Known locally as the "Glue Pot", the Castle Arms is located in the historic settlement of Castletown, the former capital of the Isle of Man and once the seat of the Tynwald government (believed to be the oldest in continuous existence in the world). We popped in for swift refreshment following a visit to the castle, en route to the airport, after a weekend on the island. And we were very glad we did. Visually, the pub has a superb setting, tucked in between Castle Rushen and the harbour, with outside seating provided so one may enjoy this view to the fullest. Amongst the regulars is said to be a near-tailless Manx cat (an increasingly rare sight nowadays), but disappointingly it did not make an appearance for us. Beer-wise, as is usually the case in these parts, Okells Bitter was on offer, and it was very well-casked, though we were a touch disappointed not to see a wider selection, which fact for now precludes a four-pint rating (as it is, it's a top-end three-pinter). There is a dining room upstairs, but this was not sampled on our visit. If there is a pub with a more attractive setting on the island, we didn't find it.
