Description

One of Tooting’s 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.

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

Always love going to The Castle's Quiz Night with our social group. Chris is a fantastic Quiz Master, the rounds are interesting and fun and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. We've been going to The Castle every month now for what must be 1.5 plus years and so far no other pub quiz I've been to compares! Some of our members travel from Kent, Surrey, North, East and West London for the Quiz which is testament to such a fab night :)! So huge well done to Chris and his staff for offering such a fab night - Thank you The Castle :@) Daniele and all from SLL Meetup. visited The Castle Tooting on 04 Jan 2017

Lovely decor and had been impressed prior to our booking with the level of contact by Archie, and his willingness to accommodate our party, which was quite large, including 7 small people under 3.5. However, on arrival at 12pm for our 12pm booking the pub had not yet opened so we were waiting outside. And when it did, it became apparent that the requirements for our table (7 highchairs) had either not been conveyed to the staff on that shift, or had been ignored. We were allocated a high table on bar stools with no highchairs. I had to request to change tables which meant we were moved to the restaurant area with more suitable tables. However, this meant table service which was extremely poor. We were happy to order at the bar but were told this was "too complicated" and asked to sit back down until someone took our order, which took an age. When the food came, it was delicious for the adults but the kids' fish and chips came with burnt fish... Overall, a disappointing experience which I wasn't expecting. Afraid we won't be back. visited The Castle Tooting on 31 Dec 2016

All staff was lovely and attentive. Food however was average and so was the music, really low could barely hear it so not many people were dancing. This year they did not do the fireworks in the garden which was very disappointing, it was not their fault but has we known we would have probably not chosen to go. visited The Castle Tooting on 31 Dec 2016

Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback. We never mentioned we were doing fireworks this year but it was due to safety reasons that we were not able. We will look into the music system this year to see how we can improve it further. Kind regards Chris

Burnt food, half the menu was off, onion rings undercooked and when I sent them back the waiter was rude and sarcastic. Also promised to remove them from the bill, but then didn't. table was for 11, and only 9 of us were there; just as well as 11 would have been very squashed, despite the fact the restaurant was half empty. Drinks were slow and often had to be asked for twice. I've been to the pub a lot and always been impressed, but maybe the staff were having a bad day. I'd recommend the pub, but not the restaurant visited The Castle Tooting on 29 Dec 2016

I booked a table for the pub quiz. The host master was hysterical! I loved our seats around the fireplace and all the staff were really friendly. The only negative comment would be that I couldn't hear the quiz at times due to the loud music-I love music don't get me wrong but I did find it difficult to hear and chat to my friends. Also we won a bottle of prosecco for giving the host a ciggy first. Never had that in a quiz before but loved the originality. I've been to The Castle several times and will continue to visit. Thanks for the entertainment! xxx visited The Castle Tooting on 28 Dec 2016

Having had a few problems leading up to the day,the actual day wasn't to bad apart from one member of staff not now in what he was serving, so getting us confused. Before the event we were asked for our names so they could correspond with the food we ordered . A complete waste of time as they didn't have any of our names .I had to revert to my mobile to look up what we ordered . Finally we had to ask for our bill 3 times . visited The Castle Tooting on 25 Dec 2016

Really disappointed in the service we received . We Sat down at our table at 1 PM our starters did not come for a whole hour and when they did turn up one of them was cold and at the end of the meal when we were supposed to get coffee meant by the waiter didn't even know about this so he had to go away and come back awhile later after we had drunk or coffee is the service was really bad why is it that we have to give orders in the Advance . And also the turkey that was caught on our main meal was in chunks so like somebody had hacked it away instead of cutting it into slices visited The Castle Tooting on 25 Dec 2016

Menu was explained with no pushy up selling. Food was great and good value for money. On massive plus was our waiter noticed when one of our party had finished their drink and was straight over to ask if they wanted another. Fabulous service. The quiz was hilarious a real gem and fantastic humour with food and drink tasting rounds. Such fun. Quiz master was so funny we had a ball. Enjoyed it so much we are planning our return very soon as a regular night out. All washed down with a great bottle of Arginine Malbec great value at £23. A real must when in Tooting on a Wednesday visited The Castle Tooting on 21 Dec 2016

