Castle Inn Hotel, Castle Combe
The Castle Inn sits by the market cross in the centre of the village of Castle Combe - a quintessential Cotswold tourist town, favoured by filmmakers and photographers over the years. As a result, you may well have seen this pub before, without having actually visited it. It's a handsome old place, recently restored (and modernised) to a high standard, in keeping with its well-manicured neighbours and is a handy stop if you're on a tour of the area. The Castle Inn is primarily an hotel and restaurant - the tables are laid out for eating, but there is a bar with a few hand pumps, offering real ales, assorted beers and lagers on tap, wines, spirits etc, which can be enjoyed at the bar, in a small lounge, or outside, if the weather's sufficiently clement. The service is polite and friendly and the food is excellent for the price - fresh and plenty of it. If you're eating here or staying here, you'll be very pleased with the Castle Inn and if you're a passing walker, you'll find it a handy stop for refreshment. However, if you're a pub enthusiast looking for a traditional country pub, this probably not the place for you, particularly when the summer crowds descend on Castle Combe.
