Close your eyes, and picture the typical inn in the typical English village… That's The Castle Inn Hotel. Nestling in the heart of the South Downs in the charming village of Bramber, a beautiful place to visit, and a restorative place to stay. You could feel in the middle of nowhere there, and yet you are within easy reach of Brighton (8 miles), Worthing (6 miles), Brighton City (Shoreham) Airport (4 miles), Gatwick Airport (22 miles), Newhaven Ferry Port (26 miles) and road & rail links to London. There are fresh new dishes of the day, every day, including several vegetarian options and local produce are used where possible. If you have any special dietary requirements simply call and speak to a chef. The Castle Inn serves contemporary and classic British/European dishes and is open 7 days a week (the kitchen at 6:00pm on a Sunday during the winter). For your comfort and relaxation there is the Bramber Dining Room that is reserved for adults (+14). The newly-refurbished Coach House dining room with 32 seats serves breakfast, lunch and dinner; this is the family-friendly dining room. There is also a spacious bar area that seats 34 and when the weather is good there is a lovely English garden that seats a further 72.

We went here as one of our party has food allergies & the menu is so informative . On choosing our food we were told they had fun out of pie of the day I asked if they had run out of anything thing else before re picking & was told no . We asked for ham egg & chips & were told there was no eggs & no ham we asked for gluten free pizza & were told there wasn’t any of that. My gluten free friend was then offered a sausage sandwich so I asked if the sausages were gluten free & was told no. The food we did have was lovely even though one of us was only able to have a plate of chips .the new decor was also lovely . Staff were friendly but could do with more training

Arrived having booked table for 2. Were shown to table by bar staff, asked if we would like to see wine menu (we declined as we are not wine drinkers) but we’re not asked what we would like to drink while we looked through menu. Some 10-15 minutes passed and we were not acknowledged - unless you count waitress offering us someone else’s food - we politely said we hadn’t yet ordered and she went away - but nobody else returned! Fed up (as were 4 other diners who were waiting for desserts) we upped and left. Bar staff offered lacklustre response as we left, no offer of free drink as apology for wait etc. Shame as we have eaten here several times in the past and it has always been good service and great food. Maybe they’ve changed owners which would explain everything? On the flip side, having left we found an amazing Indian restaurant right next door with fantastic food and very attentive service!

I took some friends to the castle for dinner and we all enjoyed the excellent food which was beautifully presented and tasted delicious, the restaurant is very light with plenty of space between the tables . Most enjoyable evening.