The place is beautiful and we had a nice place, unfortunetly the service wasnt as good and some details on the food put my friends off from coming again here. Have to mention in special the £23 of a Sirlon stake that was tasteless and when requested well done, was red in the middle, I guess is because it was frozen the meat from before? Very sad. And the cheese cake, horrible, old probably. visited The Castle Tooting on 20 Dec 2016

Thanks for giving us your feedback, I am sorry you were let down on your visit. I will speak to our butchers regarding the steak and I can assure you that our steaks are NEVER frozen. The cheese cakes are made to order and we make a fresh batch most days of the week as it's so popular and one of my favourites. I hope you'll come and try us again and allow us to make it up to you. Kind wishes Chris

We had a fabulous feast and the staff brought our drinks quickly to our table when asked. The food took longer to get to us as it took over an hour to get our starters. When it arrived it was well cooked and worth the money if you had the traditional Turkey, as it was moist and your plate was packed with food. visited The Castle Tooting on 17 Dec 2016

Review of the Christmas Feast. The soup was tasty but not warm and the one slice of bread it came with not toasted but we will let it slide as they took a long time to get to us due to the pub being so busy so the soup could've been scorching when it left the kitchen. The chorizo wooden plate was flavourful but again only one small slice of bread happily this wasn't toasted so worked well. The turkey was tender and moist and the potatoes crispy with lots of moreish pigs in blankets that needed a lot more cranberry sauce. The deserts were delicious but 2 scoops of ice cream please next time with them as one wasn't enough for any of them. visited The Castle Tooting on 17 Dec 2016

The roasts were bland - there were no greens and primarily carrots and parsnip mash, 2 roast potatoes and same soupy gravy for lamb, beef and turkey meats. When no greens pointed out and stated in menu, had lame response due to seasonal availability. Actually more a quality control issue. Where is the substitute? Disappointing won't be back to eat n a hurry. visited The Castle Tooting on 18 Dec 2016

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi Thanks for taking the time to write a review and sorry for not meeting your expectations. Sprouts were the greens on Sunday and it is possible they were forgotten on this occasion. If we ever fail to meet your expectations, please advise at the time. Extra veg is always available if you ever need so don't be afraid to ask. Regards Chris Kemp General Manager

I have been to the castle quite a few times. The staff are always friendly and the food is always good. I was a bit disappointed on this visit because the pork roast dinner has changed without any change in the menu description. The new pork roast is no comparison to the old roast and had no crackling. I had persuaded one of my friends to have the pork based on previous visits and so I was pretty disappointed. visited The Castle Tooting on 18 Dec 2016

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi Thanks for taking the time to write a review and am delighted you enjoyed the service. We went from pork hock, to pork belly and on your visit, pork loin ,making it clear what to expect. It is possible that your crackling was omitted in error but a simple request could have rectified this. Never be afraid to ask as we always have loads! We have had a few people who want the hock back so watch this space... Best wishes Chris Kemp General Manager

The Castle was fabulous at accommodating our large festive group and mostly the food was excellent. Two people were very disappointed with the pork cheek starter, which did not appear at all as described (it came in a broth), and overall, drinks were a little expensive. We had a great afternoon though - service was excellent. visited The Castle Tooting on 18 Dec 2016

Very, very disappointing will not be returning and could not recommend the castle. We waited a 1.5 hours for our starter and very long wait for every stage of the meal. We had 3 different waiters; we were offered the wrong order twice. We had to show our pre order e-mail as proof! We had to ask for drinks and remind staff at every course. The Nut roast was tomatoes with some chopped nuts-not a nut roast and no flavour! Vegetables were not special and over cooked. Venison did not taste like it should, either! Sorry I cannot think of anything positive to say. We did complain to all of our waitress'/waiters and also to the manager but our group felt this was a waste if time. It seemed that there were too many people booked in, not enough staff, no organisation at all and a unqualified chef. Summary we ordered our food and paid a deposit over 2 weeks in advance, but on the day we were neglected, left hungry and thirsty for a long time and were so disappointed when food eventually arrived (after numerous requests!)-so never again! Would like to be able to give a zero star rating-but unable to! visited The Castle Tooting on 16 Dec 2016

