Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Castle Inn presents a fantastic opportunity for the new publican to take a beautiful well-presented traditional pub. The business is currently trading as a wet-led business, with cask ales and craft beers, playing a role in its success. There is a small food offer with an opportunity to develop it further to supplement the wet trade and appeal to the passing custom.
