £15 a pop I'm sure you can understand that I would have appreciated a few more than 3 on the actual plate, as one would assume from the description of the meal on the menu. It wouldn't be out of the question to offer a review of anything preventing an unhappy customer from a second visit. Perhaps some customer service training? Just a thought. Many thanks. In Response to; Unfortunately, we all found the food to be over priced (£15 for a small pice of chicken, 2 slim pieces of bacon and 3 anchovies on some iceberg lettuce?!). The service was also very slow and inattentive. Disappointing visit all in all. Hi There Thanks for your comments and sorry you didn't have an enjoyable time with us. We do use quality ingredients such as the chicken which is corn fed and free range, the bacon is actually pancetta and there are plenty of anchovies in the Caesar sauce. There's no excuse for the slow service so would love to hear more about this. Please feel free to email us at The Castle to provide more information. Kind regards Chris Kemp GM

I love the place and the vibe there, especially in the summer, good place to be. but renting a mini castle, its a bit expensive. You would expect better service, assigned waiter for the party considering you pay for your rental. And its not cheap. Service was really bad, waiting time at least 30min for your cocktails, I wasn't impressed. I had to go and check every time if my drinks were being prepared.All I got from the waitress was "sorry my English is not good" so I couldn't even communicate my problem to her. visited The Castle Tooting on 01 Jul 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to review us. Remember you don't have to rent a private mini castle as we have lots of other spaces for free so to say it's expensive after paying for it seems a tad unfair. We were very busy on Saturday and the Cocktail shack was in high demand, and as one knows, cocktails do take some time to make. I hope this didn't dampen your day. Anyway, I'm glad you love us really and do hope you'll be back soon for more of our Castle vibe! Best wishes Chris Kemp GM

She certainly loves being there and hosting London's 1st ever pop up bake off so am surprised you thought this. She is very strict though so maybe you just misread her.

Three of us came for a meal in the dining room at 7.45. It was very busy outside but very few diners in the restaurant. We ordered a shared starter by about 8pm only to be told after 10 mins that it was not available. We re-ordered but it took another 20 mins to get the starter. The main course did come more quickly. We did speak to the manager who was very polite, did apologise for the delay and provided us with a free dessert - well done but we would have preferred our meal about an hour earlier and could not understand why it was all so slow! visited The Castle Tooting on 20 Jun 2017

I have had some good lunches at the Castle and decided to try it on a Saturday evening. It started well. I orded the pork collar which was very good. My wife ordered the Chicken Ceasar salad which sadly was below par. Over cooked chicken, unimaginative and a bad use of fried anchovies, the side order of chips were also overcooked and broke into tiny pieces. As the night wore on the dining area became full of people who had been drinking outside (hottest day of the year) and the atmosphere changed considerably. The highlight of the night was my wife queuing in the unisex toilets and a crashing noise coming from one of the cubicles. The participants had been locked inside and smashed the door off its hinges to get out. Two men came out of the cubicle (one a member of staff). No problem but not conducive to a night out with reasonably expensive food prices. Avoid at night. visited The Castle Tooting on 17 Jun 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi Thanks for taking the time to review us. Just wanted to feed back that you can't change a Caesar Salad as it would no longer be a Caesar and the anchovies are certainly not fried! - Gross The crashing noise was my staff member trying to repair the lock on the door with the assistance of the customer who had reported a problem with the lock. The door is still on it's hinges so unsure what your wife was meaning. Price is always relative to the individual, but I appreciate your feedback anyway. Kind regards Chris Kemp GM

The place is great, big back garden, good service on behalf of the staff. Prices are not great though in terms of food. I can understand high prices for good places as this one, but the amount of food in a meal and food quality does not match the price you are paying for here. You are quite tempted to go first for dinner in a more fairly place and then visit the castle afterward only for the drinks. If it were up to me I would find the way to offer a bigger meal for the same price, or I would reduce slightly the price offering the same meal. It would still be an expensive price, but also a fair one. visited The Castle Tooting on 02 Jun 2017

A nice place but drinks are far to expensive for tooting, the mini castle's are fantastic but charging £50 is day light Robert you should at least give a complimentary bottle of wine. visited The Castle Tooting on 26 May 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

HI There Price is always relative to the individual and if you are price sensitive, you should always check before ordering so you can make an educated decision about weather to make a purchase or not. I'm not sure who Robert is, but again you don't have to privately hire our mini castles if you don't want to as we have plenty of other spaces for no charge. Glad you liked the place regardless and hope you'll come back to visit soon. Regards Chris Kemp General Manager

Must say the shorter lady (that came to take scores and always has a headset on) is brilliant and the lady with the dyed red hair, such an asset to the team! visited The Castle Tooting on 17 May 2017

Food was mediocre pub food. No health options. Drinks were overpriced in relation to the experience and the fact that this is in not a club in central London. Confusing billing scheme where you are charged per shot and chase, splitting bills requires effort... The atmosphere is nice and the staff are friendly. visited The Castle Tooting on 10 May 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Thanks for you feedback about the staff. Not sure what's confusing about paying your bill. It's the same everywhere? The vegan salad and vegetable soup are pretty darn health as is baked sea trout or the fricasse of vegetables. Sorry you didn't spot these on our menu, but gives you a chance to come again and try.

