“Friendly Tradition in Historical Surroundings.”
One of the main reasons so many guests return to the ‘The Castle’ is because of the great local food and personal service.
Our Executive Chef, Andrew Nelson and Head Chef, Leigh are ably supported by their team of young aspiring Welsh chefs. Consultant Chef/Director Graham Tinsley is the Manager of the Welsh Culinary Team and as you can imagine, passionate about his food! Owner Peter Lavin and Graham have worked together for many years and have always shared the belief that a good hotel must have a good food.
The food reflects all that is good about local Welsh produce and the hotel’s experienced team, led by General Manager, Joe Lavin, ensure a non- fussy approach to the restaurant business. The order of the day, is good food served well, on hot plates, as quickly as possible! Not rocket science, but all too sadly lacking in some establishments!
We serve an eclectic menu to suit all tastes in both Dawson’s Bar & Restaurant (and Garden Courtyard, when weather allows!) and you’ll notice GF (gluten free) quite a lot next to the dishes – even our beer batter is made with Gf flour. To complement, Joe has hand picked some great wines and beers, including a great variety of local ales.
The menu changes regularly and at this time of year, you’ll find some traditional winter fayre and a separate daytime snacky menu is available – on Sundays roasted joints are also served.
Of course, to have a completely enjoyable dining experience, you need to be looked after and another big plus point for ‘The Castle’ is the friendliness and efficiency of ‘all who serve!’ Peter’s two sons, Joe supported by brother Gareth, bring their dad’s humour and their mum’s warmth to the guests! They know that good service is an essential ingredient of the hotel’s continuing success.
Food is served all day 7 days a week. BOOK ON LINE NOW
