As the Castle Inn, this pub dates back to at least 1740 but I suspect that it was rebuilt in the early 20th century.
As mentioned, this pub pretty much redefines industrial, savaged to a greater extent only by BrewDog’s maulings. Enormous in depth, there’s a modern floor, then walls are bare brick, a little grey paint or much applied wooden planking, especially to the bar which has a top and front plated with the stuff, along with a tubular steel shelf rack and similar gantry. There’s a huge clock over a disused bare brick fireplace, whilst on high, there’s very extensive, industrial and ugly galvanized ductwork along with huge oversized metal lampshades; furniture is mixed though accessorised. There’s a freestanding cantilevered staircase to the first floor, with glass panels in place of bannisters; in all, it looks like an explosion in a branch of Travis Perkins. Customers were young professional types and trade was brisk, but the overall experience was somewhat overwhelming due to the poor acoustics.
I didn’t spot the brewing paraphernalia mentioned by Rex, so perhaps it’s gone. Thereafter, ales amounted to Original, Special and Proper Job at a very expensive £2.80 a half, though good, served by an automated barman.
This really isn’t a great pub, me preferring something considerably more traditional. However, it’s better all round than the Long Room and provides a better pub experience than the King’s Head; the obvious choice if in this locality is the Antelope though.

Any former charisma this pub may have had has long since been knocked out of it, now bland and gastrosised lacking in any ambiance whatsoever.
Six pumps on the bar but only two on, strangely both Sambrooks in this youngs pub, though the barman was pulling something new through the pipes,I didn't hang around to find out what.