Our time at this pub was great - the hut itself was perfect for us. However the toilets were out of order at times in the evening (extremely annoying for my guests to my birthday) and the queue for the bar was really long. They should invest in an outside bar for the summer months. visited The Castle Tooting on 06 May 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi and thanks for your review! Saturday was the 4th busiest Saturday since we reopened so the toilets get abused and mean that sometimes they could be out of order due to abuse. We offer full table service outside so you should not have had to queue up at the bar and is why we don't need an outside bar. Maybe you were not aware of this? Apologies if you did not see your server. Hope you'll visit us again soon. Chris Kemp General Manager

Really lovely dinner. Would have liked to have seen a beer card as, like a wine list, being told a ream of beer names is quite confusing if you dont know them all.

I have spent the past three birthdays at the castle and usually love it - I spent a lot of time there being a local. However yesterday we had to leave after one drink because it was just not enjoyable! I'm not sure who was managing, but having music at full volume at 4.30 on a Sunday afternoon, so loud you had to shout your orders to the bar staff, was just crazy! It wasn't a nice atmosphere - not the place where you would want to sit for the rest of the day enjoying lots of food and drink as planned! Real shame. visited The Castle Tooting on 30 Apr 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi Did you request for the music volume to be lowered? It certainly was not at full volume and 'twas I who was managing and thought the music to be at the perfect level for the volume of business. We were exceptionally busy this day and had no other comments about the music. We would have certainly lowered the volume if you'd have let us know! Hope you'll come try us again soon. Chris

We were visiting family in London. It was very easy to get a booking - our table was easily identifiable on arrival. Service impeccable and it's great to see such a family friendly and accessible venue in Tooting. Attentive service and we'll definitely be returning soon. The only small recommendation I would have is perhaps a few more table friendly activities for children (BBC children's sites have printable colouring/puzzles word searches etc). Well done! visited The Castle Tooting on 16 Apr 2017

Had dinner here on 15 April 2017 and service was satisfactory but the food was disappointing. The fish in the kids' fish n chips were overbaked/hard which the waiter replaced but they were still overly salty and peppery/spicy for our 4 kids. One of the steaks ordered medium rare came out medium.well. The mushy peas in the adult fish n chips arrived as chopped up dried peas. I've had many good experiences here but on this visit the food was sub standard. visited The Castle Tooting on 15 Apr 2017

The food is usually ok, but this evening it was particularly bad. It was expensive for the fact that my friends chicken burger was burnt and no longer tasted like chicken. My food was supposed to have onion rings and came with only one perched on top that half the batter fallen off of it. We ordered a started of hummus and olives with bread and were given two 3cm pieces of bread on the plate. Not one thing we ordered that evening was good. The waitress was very apologetic and was happy to try and fix things, but after having to ask for so many things, we were just fed up. visited The Castle Tooting on 05 Apr 2017

We were really disappointed. I've been to The Castle for Sunday lunch a few times and took a friend there who is not from this area. Whilst there were some positives to our experience (like the nice layout of the place and a decent attitude from one member of staff) there were a lot of disappointments that would encourage me to go elsewhere next time. I ordered pork and was given some sort of sausage meat which I do not (and cannot) eat. I asked for the meat just to be switched on the top but my whole plate and cutlery were taken (although I said not to) so I couldn't even pick at the cauliflower cheese we'd ordered as a side whilst waiting for my food. It took forever for a substitute to be delivered and we kept seeing wait staff just wandering around aimlessly with plates as if they were just going to magically be inspired as to where to go, rather than going back inside and finding out which table they should be delivering to. It was really farcical. We asked for mint sauce several times before it was eventually delivered and when I got my food the potatoes were overcooked on the outside and undercooked on the inside. The gracious thing to do would be to discount our meal in some way, but we were brought a glass each of prosecco by way of apology. A nice gesture but I had made it clear in front of the waiter that I wouldn't be drinking alcohol and my friend had been on Pimms so it wasn't really appropriate. We couldn't get hold of any staff to pay the bill for a long time and eventually I got up and went to find someone. Really surprised and disappointed particularly as I'd brought a friend saying I'd had a good time there in the past. visited The Castle Tooting on 02 Apr 2017

The girl serving us Spanish I think was lovely but the wait between starter and main was over an hour and all tables were not occupied the starters were great but the roasts not so good- slimey chicken soggy veg weak thin gravy microwaved yorkshires.

