We say…

In the heart of Castle Donnington, The Castle Inn is a fantastic bar and restaurant with a penchant for quality Mediterranean cuisine. Conveniently located on the High Street, the restaurant is the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat after a busy day shopping, or to visit for a leisurely lunch.

From the outside, The Castle Inn retains the traditional look of a rural British pub finished with a contemporary logo. Attractive and welcoming, inside offers some fantastic features, such as a roaring traditional pizza oven and rustic wooden furniture. Carefully blending quaint British charm with Mediterranean design, the inn boasts a stunning dining environment, complete with unique art pieces, bright walls and a stunning fireplace.

The menu makes the most of what the Mediterranean has to offer. Start with something full of flavour, such as the honey baked fresh figs, wrapped in prosciutto and finished with a Modena balsamic glaze. Cheese lovers will adore starting with the Mozzarella Arancini – risotto balls with fresh tomato, mozzarella and nduja oil.

For your main dish, choose a salad for something light and bursting with taste. The baby courgette and parmesan salad is a particularly popular option, dressed with lemon juice, oregano and olive oil. Made with homemade dough and cooked in their very own wood-burning oven, the stone baked pizza is also a fantastic option. Choose the pizza topped with Nduja beef, chorizo, spinach and red onion for a dish with a Spanish twist, or sample the shrimp, anchovies, mussels, octopus and black olives – a must for seafood lovers. The Mediterranean Chargrill is full of choice for a heartier meal. Choose the lamb rump, marinated rosemary, mint and olive oil, or try the whole sea bass – chargrilled and finished with lemon juice, accompanied by a salsa verde.

A fantastic addition to Castle Donnington’s culinary scene, The Castle Inn, Castle Donnington offers a unique take on Mediterranean cuisine and is the ideal place to visit for that special lunch or evening meal.
