Inside, "The Castle" the handsome, carefully modernised beamed bar has well made settles forming booths around the tables, cushioned sturdy wall benches, an attractive mullioned window seat in one small alcove, and latticed windows.

"The Castle Inn" used to be in the "Good Pub Guide 2008" but has since dropped out

There isn't a straight wall to this building. In America we would have knocked this down and deemed it unsafe. In England they just carry on as usual. The floors are uneven and the windows are all crooked.
