Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Castle Mona

Traditional community local set on a street corner, with a wood-panelled lounge on one side of the servery and a more basic bar (with pool table and table skittles) on the other. Surprisingly, there is also a part-patio / part-grass beer garden at the back. Two of three handpumps on each counter in use, including Bass and real ales from Joule's and Salopian.

A proper street corner local with two rooms wrapped around a central bar. It opens at 4pm and apparently the regulars call in here on their way home from work, and a different and probably quieter crowd attend in the evenings. I was immediately enveloped in conversation, starting with the barman shrewdly identifying that I was on a reconnaissance for a pub crawl. The unrelenting chatter meant that my notes on this visit were somewhat perfunctory. There are two hand pumps on the side of the bar where I found myself, with four more in the room opposite. Bombardier and Joules Slumbering Monk were the ones I could see, but it will require another visit to determine what was on the other side - I believe I can recall that there were just three beers on. This was my pub of the day for friendliness and atmosphere, though to be fair the beer was nothing special compared with some of the others visited on the day.

Excellent little boozer just off the main London Rd. A good selection of beer styles available and local ales available too. Plenty of ciders and wines on sale also. Two roomed and friendly.
