The Early Bath is a great community pub with an atmosphere second to none on match days. Unlike most pub companies with a pub so close to a sports ground the owners Quality Taverns have kept bar prices low as standard in all there sites. £1.75 for a pint of Fosters and £1.95 for Carling. Penny the landlady tells me they have a Great Clubroom/function suite upstairs thats available for free hire, and is used for advertised theme nights. She also tells me that she will soon be open and serving match day burgers and hotdogs from a hatch at the side of the pub and open during the week for the best value and best tasting breakfasts in Castleford.....

This pub stands just 100 yards from the Castleford Tigers RL ground.
It used to be called simply "The Bath", but was renamed in the late 1970's as "The Early Bath" - a term associated with a Rugby player who has been sent off!
The opening ceremony was done by Eddie Waring's widow (Eddie Waring was the first to coin this phrase!)
From the 1970's this has been the home base of the Lock Lane ARLFC up until it vacated to the Britannia in Lock Lane.
The pub closed in 2005 and for a time was used as a store room for lawnmowers!
The pub got a lick of paint and reopened in December 2007.
Gets very busy on match days.
For a short period at the turn of this century, the pub was called O'Keith's Irish Bar after it's then landlord.
