About
A Holland Park pub without the pomp and ceremony.Sandwiched between Notting Hill and Shepherd's Bush, The Castle is a Holland Park pub with a drinks list as gloriously diverse as the locals who frequent it. Sumptuous red velvet interiors, over-sized chandeliers and reclaimed wooden furniture all combine to create a friendly bohemian vibe. Soak up the contagious atmosphere of our open plan front-room, or find an intimate corner in our cosy back-room to unwind with old friends over a bottle of our favourite pinot noir.