Great venue, friendly bar staff but the staff waiting the food were very rude. One guy and girl in particular kept yelling at us for being in their way. Our tables were given away because we were running a bit late. I didn't even receive a phone call to ask if we were still coming before they were given away and I booked the tables over 1 month ago. I found this to be very disappointing. visited The Castle Tooting on 10 Dec 2016

Amazing! Lovely spacious area and layout, great atmosphere, friendly and engaging staff. All needs catered for. The quality of the food the efficiency of the staff serving it and the chef being able to provide an excellent meal to so many people to that quality needs to be acknowledged. Nice touch with the playlist and not the usual Christmas songs which added to the fun of the evening. I would highly recommend this venue, as I have organised work parties at other similar establishments and this one was by far the best. I would definitely return here in the future.

I would like to give feedback regarding our visit yesterday. There were six of us who had lunch. We have been coming to the castle since it opened, yesterday will be my last visit. The food was horrible, my husband and I were sick when we got home, it was the worst I have ever had. We both had the pork. The meat was tasteless, there was more fat than anything. There were no vegetables on the plate. It was very unappealing. Tasteless meal. The service was poor. He didn't know what was available and what wasn't. If he was new then you should give more training. We waited ages for drinks and our second round of drinks. When are starters arrived we had no plates and not enough cutlery. When I got up to ask for plates and butter the waitress didn't understand me. Deserts were nice. Flat whites were disappointing, I couldn't believe how bad. This restaurant has really gone down hill. We won't be back for food or drinks, I certainly won't be telling people to go like I did before. We are both off work today with sick stomachs due to the pork.

Nice food but approx half of the dishes weren't available. We were advised that there would be a 40 minute wait for food, asked if we wanted to pay for bread / olives etc to keep us going whilst we waited. I think given the number of unavailable dishes and the wait for food, it would have been nice if this had been offered complementary as a gesture. The food is nice though and good atmosphere. visited The Castle Tooting on 26 Nov 2016

I booked a table for lunch online for 13.00 yesterday, the table given was a bar table right at the front on sofas, the staff told me that this is what I booked but showed them the email that I had booked for lunch, they said there is nothing they can do at the time, we had to wait over an hour to be sitted in the restaurant, no apologies from any staff members which I felt was disappointing. The waiter we had (sorry can't recall his name) was really polite and friendly. You have changed the veggie roast which was very disappointing, please bring back the cauliflower & brocali bake. visited The Castle Tooting on 13 Nov 2016

Reply from The Castle Tooting

Hi Thanks for taking the time to write in. Booking so late on our automated system can only assign tables that are available. There was nothing my staff could do as the restaurant areas were fully booked and there was indeed a waiting list for alternative tables. I am very pleased to hear that your server was polite and friendly and we had changed the Veggie roast by request from our customers - Note they could have asked for 2 portions of the side dish to replace the tart which would not have been a problem, If you are wanting a specific table or area, it is always best to call to make this clear.

The food was good and the staff were friendly. Unfortunately, despite booking, we were told on arrival that the turnaround time from the kitchen was 45 - 60 minutes - this was for a late Sunday lunch. The staff seemed thin on the ground - it took ages to clear empty plates on ours and surrounding tables and offer dessert menus; we had to go up to staff to order dessert and get the bill; despite requesting a high chair when we booked and requesting the same twice from members of staff we ended up finding one ourselves. It felt that more bookings were taken than they could reasonably handle. visited The Castle Tooting on 06 Nov 2016

I had my birthday party there last night and the restaurant was a total shambles. We are waiting to hear back from the management as it was such a disaster. There were 20 of us- separated on to three tables, those who ordered first got served last, orders were totally forgotten, some finished main before others hadn't even had their starter. 1hr15mins wait for starter after ordering. Unfortunately the waitress dropped a fish stew all down my friend, she then waited half an hour for a new one by which point everyone else had finished. The bangers and mash was so salty it was inedible. We were then offered shots or coffees as an apology and with four pregnant people this was useless. Such a shame and handled very badly by the managers on site. We have eaten here many times before and it's always been great but last night was a chaotic mess.

