Once upon a time, even though it's in the heart of hectic Holborn, this quiet, smallish pub was far enough off the beaten track for it to be a refuge for those looking for an undisturbed drink. Now, it's in the hands of the same people who look after The Bell (on Cannon Street) and the Wheatsheaf in Borough Market, the Castle is a rejuvenated pub. The main draw now is the real ale selection, with the pub offering up to eight, regularly-rotating, guest beers and, you'll be in for a treat with a good range of unusual and well-kept ales on offer. The food is simple pub grub, which goes very well with the beers on offer and the quality's pretty decent too, sourced locally from Smithfield and Borough Markets and priced pretty cheaply. As it's not the largest of pubs and its popularity has, understandably increased, it has become become a lot busier. If you haven't already done so, you should definitely give the Castle a look.

Went there with a few friends last night pre-dinner, very busy but managed to get a table in the upstairs bar. The barlady was excellent, gave advice on the ales and then went downstairs to pour them. Fab service and friendly pub.

My random second stop on my pub crawl was The Castle. Looking at the Fancyapint review I must have caught the pub on a bad day. The choice of beer was great, and the Mordue Geordie Pride was excellent (one of the best pints this year). Unfortunately, at 2pm the place was empty apart from a couple of probable CAMRA members doing their thing. Shame.
