Castle Inn16 Fore Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
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 with its open beams and slate floors is characterful, with numerous nautical artefacts depicting the past, and stained glass windows at the front.. Of the beer selection (up to 6 in summer, four in winter) 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 but simple pub food is available, and there is also a large selection of gins and tonics behind the bar. Quiz night is Mondays (20:30)