It was my birthday and I had to send my steak back twice as it was very rare. We were told (2 of us) as redress for the wait we would get free desserts. However on the bill I still had to pay. We explained that we wanted to take away the desserts and steak as we had the wait. We needed to repeat this several times. The food was fabulous, the service considering that it was not busy was bad! visited The Castle Tooting on 28 Oct 2016

I booked in for 8 people this Sunday (23rd) as I had heard great things. Booking over the phone was great and the person on the other end very friendly. Decor and menu are fab. Unfortunately that is where the good bits end. We turned up and were seated by a woman. She was very abrupt and told us there was an hours wait on food (which is fine as could see how busy you were). She then told us if we were hungry we had best order some starters. We asked for a couple of minutes as hadn't thought about ordering starters until she told us the wait time and we were told in a very direct way, no. If we wanted starters in a good time frame then we had to order now. She didn't take the time to make recommendations or explain the menu. If she had we would have realised that what we ordered was not enough for the table. Our food took around an hour and 20 minutes. Again this is fine however it would have been nice to have been checked back on during that time for drinks. Food was great apart from one of our party. We didn't get the chance to rectify this as nobody did a check back. We didn't see our rude waitress again until she came to take payment by which she asked how we were paying the tip. We always tip as most of us have worked in the service industry at some point but the way she demanded how we were paying it left all of us open mouthed. My friend left a bank card there, she has called today and was spoken to atrociously by whoever answered. Great venue with great potential. Lack of a great service means I wouldn't go back or recommend as manners cost absolutely nothing. If you don't like your job (our waitress clearly didn't) then don't do it.

Held a babyshower here for my friend and there was 14 of us in all-whilst the booking process etc was smooth and the reminder emails very professional the actual event was a bit of a let down. I was allowed to decorate the area in the morn which was lovely. When we arrived we had drinks order taken and then we then were informed there was at least a 30min wait for food-ok it was a sat at 2pm but we had booked the table so not a surprise to the place-the waitress said she would bring over some breads and oils to keep us going which we thought was a nice touch (however we were charged for them when the bill came!) and we then ordered mains and got on with having a babyshower. The group orders from both the main menu and the sandwich menu-and to our horror 5 people who ordered the chicken and stuffing sandwich found bones in the chicken mixture-ok if it was fish you would kind of expect this or if it was stated in the menu may contain small boned then fine-when the first was found we called over the waitress and she was apologetic and said she would inform the chef-she sald the reason was because they are using fresh chicken (not sure what else they would use-its a chicken sandwich!) then as time went on it became almost a joke as each person in turn found bones!! The waitress did take these off the bill but my friend whos babyshower it was, was really upset and embrassed by it as its all everyone was talking about-the bones in the sarnies and no one who had the sandwiches finished them for fear of finding more bones. Seeing as so many had been effected it would have been nice if maybe the manager etc had come and apologised-and explained how on earth it had happened-its a godsent no one choked on one-we know st georges is an amazing hospital but we didnt fancy a trip there on a sat afternoon! Ive not been to the castle for years-it was a recommendation from my mum who lives in tooting and has been a few times with work colleagues. Cant change what happened with food-but service wasnt bad-might give it a go again if Im in the area-I feel I owe my friend another meal! visited The Castle Tooting on 22 Oct 2016

You're not supped to leave a restaurant in a more miserable state than when you arrived but unfortunately I did. Having booked a table on a Sunday, I waited more than an hour for my food. As a customer, whether the restaurant is busy or not should have no relevance to me. It should be invisible. A visit to a restaurant isn't the food, it's the whole event and it was below par. The manager came over and apologised ay some point. Rather than listening to what I tried to described, all I got was fobbing off and a feeling that because I had paid, they didn't care as they had the money in the bag. What kind of restaurant is that? The fact that it was my Mum's birthday just made the whole experience twice as bad as is actually was. Sorry but that's the truth. I doubt if they will publish this one, but hats off if they do. visited The Castle Tooting on 16 Oct 2016

Lovely meal as always. Recommendation though, for vegetarians, please have veggie friendly gravy available. This was something that my friend found very annoying as it meant her veggie roast was very dry. visited The Castle Tooting on 16 Oct 2016

All of the staff were really helpful, but I would like to single out Bastian our waiter, who literally could not do enough for us! Thank you for making my birthday so memorable. visited The Castle Tooting on 15 Oct 2016
