The reservation was made through Open Table. On arrival, they had not transferred our booking to their dining list so were not expecting us. We then had to wait for well over an hour before our food arrived. We had no proper apology for this.
The food was excellent and the staff friendly.
We have been to Langley Castle many times and have always had good service before.

Beautiful food, fantastic surrounding, we stayed in the castle so it was lovely to eat there as well, and to just walk back to our room after, we started in the drawing room with a drink while we browsed over the menu and was then taken to our table where we received a complementary amuse-Boucher . Followed by our starters & main. I had the Butternut squash soup with goats cheese which was amazing and then the chicken for my main. The only thing disappointing was that we had to pay extra to have the pudding that we wanted and they add on their own tip on to the bill. Other than that it was a lovely relaxed enjoyable evening.

The service was dreadful - really basic stuff like getting the order right or making sure everyone got a meal, filling people's glasses, asking if people wanted another drink before they took the glasses. I could go on ….as for the food the portion sizes are tiny, the duck was like leather, the lamb tasteless and the risotto like a bowl of green mush - I recommend you stay/dine somewhere else

I took my family from America here to have a fine dining experience in a castle . The castle itself is beautiful so set the scene. The first waiter we had was great, he was young, funny, helpful and really professional he made our night. However the older waiter we had gave me and my cousin the creeps ( sorry I don’t mean to offend ) he was like lurch of the adams Family , no sense of humour and he made us feel uncomfortable. He was very professional but he needs to lighten up a bit .
The food was well presented and was to die for. Other than the creepy waiter we had a great time .

Good service, attentive without being in your face, very good food with plenty of locally sourced ingredients, a good and complementary wine list. Have a pre-dinner cocktail while you order, enjoy your meal and then repair back to the magnificent lounge for post dinner coffee and liqueurs. At £75-£80 per head including drinks and wine this is actually great value as well. Highly recommended!

We were very satisfied after our dinner at the castle. The service was formal and thorough. The gnocchi was delicious and especially the desserts. I thought the serving sizes were perfect for a 3 course meal. It was a once in a lifetime experience for my husband and I, who are from Australia.

i passed Langley Castle over a number of weeks travelling to from a local residential with work, i liked the appearance of the venue and with our anniversary coming up i booked for afternoon tea, both my wife and i were pleasantly surprised by the value and high quality. the staff were extremely pleasant and professional as well as welcoming, after our tea we walked around the lovely grounds. we will certainly be making a return visit in the future - absolutely 10/10

This was our second visit to Langley Castle, this time to celebrate our friends' wedding anniversary.

As usual pre-dinner drinks (rhubarb gin cocktail highly recommended) were followed by dinner. Now what can I say! Scallops cooked to perfection, a great Veloute, seared Mackerel, then Fillet Steak and Chateaubriand superbly prepared and mouth-watering Hake, followed by puddings to die for. Drinks and coffee upstairs to round off the perfect evening. As usual the wine list has an excellent selection to complement your meal.

Hate to mention money but a total bill of £330 for four people who left absolutely stuffed is the bargain of the century. It is fine dining at a mid range price.

Where Langley Castle scores highest is attentive, friendly and quietly understated service. These are really nice people who make it more than just another restaurant, Can't wait for our next visit in June.

Last time we came to Langley Castle was nearly 3 years ago, and although the castle setting is lovely and the meal was really nice, we felt that the castle is not the same as it was. There has been a big turnover of staff none that we recognised from the previous years, and that although professional they weren't very warm or friendly as the previous staff were, more. like they had a job to do and were polite and courteous and that was it. The food was very nice, but felt the menu was somewhat limited in comparison to 3 years ago especially for a pregnant lady who is restricted in what I could have. Also the food used the have a bit of a twist to it which made it special and something you couldn't get anywhere else l, but now it seems it is much the same as you could get anywhere else (but a bit cheaper). Price did not reflect the service/food, it felt very much overpriced for the service and the food, again last time we visited (we have been a few times) the price although pretty much the same as it was not of a concern 3 years ago but now it feels that although a very nice meal, not as 'special' as it used to be which is what you're paying for.

Lovely castle, nice food, professional staff but just doesn't have the same uniqueness and special feeling it once had. Perhaps if had been our first visit we would of enjoyed it more, but because we know what it used to be life (food/staff) we felt slightly disappointed with the overall experience. Sorry.

Excellent food from a varied menu in a quiet ambience in a beautiful castle setting. Service excellent. Duck was initially undercooked but immediately rectified with a complete fresh plate of food. Would definitely recommend visiting this restaurant for superb cuisine and service.

Stayed with my husband a couple of weeks earlier and so impressed brought a friend for Sunday lunch birthday treat. Served pre lunch drinks in drawing room upstairs by pleasant friendly staff where food order is also taken. Then escorted downstairs to fabulous dining room. All service is exceptional and food delicious very large portions of beef and pork. Totally love this beautiful castle will definitely return for more decadent delights. Afternoon tea next time.

A lovely afternoon and our first sampling of afternoon tea and we were not disappointed! The ‘Gentleman’s’ option is a melange of savouries including a mini cheeseburger with a pannacotta, eclair, sponge and fruit tart to follow. My wife had the traditional which was equally interesting.Delicious! Well done and thank you Team Langley!

Upon arrival the staff were pleasant and helpful. We were shown to a table where we had to pick our meal and drink order, once our table was ready the staff the carried out drinks to the table which was a nice touch.
food was OK for the price, however I found the potions far to small and went home hungry. My dates pudding (a tart) was burnt on the bottom. I had a cheese board which was a £12 supplement on the meal. This was tiny, came with nice little extras like chutney etc but it's wasn't worth it and not a nice selection on cheese either.
when the bill arrived I luckily noticed that the bill was for a different table! My bill came to 120, but the original one they brought me was for 179.
I judge a restaurant on whether I would return, unfortunately I would never go back again.

We had a wonderful stay at Langley Castle. It was everything we hoped for. Our room was very nice and we loved the alcove you can sit in an look out over the castle grounds. The evening meal was fantastic and the service was brilliant. We are looking forward to visiting again.

It continues to be a place offering escapism. It is quite different. Love the place. The service is always very good. The food changes with what they are pitching at. Currently it is not as "cheffy" as it was a year or so ago when there was more of a "tasting menu". But still very good. The filet steak element of the standard menu, was sublime. Yes we had a good birthday dinner.

Langley Castle is absolutely gorgeous. We booked the B&B&D (bed & breakfast & dinner) option, and the 3-course dinner was more food than we could even enjoy. My venison was cooked perfectly, and the fish was also tasty. The menu is somewhat limited but what is on offer is delicious. I highly recommend this dining experience.

The food was fresh and prepared well but it lacked any seasoning. We all felt like it could be so much better. The castle is lovely and the setting is beautiful but the bland food and the off and on service was annoying for such a nice place! Would have liked to say more positive things.
