**There has been new management since the one star review in 2013 below!!**
My family have visited The Castle in Abergele on a number of occasions. There is always a warm welcome from the landladies Hannah and Katie. The Castle has not long gone under a refurbishment which has made the place lovely. I believe that they put a lot of effort into organising and running things during the evenings such as quizzes etc however I am yet to go to one of these. There is also a pool table, darts board for any sports fans! If you're looking for fairly priced drinks, a friendly cosy atmosphere or something to do of an evening, The Castle is the go to place! Hopefully more people will leave reviews to further show what a truly well-run place this is.

Really great pub, well kept beer, friendly bar staff, but spoilt by group of old men of of limited intelligence and vocabulary, every second word was f*******, at the bar. So ok as long as you not with family or a lady. Good for single men to watch sport, have a few beers in comfortable surroundings, and not offended by foul mouthed morons

We arrived around 4pm to be met at reception by very attentive and pleasant staff.
Our room was excellent and had a very comfortable (massive) bed, and private bathroom.
The surprise 80th birthday party was well organised by the staff, in a private room.
The meal was fantastic. The General Manager, Joe, was brilliant. He really looked after us all and was even there early the next morning for a full Welsh breakfast.
Well done to all the team at The Castle.

I visited the Castle earlier this year, I am surprised that the place hasn't had its license revoked. The language from the locals was one thing, but the lack of cleanliness and the stench of 'herbal cigs' crossed with urine was not pleasant. As the football was on the first time, I tried it again recently, it was the same, they even had white powder on the toilets? New cleaning product? I doubt it. AVOID COMPLETELY.

This is the nearest put to where I live and really didn't like the Castle before - however, since it's had a brilliant refurb all over (the toilets are unrecognisable to how they used to be) and new owners, this place is now lovely - cosy, clean and modern - but not TOO modern. The owners are friendly and approachable and are keen to try new things like Comedy and Open Mic nights - I look forward to visiting again soon! :-)

I have recently started to frequent the castle since the new landlady came in and all I can say is what a change. The atmosphere is friendly, its clean and they hayce a great selection of J. W. Lees cask ales. Theee is a quiz with a meat auction every thursday evening and regular entertainment on a fri night. If you like your darts or pool this pub is a must with two dartboards and free pool on a mon evening.

The two female staff are marvellous they are so warm hearted and friendly people it's amazing the quotes in the walls and beer mats are kind of intriguing.
