"Not a luxury hotel, but beautifully situated"
The Castle Tavern is located on the historic market place. I had a nice view of the castle keep from my window, and it was surprisingly quiet. The people were reasonably friendly and served a good breakfast. The accommodation, however, had some shortcomings. The room (No. 2) was tastelessly furnished, and the lighting was poor. The door squeaked badly and sometimes locked itself when pulled shut, but sometimes didn't. The bathroom for No. 2 (which admittedly had a lower rate than other rooms) was not en suite but located separately on a lower level. There was a danger of locking oneself out of the room when going to the bathroom at night without a key, and I was not warned of this. The shower was not great, and neither Kleenex nor lotion was provided. Rather basic, I would say. However, the Romantic location made up for the inconveniences.

very friendly and helpful staff, missed breakfast but gave me a free sunday lunch in place which was a nice touch. functional, comfortable room, would have preferred en suite though! right in the middle of richmond so great location, opposite the green howards museum and a couple of mminutes walk from the castle. parking is a little tricky but that's more to do with richmond than the hotel!

The shower in room 1 was covered in black mold, the room was cold but a small portable electric heater was provided which took 3 hours to take the chill off the room. The breakfast was fairly reasonable.

"Great location in Richmond Square"
My initial reaction on arriving was one of disappointment however having spent the last three nights there my feelings have changed. The young couple that run the pub and their staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. They have only been in the pup for five months but have already changed the atmosphere from one catering mainly for young people to one suitable for all ages and families and this is reflected in the people you see in the bar. We didn't eat there in the evening but the quality and choice of breakfast was of a high standard and plenty of it. Whilst the room was fairly basic it was clean and of a reasonable size. They have plans to upgrade their rooms this year. To summarize, if you want a posh room pay 2 or 3 times the price and go somewhere else if not then the friendly staff, atmosphere and location makes this pub an ideal place to stay. I would use it again and recommend it to friends.

Our room was nice and clean but as there was an impending change of management there was no real ale available. The pub decor was generally shabby and needs refurb. The room itself was nice. Breakfast was cooked well.

"Great beer & free sarnies at a World Cup evening."
Had some work to do in the area so booked this Inn for one night B&B. right in town square, free parking 6 til 8 so no bother there. Pub room upstairs was spacious, clean and tidy & en-suite. Got a double room including cracking breakfast for £45.....bargain. Watched England match as Uruguay stuffed two past an England team of useless plodders. Didn't spoil my night either as it was totally expected.

"CastleTavern, Richmond"
The Castle Tavern is well situated in Richmond's market place. Clean and well presented room, however the en-suite turned out to actually have the bathroom downstairs. Evening food is served at the pub however at 8:30 I was too late to order this, but next morning's breakfast was good though. Parking is free in the market place but is restricted to 2 hours between 8am and 6pm plus you will need to acquire a local parking disc for the car windscreen.

"Adequate 1 night stop over without live band!"
We used this hotel as a stopover for participating in a nearby long distance bike race starting very early the next day at 7am. We had to leave the hotel at 6:30AM. Although the landlady was friendly and organised dropping us off a cereal breakfast (instead of getting up to make a cooked breakfast) due to getting up early, we were unable to organise eating it due to a lack of space in the room and getting up late after being kept awake until at least 11:30PM due to a live band playing directly under the room in the hotels pub. In between the band taking breaks, the background music was also loud enough keep you awake. They did turn the live music down after 10:30 or so, however it carried on at a level to keep us up. This was not explained in their Hotel description which is misleading; had we known this we would not have booked the room at all and found somewhere quieter.

"Castle Review"
Parking was easy at around 7.45pm, kitchen closed at 8pm but chef was happy to stay a few minutes longer. Excellent beer but steak n ale pie was a bit stale. My room was in fact two rooms with double bed in both, access to the en suite was through the second bedroom. Unfortunately our accommodating chef left the very noisy kitchen extractor running all night. This was directly below my window and did not allow me the sleep I needed. Breakfast was poached egg as requested but was a little overdone. Staff were very friendly from the moment I arrived, I would consider returning but would request a room well away from the kitchen!

"Stairs"
Fantastic location in market square overlooking castle. Comfortable room on the second floor but Oh! -those stairs. Even stairs to the our private bathroom which was separate from the bedroom. There is no car park but there was plenty of room in the square where parking is managed with a disc which is supplied by the inn. Friendly welcome, help given to carry up our luggage. No meals other than breakfast but there are plenty of eating places within walking distance. The nearby French restaurant is very good. The Castle serves a full English breakfast.

"Pleasant stay"
We enjoyed our stay, we was in room 3 a large double bed room with bath and shower.This is not a place for people who want a modern,quiet place to stay. But if you are like us, who go to bed late, and like music, it is no problem, for there is music on friday & saturday night. The friendliness of the staff and people in the area was noticed by my wife. We had a breakfast on the first day which was good and large, but we had eggs on toast the next two days. It is a old building most likely built before the 17th century and has narrow stairs, no lifts. We would go again.Never had a evening meal there, Fish &chips at the local shop which was very good, next day at a Wedding, but the best was a meal sitting outside THE TURF HOTEL on Sunday dinner time, I ordered large Roast Lamb £7.89 a small Steak & Ale Pie with four types of veg & saute cheese potato's & gravy. The best meal I have had for a long,long time, every mouthful was a explosion of taste. that made our three day break. MR N Ingram

The pub area was very nice and the staff were really helpful. The room was very dark and dingy, unable to get hot water from shower in the morning. The breakfast in the morning was first class, so on the whole it was an acceptable stay, but would chose another hotel if we stay in Richmond again.

Behave just spent two hours sitting at this bar, for the first time in 17yrs and had such a lovely evening. The lady behind the bar, Joanna, was so friendly and chatty, telling us about the new owners and their plans. I friendly atmosphere, clean bar and nice and bright and just thoroughly enjoyed myself there. A true Jen of Richmond so do make a visit if you are passing through town.. Also B&B there which can't get a better position in town. New fav pub in town.

What a lovely place to stay. Clean comfy bed, wonderful staff, really friendly local people and a HUGE breakfast the next morning. We stayed on the Saturday night and danced the night away to live music. The bar was really lively and full of happy people determined to enjoy themselves. It's been ages since I've enjoyed myself so much. Thank you so much, Castle Tavern and a big hello to Kevin at the bar and love to Mr Mittens.

"Lovely Pub"
06/18/15 Scouse73 Wiltshire, England
I stayed here recently for 2 nights on business. My room was a really good size & the bathroom was huge. Everywhere was very clean. I had dinner here on the first night, my steak was cooked perfectly and the portion sizes were huge! I had the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on both mornings, again, good portions (that defeated me) but were delicious. You can access the rooms through a side door (without the need to go through the pub) but I enjoyed the banter with the locals so I was quite happy in the bar. Everyone was very friendly & welcoming, which is great for a female travelling alone. i would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a lovely stay.
