With a couple of weeks rest, we continued our search for the optimum Sunday feast. Again, being the lazy people we are, we stayed pretty local and strolled down Portobello Road towards Ladbroke Grove to find The Castle, one (1) Loz had found online that looked pretty good.
Value: 5 - 11-13 quid for a roast so expectations were fairly high. The food was good but not twice as good as some others for half the price.
Quality: 8 - for the price you'd expect better quality than most of our previous places, but the food was pretty good.
Atmosphere: 7 - a corner pub so not huge amounts of room but a nice warm feeling throughout the place. People were in good spirits yet there wasn't too much noise to have a decent convo.
Service: 3 - pretty poor if I'm honest. The barman did nothing but complain to me about how much shit his boss had given him that day for doing nothing wrong (although I'm pretty sure he was stoned), and the waitresses didn't want to give us the time of day. Let down...
Would we go back? Given that I've barely given it a pass-mark, lets just stick with no.
