The Lawn at Castle Hill Inn
The epitome of classic New England dining, our rolling lawn is a timeless Newport icon. After decades of entertaining, The Lawn at Castle Hill is as much a tradition as it is a restaurant. This time of year, we offer the menu of casual favorites from the comfort of the historic mansion with ocean-view windows on all sides – as well as in the cozy Mansion Bar. There is no better way to spend a crisp fall afternoon than with a cup of our classic clam chowder, a succulent burger, or a spiked glass of mulled wine. Each Sunday our chefs prepare traditional brunch items paired with live jazz music as well, a perfect way to round out a winter weekend. Reservations are available for lunch & brunch beginning at 11:30am, while the Mansion Bar is “first-come, first served.”
Incredible view. Service was perfect. Food was excellent
Thank you jaj2000. We really appreciate your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again.
Jazz brunch on Sunday, food was amazing, service was excellent, view was spectacular and the 3 piece band was perfect. We had a great table at the window. They had a hash special with eggs that was delicious.
Thank you for joining us Doug and glad you enjoyed your brunch. The hash special was certainly a favorite this weekend so happy you liked it too. Hope we see you back here again soon.
Food was delicious. Views outstanding. Astrid provided excellent service and was most attentive to our needs.
Thank you! Very happy to hear you enjoyed and that Astrid took good care of you.
Everything was great as always

Beautiful dining area! Service and food top notch! Would love to go back!!!
Thank you Cricket! We are so happy you enjoyed.
First time visiting. Quite a nice sunny room for a winter view. Food was fabulous. Innovative and large portions. Banana bread was out of this world. Will try to visit in the summer although will have to plan way ahead
Thank you for joining us Betsy. We are glad you enjoyed and look forward to seeing you again this summer.
Ladies Christmas lunch! It is always a treat to go to Castle Hill!
Thank you MaryFran! Very happy you and the ladies enjoyed.
Thank you Phyllis!
Elegant dining in a most spectacular setting. Had a lovely Christmas lunch with friends during a break from touring the mansions decorated in all their finery. The Castle Hill Inn is such a lovely addition to the grandeur that is Newport with food and beverage to match. We each got something different and enjoyed every morsel of it. I had salmon, there was a soup/sandwich order and the chicken salad. We were properly nourished and enjoyed blood orange Bellinis to complete the meal.
Thank you for joining us for your lunch vkk32 and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed. The holidays are a magical time around Newport and we are glad we could add to the festive grandeur. Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you again.
Our server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful . I have several allergies and intolerances to foods and she and the chef created an outstanding brunch for me. The entire experience was delightful.
Thank you Maria! Making sure our guests with allergies and sensitivities are well taken care of is something we believe in and our whole team is committed to ensuring their safety. We are glad you enjoyed.
We were there for a late lunch celebrating my husband's birthday. It was such a nice leisurely afternoon with cocktails and delicious sandwiches (the best french dip sandwich I have ever had - and lobster salad sandwich for my husband). Since we Ubered there, we decided to stay for cocktails by the fireplace and Christmas Tree... and what a wonderful treat that was.
We are so glad you celebrated with us and glad you both enjoyed it all. We look forward to seeing you again.
The service was a little slow, I think there was only one server spread across our whole room and at least part of another room too. So we had to wait a while for things like water top up, paying the bill, etc.
I wish there were more vegetarian and at least one singular vegan option, not much to choose from, but still the food we got was nice. They advertise a full vegetarian menu on their website but I guess that’s for dinner!
Very sorry to hear this Kelsey. That's not typical of the exceptional standards of service for which we are known. We will review with our team to make sure we stay atop all our guests' needs. We will also share your vegan/vegetarian suggestions with our culinary team too. We appreciate the honest feedback and hope your next visit is of our more typical five-star quality.
We have been coming to Castle Hill for 20 years and ALWAYS go to brunch - it NEVER disappoints!
It's truly an honor to have been a place you have returned to for two decades. Thank you for your patronage and your review. We look forward to having the pleasure of serving you again soon.
My Daughter’s Birthday....
We are thrilled you celebrated with us.
Great meal in a beautiful setting.
Thank you! We are very happy you enjoyed.
We had a delicious lunch on Friday at the Inn at Castle Hill. Our food was fresh and nicely presented. Our waitress Isa was so helpful in food recommendation and quick to rescue our table with a spill from a little one. Our experience at the Inn at Castle Hill was a welcoming reprieve from the busy Thanksgiving preparations and a relaxing way to begin the Christmas season. We highly recommended this restaurant!
