A late start with the train cancelled because of a tree on the line. Sodden squelchy fields and flooded paths added to the adventure. But, by arriving late at the Castle we were able to get a table and quick service. Having just missed a train back, the Ostrich gave us a very warm welcome, despite us being quite muddy. Would recommend building a visit to this pub as part of your day out (they have a good choice of tea, but no cake).
