Blackthorn _ left this review about The Castle Tavern

Having changed it’s name from “The Castle Tavern” to “The New Castle”, it has I suspect, also had a makeover that has pretty much removed any semblance of it ever being a pub. True, there was a couple of fonts on the bar, but that aside this is very much more a café than a pub. In fact it describes itself as a “Coffee Lounge and Wine Bar” which seems a reasonable description.

It’s an impressive old building, looking very much like a castle, and has full length windows and a patio area to take in the great views across Sand Bay. The main room is light wooden flooring, red Formica topped tables and light wooden chairs. There's a bar counter with a selection of cakes for sale, and a small freezer for ice cream. On the walls is a minimal amount of artwork and a couple of blackboards, one advertising lunchtime specials and the other forthcoming events such as a Curry Night, Mother’s Day, etc.

The food on a recent lunchtime visit was primarily baguettes and jackets, with half a dozen or so specials from the board, such as a Thai Curry, Lasagne, etc. It seems popular and was surprisingly busy on a midweek lunchtime.

There is also a very small lounge area with a couple of leather chairs and some low tables, but overall this seems very much a place for light meals, not drinking. Having said that, the guy running it was very friendly and if a café is what you’re after I’d recommend it. Certainly all the punters who were there seemed to be enjoying themselves and the food was receiving positive comments. But I can’t honestly say it’s a pub anymore, so I’m going to refrain from marking it.

There were no beers on tap, just San Miguel lager and Thatcher’s Gold cider (which suited me fine!).
