Great food, amazing staff, average accommodation

We stayed here for one night to break up a journey from Wales to SE England.
The rooms are OK. The beds are quite uncomfortable, with only a single, flat, pillow. The room was also very hot, with a window that only opened about 2cm. The TV in the room was also stuck on BBC News. Otherwise, the rooms are reasonably well equipped, with an OK bathroom.
Where the place shines though is in the food and staff. The staff are really friendly, and helpful, putting on masks when they talk to you, and generally going the extra mile.
We had dinner and breakfast here, and the food was amazing. The only criticism perhaps was that the dessert menu was quite uninspired, however, after the huge main, none of us had room!
Definitely worth a visit for the food, and service, but perhaps look elsewhere for a room.

Fantastic friendly staff, fast friendly service, dog and child friendly, Covid compliant spotlessly clean throughout, freshly cooked tasty food excellent quality ingredients and excellent value fish and chips gluten-free were excellent, mixed grill was probably the best I’ve had excellent quality cuts of meat cooked to perfection good sized portions really pleased to have found after years of visiting the area and being disappointed would definitely recommend and will definitely return

We booked in for two nights for a quiet weekend away. Sturdys castle did not disappoint. Check in was super easy and quick, we were booked a table on our first night even though we hadn't requested it it was welcomed :) breakfast was great each morning and the menu offered a wide range of options which were delicious and reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again, all staff were pleasant and helpful and very polite. Beds were super comfy, slept like a log both nights . Thank you sturdys, it was just the stay we needed!

We stopped at Sturdys Castle for dinner, we arrived 10 minutes after the kitchen was supposed to close but the chef kindly agreed to accommodate us, my partner had a steak which he said was cooked to perfection and I had chicken curry (always a concern when not cooked at home) and this was one of the best curries I've had out, plenty of meat and sauce and a good kick to it. We were looked after very well by the front of house team and will definitely be returning, thank you.
Lovely second stay at Sturdy's Castle again!

We have visited this pub with rooms once before. We re-booked as we had such a lovely time on the last visit, and they did not disappoint again. We had the same rooms as last time, very nice, large rooms, clean and bright. Parking right outside the room. The breakfast is fantastic, dinner was from an extensive menu and the staff really make this place relaxing. They are so on the ball with everything and work so hard. A very Covid secure place to stay and eat. We will return!
