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.

I arrived at the Castle with my wife for lunch on bank holiday Sunday. Although we live in Steyning this was the first time we have eaten here and were pleasantly surprised. We shared a baked Camembert starter which was great and plenty for both of us. For mains we both had a roast dinner, beef and chicken. Both were presented well with plenty of vegetables and cooked to a high standard. Finally we had a Belgian waffle and chocolate brownie, both with ice cream. This again was a quality offering. The only downside was the cost of beer which was extremely high in comparison to local prices, however wine was competitive.

Following a disappointing meal for a midweek visit we were invited back by Steve, Manager as he was also disappointed with our experience when reported. We must say the new restaurant area is very ambient & extremely comfortable. The table service was very proffesional and although the starters took some time to arrive it was well worth the wait. Excellent lamb crocettes and the wife’s fish cake, very tasty. The main course arrived just right. The burger was perfect, fries crispy and the wife’s fish plate cooked to perfection with a tasty sauce. Overall we were pleased to re visit and feel the first occasion was a “ blip” in the normal Castle service and food. Thank you Steve in allowing us to re-experience your dinner menu. We will certainly return. Thank you Castle team Peter & Susan Jackson-Cooper
