Latest review:

The quality of the menu has deteriorated dramatically over the past 6 months. I’ve been a regular to the Killingworth Castle for several years as I live locally. It was always a favourite of ours to bring friends and family to the pub - even to put them up in the rooms - as it used to be a fantastic Cotswold staple. Sadly the last meal there will likely be our last as the quality of the food is now very poor. Before, the burgers were large, hand made with a brioche bun. Now the ingredients all appear supermarket bought. The burger patty is small with low grade meat (lots of gristle) and the bun is standard white bread and hard. The chips are clearly from frozen, strangely yellow and simply dumped on the plate with little presentation. We also ordered a chicken dish which was small, tasteless and disappointing. We did mention this to our oblivious serving staff who shrugged our comments off. The Killingworth is now just another very standard pub serving sub standard food. I would suggest visiting for a pint if you’re nearby but go elsewhere to eat. There are better options.
