See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Dating from 1740s the pub was acquired by Adnams in 1994 and respectfully renovated by them. Family run, it offers a great selection of the brewery's own beers, plus their seasonal offerings and two or more changing guests. Originally two buildings, they have been combined to give a number of separate drinking areas over two floors, including a downstairs snug. To the rear is a suntrap garden next to the mound of the long-gone castle. Excellent food served every session, including a wide selection of specials and a Sunday Roast & Carvery. The Castle Inn's long-standing licensee left in November 2022. It reopened in January 2023 with new tenants who also run the Alex and the Portland.
