“Fantastic views” over the Warwickshire countryside (and a famous battleground from the English Civil War) from an “interesting building” are an immediate draw at this cosy, picture-book castle – a pub since 1822 and built 100 years earlier. Service is “friendly” and the “competent” gastropub menu majors in a selection of steaks and burgers.

Have you eaten at The Castle at Edgehill?

Owner's description

The pub is built on the summit of Edgehill, some 700ft above sea level, overlooking the plain below which served as the backdrop for the first major battle of The English Civil War. The conflict occurred on Sunday the 23rd of October 1642 between Oliver Cromwell’s parliamentary troops led by the Earl of Essex and King Charles Royalists, led by Prince Rupert and Lord Wilmot.

The two armies of approximately equal size; about 12,000 men, fought from early afternoon until nightfall, with neither side gaining a decisive victory.

Whether you wish to dine for a special occasion with family, perhaps a romantic meal watching the sun go down, or a bite to eat whilst walking the centenary or Macmillan way that passes the pub, we are sure to cater for all your requirements with a warm and friendly welcome from our team.
