Love this place, have been so many times when out for a walk or a great, easy place to meet for lunch with a group or kids. Plenty of parking. They staff are so friendly and really accommodate people with kids. Salads are lovely, everything fresh and always nice specials available.

Was in Castletown house for a children's tour this weekend, a friend recommended we try out the restaurant there. Almost as soon as we walked in and had a look at the place a waitress greeted us and sat us on a table. It is a lovely cafe with a choice to sit out in the beautiful courtyard. Food is gorgeous, very reasonable in price and also good sized portions. We had the burger and the daily special and the kids had fish goujons. The waitresses came over to check food and everything was OK , at the end of our meal offered deserts but when we declined as we had limited time due to the next available tour. Even still she even offered to top us our tea's with hot water and gave the kids lollipops. We ended up taking one of the scones to go and our waitress (who also seemed to be the supervisor) made an effort to put jam, cream and butter into take away pots which I thought was a lovely touch compared to other places that would just slot the scones into a bag and there you have it. Sweets such as carrot cakes, scones and banana bread were 3.50 each which I felt was a little expensive however I cannot fault anything else, food was mouthwatering, staff were friendly, chatty and were very willing to talk about the history of the cafe (it was once the servants kitchen) when we asked about the paintings on the walls etc. Will definitely be returning and would recommend the cafe to anyone.

On beginning our tour of Castletown House, we (a group of 3) noticed the menu and were looking forward to a tasty lunch after our tour of the house. On completing the tour, we headed to the restaurant and while there were some cleared tables they were near the drafty doorway so we sat at another uncleared table out of the draft. We sat and waited as at least four waitresses wandered back and forth numerous times without even catching our eye. What made it worse was that the place didn't seem busy, the waitresses didn't seem to be stressed/overworked and none of them even made an effort to stop for a second to apologise and tell us they would be with us in a minute. After nearly ten minutes, we managed to catch one waitresses eye and asked her if we could please have some menus. It took another five minutes for her to come back and give us some menus and in the meantime the table next to us, who appeared to be similarly neglected passed their one menu over to us having made their choice. No sooner had the waitress arrived back and given us 2 more menus, then another waitress came over (while we were all still looking at the menus) and asked if she could take one of ours for another table. We waited another five/ten minutes for someone to come and clear the table and take our order and eventually gave up and left. The food could be nice for all I know but unfortunately we never got to find out!
