Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Please note, The Castle is now closed. Time Out Editors.

This black-fronted, pie-slice of a pub is an unlikely place to find such a range of sought-after, high-quality ales. In truth, it’s not a very sympathetic environment: the room is a little characterless and the music is usually too loud.

But the staff do their best and the drinks are decent: you can expect an array of unusual ales, which seem to rotate on a barrel-by-barrel basis. Large taps advertising Peroni and Erdinger Weissbier add variety for drinkers, as do bottled Corona, Beck’s and Budweiser, alongside around a dozen wines of each colour.

The food here is another important feature: doorstep sandwiches stuffed with roast pork; bangers and mash; and burgers. A big fan by the bar counter gives relief in summer; fat candles in glasses provide atmosphere in winter.
