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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Castle Tavern is a Yorkshire market town pub. Temper any expectations, for this basic offer. The service was on the below par, for hotels of this kind and well below for the average range. This said, it was inexpensive and the bed was comfortable.

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!

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.

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

"Disappointed "
05/26/15 GillHill Stockton-on-Tees, United Kingdom
Spent one night here on Sunday 24th May. Room was okay and breakfast was lovely however the clientele left a lot to be desired very rowdy and seemed to enjoy chanting rasict comments. The bar staff did nothing to stop this while we were present which resulted in a damper put on our day out and an early night in bed.

"A Gem of a Pub."
04/06/15 Paul H Catterick, United Kingdom
My family and I rate this pub as our favourite in Richmond. As soon as you walk in there's a warm and welcoming atmosphere (enhanced in the winter months by the roaring coal fire) and it looks and feels exactly how a traditional North Yorkshire market town pub ought to. The food menu has excellent choice ranging from "hoity toity" to bar snacks and there's a comprehensive kid's menu. Beer-wise there's always several cask beers on offer to suit most palettes. The rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable and my wife and I had no complaints. In summary a clean, comfortable and friendly traditional pub/hotel which caters to groups of friends, families, couples or just somewhere to relax to read your paper. It's also animal friendly.

Although we didn't stay here we had a good few drinks while sitting in front of the fire. A lovely relaxed place we could have sat all night. My only regret was not trying the food next time we stay in Richmond Im going to book here and try the food. An oldy worldly pub that's worth a pint or two of black sheep

We didn't actually stay here but ate in the bar. The Landlady is a Lancashire lass with a Yorkshire welcome. We had a lovely meal which was reasonably priced. The pub is traditional with a modern twist. We will be returning in the near future.

10/06/14 durhamlasses durham
Stopped here overnight, was ok but found staff a bit nonchalant, the rooms cold and grubby and the yard at the back of the hotel totally covered in dog mess, we had to tiptoe through it all! The only saving grace was a good breakfast next morning served by a pleasant chef who chatted to us. Wouldn't choose to stop here again and wouldn't recommend it, there are nicer places in Richmond for the same money.

"Better than I feared but a few things let it down"
09/29/14 DavidMorris Hythe, Southampton
The evening before arriving (three months after I booked) I read some damning reviews on TripAdvisor and was so alarmed that I - genuinely - considered cancelling. However initial impressions were encouraging - the room was large, the bed was clean and comfortable and the lad who greeted us was friendly and helpful. Certainly I feel some of the previous reviews on here have been excessively harsh but there were a few silly little things that let them down.... .....no milk in the room for the tea/coffee (despite two requests) .....we ran out of toilet paper (and the empty roll was in the bathroom for three days without being removed - as was the rubbish in the bin) .....the shower gel etc were never topped up However, the breakfast was very good - plentiful and efficient and the staff did seem keen to help. I desperately wanted to leave t least a "very good" status and it could so easily have been such. As it was I think 'Average' is about right.
Overall Rating
"Bed Bath & Water Torture"
09/14/14 Robert L London, United Kingdom
We had read most of the reviews on trip advisor before booking The Castle Tavern. Although quite a few of the reviews were negative and the hotel was positioned 32 out of the 43 accommodations listed by trip advisor for Richmond but still had an unbelievable 4 out of 5 rating (I would like to see the formula). We were shown to our double en suite room No 3 which was in need of some refurbishment, the view was a brick wall down an entry. We did not mind the outlook too much as we thought it might be quieter than looking over the busy square at the front of the hotel. How wrong we were! The booming from the jukebox went on till 12-45. We had brought ear plugs but this still did not compensate for the vibration of the floor and noise in the bar. I must have drifted off to sleep soon after, only to be woken at 01-30 by a noise from above us and then a sound of steady dripping of water next to me, this turned into a waterfall coming through the ceiling onto me, the bedside cabinet, the bedside lamp and onto my mobile phone. I jumped up sharply and turned on the lamp (which could have been fatal due to the amount of water cascading down). I went out onto the landing and bumped into the manager who told me he had a burst boiler (a previous review I found also mentions flooding in one of the rooms?). His attitude was ‘well sh** happens’. We were shown to another room overlooking the square which had a shared bathroom; we transferred all our belongings but did not sleep at all for the rest of the night due to this upheaval, the drunks on the street, the bin collections and then the market vans arriving at about 5am. We asked the chef at 7-30 to see the manager who I had spoken too during the night, Brenda the chef did contact him but she said he was unavailable and would not be around till mid-afternoon. Brenda did contact him again to say we were not going to leave till we have seen him. He then sent a message to Brenda to reimburse us for our second night’s stay. I believe he was still on the premises but did not have the courtesy to face us. I pointed out to Brenda that my mobile phone was now not working due to the water getting into it and have left a message for him to contact me regarding a replacement. I don’t expect him to, but will seek further advice if this is not resolved. I was too shattered to eat breakfast or feel like I wanted to look search for another B&B, so we went home. I would have marked this hotel as a zero but the review requires at least one mark.
