Decent pub with good food and a reasonable selection of beverages. Would be rated higher if there was more outdoor space.

So pleased we found this place. Stayed the weekend in Newbury with my 10yr old and after reading through reviews on here decided to try this pub. Very good food, home cooked, hot and well presented. Plenty of choice on the menu (children's menu also) and specials board. The staff very friendly and welcoming. Toilets kept clean also. Great location was easy to find with a lovely park opposite with well maintained children's play equipment, climbing frames, swing, slide and a zip wire. Looking forward to returning here later in the year with the rest of the family.

We broke our journey to have lunch at The Castle and were very glad that we did. A lovely pub with friendly service. A nice menu including gluten free options if you ask.

Went to the castle today for a family meal, chosen on reading reviews. The menu has a great choice and the specials board had as big a choice the main menu, all home cooked. There were 7 of us, we all had something different and were all really pleased with our food. Desserts also superb. They have a large courtyard garden, pool table and giant connect four which kept an eight year old very happy. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again.