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi Claire Thanks for your feedback. There was on that Sunday, and is often, delays in food service on a due to sheer popularity, Understand that even though some tables may not be occupied in the restaurant, there are tables in the garden and the bar areas all ordering food too. Sorry to hear your roast was not so good as we get great reviews about our roasts. Our gravy takes 5 days to make and we never microwave Yorkshire puddings! It could be that it was just not to your taste. Thanks for the positive comments about the staff and your starters. Come and try us again soon. Chris

Without a doubt the best roast I have ever had... even better than the roast's I have had previously at the Castle. There was a wait on the food (40 mins) but they made us aware of this as soon as we sat down and the service for payment was a bit slow - but they were clearly busy and we weren't in a hurry so 5 stars!

I made reservations for Mother's Day to book a table for eight people. I then contact the restaurant to book a further two people. When I arrived on Sunday we were seated and then told that there was no lamb, or beef on the menu. I found this to be unacceptable so I asked to speak to the manager. I was then approached by a gentleman called John who explained that they were extremely busy and all the lamb had sold out. Being Mother's Day there was not really much we can do however I did stress how upset I was as my mum had wanted to come here to try out the lamb in particular. The manager then found free lamb shanks however nearly 80% of us wanted lamb and were very disappointed with braised beef not being an option it meant that we had to have checking or steak which neither of our guest really wanted. When our food was delivered it was very bland and the lamb shanks were extremely dry, I had previously eaten him on several occasions and found the food to be amazing hence the reason why we decided to come back for Mother's Day however we was extremely disappointed with the quality of the meals that were produced to us. it was so busy that the waiters didn't really focus on quite a few tables and even after all meals had finished the plates we just left on the table until we contacted a member of the team to remove them. We then decided to have deserts however when the menu was handed to us again we was informed that five out of the seven deserts were not available and were also sold out. The waitress apologised and was embarrassed and clearly stated that this has happened before and she always had to be the bearer of bad news. By this time I was extremely upset and spoke to John again and couldn't understand as to why they didn't order a sufficient amount of food knowing that I was told it was going to be fully booked, and to avoid disappointment The customer should have been asked to maybe leave a deposit and as it's over 8 to 10 people booking possibly write down take down the menus and the food that they requested. The manager John offered us a lemon cello however this was not appropriate as four of us were driving and free of them children under 18 years of age I felt that he could have been more empathetic and understanding but he was very dismissive. On my way out I also noticed that another table had a dog at it sitting on customers lap which I disgusting animals should not be allowed in food areas and I'm pretty sure that this breaks to have the safety regulations. I'm extremely disappointed as like I said previously the food I've tasted in the castle was fantastic, due to the service and the quality of the food I received on Sunday Mother's Day I will not be returning and I will be making sure that I put a review on trip advisor to prevent other people from being treated the way that we were thank you for spoiling my mothers Mother's Day. visited The Castle Tooting on 26 Mar 2017

We have now added a booking policy which explains we do not have a infinite supply of food and dishes may sell out as they do in other popular restaurants. If nearly 80% or even 92% or over of your group wish to order just one dish, then please advise when dining at 5pm on a Sunday. The Castle Team

Sadly our experience was not a good one. Service was very poor. I had to ask for menus, for the table to be cleared and enquire how long we had to wait for our meal once ordered. Our table was pre booked and yet lamb and beef was off the menu. We had a toddler with who became quite fractions with the wait. The food was mediocre . We did get some recompense on the bill but this did not make our experience any more pleasurable. visited The Castle Tooting on 26 Mar 2017

Thanks for your feedback and please accept my apologies for your poor service. It is possible for restaurants serving fresh food for some items to sell out. That's just the nature of the business.

The night was great but was slightly spoiled by the lack of choice of meals in the restaurant. I ended up having my 3rd choice of meal and I wasn't the only one. There were many starters and mains that weren't available. When I asked why this was there was no explanation given. Also an additional meal was added to the bill for no apparent reason and then when I asked for it to be removed the new amount still had the same service charge. The staff were friendly and quick and it was still a pleasant experience, just a shame that there was a real lack of menu options! visited The Castle Tooting on 18 Mar 2017

We have been to the Castle Tooting a few times - and it has been great. Unfortunately it wasn't so good this time. It felt as if the kitchen and staff had too much to do - the food wasn't the usual quality (we've loved the food in there before) - the fish for the fish and chips was really oily and slightly undercooked, plus we had a glass of wine that had sediments floating around. This was a mothers day treat for my wife and unfortunately it wasn't great. This is such a shame as we really like The Castle and when we've been before the food has been excellent - but it was a noticeable step down in quality this weekend. visited The Castle Tooting on 26 Mar 2017

