Corner pub with a reputation for imaginative cooking
At a glance
AA Pick of the Pubs
The Dartmouth Castle is very much a place to relax in, serving a good range of refreshments and plates of very appealing food. It’s a child-free zone after 7pm too, adding to its appeal for those seeking a quiet evening pint. Sambrook’s make their mark with ales such as Wandle; alternatives are Cornish Orchards cider amidst a generous choice of cosmopolitan bottled ciders, beers and lagers; more than a dozen wines are sold by the glass. From the menu, expect imaginative flavours in starters such as fried squid with paprika; or chicken and chorizo croquettes. Move on to a main course of pan-roast duck breast with sweet potato hash or grilled Italian sausages, and finish with apple and mixed berries crumble.
