Latest comment about the Castle:

I was on the island for the Beer & Buses weekend (14 & 15th October 2017) and luckily this pub was nearest to my hotel. In the Stables annex there were ten or so guest beers and three or four superb guest ciders. In the main bar there were four or five guest beers including HOBGOBLIN GOLD, GODDARD'S IPA (£2.80/pint) and FUGGLES DEE DEE. Every beer I tried was in superb nick. The whole pub had been decorated in original fashion for Halloween. These decorations are really worth going to see, as they are not your standard shop-bought tripe. The whole pub resembles a Wax Museum. For smokers/vapers there is a very nice beer garden patrolled by two lovely cats, Tia and Maria. The owners and the locals were friendly and approachable. I spent 4 days travelling all over the island, but the Castle was so good I made up a poem: Though I have searched the Island round, The Castle is the best pub to be found. Don't miss it!

Beautiful beer garden. Wonderful place to spend a summers day. Trouble is, spent most of it waiting at the bar to be served at the bar. Wasn't even particularly busy.

Further to previous posts, I've been in here once since it reinvented itself. Sadly, no real ale and prices exorbitant! Food however reportedly excellent!
