We're Back

It is with great pleasure that we can announce that The Castle Pub is back, and ready to serve!
At the entrance to historic Colchester Castle, The Castle Pub has been a public house since 1690. 
Serving a menu of homemade comforting meals, lighter bites and childrens menu all freshly cooked and made to order. 
You can find a comfy spot in the bar, restaurant area or outside in the courtyard on sunny days.
Whether it's a meal, a pint or one of our vast range of spirits and soft drinks we've got you covered.

We're opening limited hours due to the current ongoing crisis and are exceptionally busy, so we recommend phoning on 01206 563988 to book a table.

Due to the recent voting of the MPs deciding not to feed children during half term, The Castle Inn Pub is happy to announce that we are going to be among the establishments who are offering free meals for children through this half term.

We are happy to support our community during these difficult times. From the 28/10/2020 until the 01/11/2020 any child under 16 will receive a free meal from our children’s menu.
