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!

Visited this pub on a couple of occasions recently when I needed to get away from my tour group. Well kept ales, a clean bar and friendly staff all made for a great experience.

This pub seems one of the most thriving pubs I've visited on the island. The beer was well kept and had a mix of locals and tourists to keep it busy. The quiz night was busy and they are open later than other places. Definitely a unique pub and some good beers on offer.
