Local produce World flavours

food5A word from Sharon:

We offer fresh, seasonal and local produce, traditional and contemporary dishes using the best British ingredient from the garden of England served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Using locally sourced game from the Sevenoaks such as venison, pheasant and duck. Our meat we buy fresh from Martin at Normans butchers next door, and we source our selection of cheese from Kent and Sussex favourite’s at the moment include Inn Keepers Choice, or Scrumpy Sussex & Canterbury Blue all great on a ploughman’s. Salad & vegetables from Russell at Cherry Ripe, freshly baked bread delivered daily from Mia’s Bakery Sidcup & fish from M&J Seafood who buy out of the country’s busiest seaports Ramsgate, Folkestone & Whitstable with boats also operating from the beaches of Deal, Hythe & Dungeness

If you drop in lunch time why not try traditional Spitfire bitter battered cod, or homemade fishcakes, “The best ploughman’s in Kent” I know that’s a bold statement but they are great! .

On the main menu you will always find a good burger at the moment the most popular is our Castle Burger which is a stack consisting of bun, iceberg lettuce, one of Martin the butchers beef burgers topped with BBQ marinated pulled pork, melted Canterbury cheddar, tomato, onion topped with a gherkin! We also always serve fresh fish daily such as Sea bass sandwich (two sea bass fillets filled with a salmon, dill and crème fraiche pate) or cod fillet with a herb and mature cheddar crumble topping.

The special boards will change twice daily to reflect seasonal dishes and our chef’s imagination for a unique dining experience. The Castle Hotel is all about amazing food, with an element of surprise, all Chef’s menus are unique and offer real value for money that really tickle your taste buds try our dishes, all served by our friendly staff in a funky setting. We strive to create the best possible experience for our customers by offering exceptional quality, service and value. We look forward to exceeding your expectations sometime soon…
