    The Castle: A Proper Pub :)

    by johngayton Updated Jan 5, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was out for a swift beer intending to head back to Polska Chata for dinner. This is the pub that my good old beer nose sniffed out! Yep - It rarely let's me down and certainly didn't do so here.

    A cheery "Good Evening!" from the landlady and a trio of hand-pumps instantly made me welcome. As befits any proper pub there was a mixed crowd - a slightly rowdy group of youngsters joshing each other good-naturedly at one end of the bar; a well-dressed middle-aged foursome, obviously out for a pre-dinner drink, occupying centre-stage, with myself and another similarly-aged guy at the other end. A few more youngsters were knocking back shooters round a table whilst a couple of twenty-something blokes were shooting pool.

    The pub looked as if it last had a major refurb about twenty years previously by someone quite sympathetic to trying to theme it as a pub. The twenty years of aging and bodged repairs having finally developed the character that perhaps the original themester had aimed for.

    An excellent pint of "Black Sheep" went down a treat and a second duly ordered. A mutual cigarette break on the heated patio served to commence the usual shooting of the bull - first about the weather, next about the beer.

    "What's that Black Sheep like?"

    "A nice clean bitter beer, from up North somewhere, Yorkshire, I think. It's in perfect nick"

    "Think I'll try one myself...Yep, not a bad pint at all."

    Before I knew it I was draining my third!

    I was getting a bit too comfortable. A fourth would have had me there for the night and a greasy kebab for supper. Regretfully I bade my farewells.

    Good pub!
