Will Larter left this review about Castle Inn

After my disappointment at the Peacock, the Castle Inn was a breath of fresh air. This is a proper pub and the only one on my brief tour of five of Bakewell's pubs where I could identify the customers as locals rather than tourists. The pub's atmosphere was warm, both in terms of the temperature and the welcome I received. There's a real fire as well as radiators, and on the bar are six hand pumps (see photo). I went for the Greene King Abbot Reserve 6.5%, in celebration of finding a proper pub after the utter falsity of the previous one. The pub was busy, with among others a group of locals playing cards, another man reading the paper in the company of his dog, a retired greyhound, and a young family with their toddler occupying one of the bay windows. The staff were cheerful and friendly, and obviously enjoy working there and helping their customers have a good time. The pub furniture is traditional and well used, and I had to be careful to sit on my chair in just such a way that it did not wobble on the uneven stone flagged floor. The only downside to this pub, as far as I am concerned, is that the beer is nothing to write home about. Mine was in good condition but is not a very good beer; I don't often go in GK pubs for this reason, but I'm glad that I came here and would be happy to call in again next time I'm in Bakewell.

It's a Greene King pub, so I didn't expect too much. I was right. they only had one beer on the pumps - GK IPA. I had the Guinness.
The food was quite good, and very reasonably priced, but I think the deep fat fryer needed an oil change.
We would call back, though.
