Nick Davies left this review about The Castle Inn

This must be one of the most spectacularly situated pubs in the Midlands, and in a fascinating building too. So worth a visit on those grounds alone. It is a Hook Norton tied house in an eighteenth-century mock-baronial confection perched high on the Cotswold escarpment, overlooking the site of the Battle of Edge Hill and built to commemorate it. Inside there are a series of rooms, mainly set up for eating, some commanding expansive views over the Warwickshire countryside. There's an outdoor terrace too. There are several letting-rooms in the tower.

But you need to time your visit. The AA "restaurant with rooms" sign may well be enough to send you seeking refreshment elsewhere, and on a Sunday it should - you might just find a high table to perch on or a sofa to get stuck in - yes it suffers both of those abominations - but you will otherwise be asking if 'you are eating with us' if you venture away from the bar. However if you show up on a midweek afternoon you should have no difficulties being able to enjoy the building, the view, and a full range of decently kept Hook Norton beers.

The very best time to go, and worth a special trip, is for a sundowner on the terrace on a warm summer evening.

This is one of the few Castle Inns that i have been in that is actually a castle.
Once inside the pub had two rooms with a bar serving both,these rooms were carpeted and had normal tables and chairs they were also not that large.
There was a corridor at the rear of the pub which linked the two rooms,this had large windows which gave great views over edge hill and the Warwickshire countryside.
This pub is a Hook Norton tied house and there were three real ales on the bar i had a drink of Hookey bitter and this was a very nice drink the other beers were Hookey mild and Gold.
This pub is a bit out of the way but is worth a visit for the views alone.
