Castle Inn16 Fore Street
This friendly town centre pub has been established since at least 1841 and is thought to have formed part of the offices of the Union Castle shipping line. The comfortable and roomy single bar is characterful, with numerous nautical artefacts depicting the past. Of the beer selection (up to 7 in summer) there is usually a Skinner's beer or two mixed in with a couple of nationally-available brands and representation from microbreweries. The pub also offers two or three varied real ciders or a perry. A busy pub with broad-based local support, the atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming. Good pub food is available with a wide and varied menu. The pub may stay open beyond 23:00 if busy.
