ROB Camra left this review about The Castle

Visited this excellent pub just before the review below, but failed to get the review sorted out in time. :-)) We sat in the room to the left of the entrance which is very atmospheric, Ms CAMRA loved it. According to the guys just up the road at the Wet Led Bar it cost the new owners almost £250,000 to get this reopened. Well done guys, it was money well spent in our opinion. We'll come back and spend some more of our money with you next time we're in Macc, which will be soon.

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

First visit since its thankful reopening, this is indeed a venerable survivor. Handily placed between the town centre and station, but tucked away in a side street halfway up the hill. It retains a multi-room layout, with the 'main' bar at the front (little bigger than a snug) and a slightly bigger lounge beyond the central servery. Both of these spaces are characterful, but the side room on the other side of the entrance corridor is a real gem, and further seating is available in another larger room at the back. Although it only has three handpumps, these offer real ales in different styles, ranging from the Bosley Cloud pale from Storm Brewing to Red Willow's Feckless bitter (£3.90) and the Wantsum Black Prince from Kent. Excellent place.

Reopened after a long closure,this CAMRA Nationally Important Interior must be seen by all pub lovers.There are so many original features,the ceilings are low and the atmosphere terrific.The cosy island bar serves a small front tap room,a rear saloon not much bigger and a corridor hatch serving area for the side snug and anyone drinking further back or in the garden.
There are 3 handpumps serving a rotating selection from some fine regional brewers judging by the pump clips on display.On my trip RedWillow Feckless (NBSS 4.5),Beartown Polar Eclipse (NBSS 4.5) and Wincle Bengal Buttress.Ale is served in dimple glasses and the bar staff were friendly ,chatty and very informative.
This is a classic small town centre pub and is an absolute must visit in Macc.I will stay a lot longer on my next visit.