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi and thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear your fish and chips were not up to our usual standard so please allow me to apologise for this. It is possible that wine can sometimes have sediment in as part of the natural processes of wine making, but this is completely harmless. I hope you made your comments known on the day and we were able to rectify these issues at the time. Best wishes Chris

When I made the booking almost a week and a half early requesting a table in the bar area I thought I had given enough notice. Unfortunately when I got there I was told they couldn't get a table in the bar but they had one in the restuarant. We we sat right at the back with no atmosphere also the drinks weren't very nice. I understand that The Castle is a very popular place but I would hope that bookings would be honoured. Lauren visited The Castle Tooting on 25 Mar 2017

I have been running Quiz's for over 10 years now so sad to hear that you felt it was not well run. It's only it's popularity that determines the time between rounds as we collect in the scores. Hope you'll come back and try your luck again. Quiztopher

Friendly staff, v good interior space with fire. The food portions ciuld have been bigger. I had only one roast potato,( 4 piece of vegetable in total) with my roast lamb and the lamb was mostly bone and wasn't cook nicely. It was a bit chewy and hard to cut visited The Castle Tooting on 26 Feb 2017

5 stars all round. In fact it was so good, I sent the team an email first thing this morning thanking them for a superb experience. A1 service, delicious food, varied menu, buzzing atmosphere. I'd highly recommend this to anyone, be them a couple or group. From the looks of it, advance reservation is advised as they're very busy! visited The Castle Tooting on 23 Feb 2017

Food was ok - a little sparse with minimal trimmings; the Yorkshire pudding was soggy and overall food was like warm. I think for the influx of people they have it's all very fast fracked which to a degree I can understand but it's still £16 for a roast. Overall ambiendece and staff great food however a tad disappointing visited The Castle Tooting on 12 Feb 2017

Hi, On Saturday (11th February) I booked two tables at the Castle for lunch and to watch the rugby with my family. Lunch was booked in for 2pm and then I booked another table at 4:30pm to watch the rugby. I have attached a copy of both bookings and have clearly requested to be sat in sight of a screen for the game. My parents had driven up to London for my birthday and having spent a combined total of £165 at lunch, I then asked if we could be taken to our table for the match. This was right in the corner and it was impossible to see any screens for the game. In fact it was the only place in the whole pub where you couldn't see. (It was in the conservatory as you walk in on the left and right in the corner, hidden from the two screens you have in there). I planned to spend the whole day at this pub as it is local to me and has a lovely atmosphere, great food and great with kids. The staff are usually great and very friendly. However, when booking this table I called ahead on Monday before to confirm. I specifically requested a table to watch the rugby and the gentleman on the phone even confirmed he was sat in the seat and said he could see the screens. On Saturday I complained to the booking manager, he offered very little support. There was an apology but nothing really to make up for what had happened. All I got given was a card with the pubs email address on and got told that bookings are taken by a different company. As we only found out how bad the table was just before kick off I ended up missing the whole game of rugby as we had to get my 9 month old niece in the car to drive home! Like I said, I love this pub and I am a regular in the restaurant but this has left me bitterly disappointed. Quite frankly it ruined what was meant to be a great family day and I'm absolutely gutted I missed the game. Best regards, Luke visited The Castle Tooting on 11 Feb 2017

The food was delicious as usual and our waitress was lovely. Unfortunately we were not so lucky with our drinks...they brought 2 rounds of spritzers to the table and they were both served with flat soda and the managers agued that it wasnt flat, we eventually returned them again and my friend ordered a glass of champagne, at £8.60 for the glass,that was clearly opened the night before and was flat too. My boyfriend then called from Switzerland to have a bottle of Champagne sent to our table as a surprise for my birthday and he was told my table had left already, we had only just received our food when he messaged me to tell me this around 1.45pm. If the person who answered the phone had bothered to even check that my table was booked from 12.30pm - 3.30pm this would not have happened. So other than the food being delicious and the lovely waitress, it was a bit disappointing considering I had invited people to come there for my birthday. visited The Castle Tooting on 05 Feb 2017

Love this venue and brought 21 guests to eat but was dissapointed with the quality as was previously very impressed at Christmas when I came on a work night out. Service was excellent but the poor waitress in fact had to continuously tell us what we couldn't order. I ended up being told what I could have, rather than it being my choice. "No guinea fowl. No sirloin... you can have rump?" The food was not great and I was disappointed to bring so many people, having raved at how good it was and discover it wasn't this time. Otherwise love the Castle but perhaps just will it be eating there again. visited The Castle Tooting on 04 Feb 2017

I would love to be able give The Castle a 5 star review as really wanted it to be good but unfortunately waiting over and hour and 20 minutes for food was not a 5 star experience ! I accept that a Sunday lunch time is busy but feel they should be used to it and cope a bit better Staff were great, food when it came was good pub food I am willing to try them again but maybe at 12.30 when hopefully service might be quicker visited The Castle Tooting on 08 Jan 2017