Thank you Bob. We are thrilled to have earned your recommendation and so glad you enjoyed. We will pass along your compliments to Isa. We hope we see you again for another relaxing visit.
Excellent!!! I have always enjoyed visiting Castle Hill. The atmosphere is amazing and the waiter/waitress team are personable, professional and knowledgeable. In the summer the valet team are also personal and professional. Anything that my husband, guest or me have ordered has been amazing. I have also been there for weddings.
Castle Hill absolutely gets a 5+ rating!
Thank you! We are so very happy you enjoyed and thrilled to earn a 5+ star rating. We hope you will join us again so we can once again have the pleasure of serving you.
This is a hidden gem.What a view and service and lunch was awesome
Thank you Frank! We are a bit off the main drive in Newport but we are glad you found us. Hope we see you again.

An unbelievable setting on the Narangasett Bay. The menu was varied. The food was well prepared and plated. An outstanding lunch!!!
Thank you Bernie! We are very happy you enjoyed your lunch and your view. We hope you come back again to enjoy more.
We had a beautiful lunch inside, overlooking the water on a rainy afternoon during a storm. Something about it was still romantic. The watermelon salad was delicious and the chicken salad sandwich was good too. Portions were large. The red sangria special was very good as well. Our server was great, I forgot her name though. Worth the time to have lunch or dinner here. Separate bar area looked cozy too.
Thank you for joining us Nicole!
Service was slow and hard to get assistance when we wanted
Lovely jazz brunch with an amazing view. Wait staff was slow to get started, then ok once into the swing of things. Food was very good. The weather cooperated and we were able to sit outside.
Thank you for joining us Piggy638!
Wonderful al fresco dining with a view! Get there early and enjoy a cocktail on the lawn while watching the boats go by!
It's one of our favorite things to do too (when we are not working of course!). Thank you for the review.
Very accommodating. Beautiful view. Food was outstanding. Waited for reservation on Lawn with Adirondack chairs.
Thank you for joining us!
Brunch was spectacular. They took my gluten allergy very seriously and went above and beyond to accommodate me. The view was breathtaking and the jazz music made it romantic and relaxing. Would highly recommend!
Thanks for the recommendation VanessaK! It is important to us to provide the most detailed attention to a guest's dietary and allergy restrictions. Happy to hear you enjoyed a wonderful experience brunching with us! Hope to see you again soon.
Service, food and ambiance were amazing! We can't wait to come back!
Can't wait to have you back JanieO! Glad to hear everything was amazing.
As part of our anniversary trip, we had to have lunch on the Lawn. The surroundings are perfect but the food and service are insanely terrific. Good selection of specialty cocktails. We make sure we visit Castle Hill Inn every time we visit Newport! Love it!
Thank you for celebrating with us! We are glad you always look forward to spending a special day with us when you are in Newport. Hope to see you again soon!
Castle Hill Inn was our favorite experience in Newport. Best view that we found. Laid-back vibe. One of the best meals of our trip. Staff is great. Went for happy hour on Friday and back for lunch on Saturday. We won't go back to Newport without spending time at Castle Hill Inn.
That's great to hear MattR! We appreciate your review and hope to see you again soon.
The view is spectacular and the food is amazing! A perfect place to relax and unwind!
Couldn't agree more with you KennethG! Thanks for visiting.
Always beautiful, always delicious. Every trip to Newport includes this unique dining experience.
Thank you for joining us again SnoozyQzee! Glad to hear we once again served a delicious meal with the most spectacular view! See you soon.
Always love to have lunch on the patio at the Lawn At Castle Hill Inn. Great food, good service and the best view anywhere around.
Castle Hill never disappoints - one of the most fantastic views in the world. Sweeping views of Newport harbor form the deck and the Adirondack chairs. Our waiter PJ was great and the seafood mostly locally sourced was fresh and well prepared.
Thank you AlanB!
Patrick was an amazing and attentive waiter. Not at all intrusive but checked in appropriately. The food was so delicious and presented beautifully. Truly our go to restaurant in Newport, and how about the magnificent ocean views? Just go and enjoy, you will never be disappointed!
Thank you for the review and recommendation Joanh1! Happy to hear you enjoyed a wonderful experience.
Food took too long to come out. Came out cold
The whole experience at The lawn at Castle Hill was great. The ambiance, food and waitstaff are top notch. The only thing I would recommend is a more extensive menu.
