Welcome to Colchester's Castle Inn

 

a friendly public house with great food and drink

 

 

 

There has been a public house continuously on this site since around 1690, but the site is much older.


Workmen undertaking repairs in 1986 dug up four skeletons around 1,200 years old.


Today we have a great atmosphere and whether you are a local or a visitor you will enjoy our friendly establishment.

We are situated within a few feet of the main entrance to the Castle Grounds.

We boast

great drink selection
great fresh food from a constanly changing menu
outdoor area for drinking and smoking - heated if required
private function room
special nights
entertainment
friendly staff

assistance for disabled

well behaved dogs welcome
   

 

Here is a taster of what awaits you
