Description:
The Castle Hotel is on Oldham Street in Manchester City Centre, a few hundred
yards or so further down the road from The Night and Day Cafe, The Vinyl
Exchange Record Shop, and Affleks Palace.

It is a real gem of a pub, mainly as it actually is a proper pub!

A Proper pub in Manchester, and a Robinsons too!

The decoration of the outside gives you an impression of what will lye inside.
A proper tatty old robbie's pub.

Enter, and you will be confronted by a small bar room, you will be immediately
surrounded by tradtional pub decor, stools, tables, and a good pub smell.

One of the bar staff will then most likely ask for your order.

On the bar on our visit were all the usual robinson offerings, and a few more.
Robinsons "Unicorn" Bitter, Hatters, Dark Hatters (nice stuff), Old Tom,
Hartleys, and more. Oh and Carling and Guinness.

Prices are good, and the beer tasted fantastic.

Is there any more seating you will be asking? Well, yes, enter the corridor to
your right, and you can either take an immediate left, or carry on.

Lets go left. You enter a little room with a telly, books to read, and proper
copper-top tables. Locals will be here watching the telly, tv sport no doubt.

A window at the back looks into the live band room, which would have been the
next door down from the corridor.

The venue hosts regular live band nights, and a regular acoustic night.

Bands that have played include The Kirkz, and on an acoustic "open mic" night
you might find Andy "Bleeding Hands" Hughes.

This place is brilliant.

Lets check the sh*t houses out, and the end of the aforementioned corridor.

The bogs room is as dark and dingey as the corridor, but here we have a classic sh*thouse!

you will see three grubby urinals on the wall opposite as you enter, p*ss and dirt stained, but with a gem of a modification (see picture), the right-hand most urinal is flushed from a drainpipe inserted into it!

The p*ssers themselves are classic white, plastic piping at the bottom, metal at top, set on white tiling.

They are fed from a single cistern, and the drain pipe, high above on the blue painted walls, alongside graffiti.

Look to your left, and amongst the graffiti you will see the sh*thouse cubicle! you will notice the sink, bog roll holder, and paper towel dispenser as you enter.

The bog is white, with no seat, and was full of sh*te on our visit. it is set on a dark floor. Look above to the cistern, black, sat on what looks like an emergency "stop this from collapsing" shelf, again, lots of nice graffiti tags.

look to the right of the bog, and up, and you will see a pipe, with a tap on it, which has some brown hairy mould growing up the length of it, nice!

This place is a gem from floor to ceiling, look up in the p*ss room to see the mish-mashed celing area, wood, pipes, a window.

What a classic, we would recommend this place highly!

10/10

“I'm so glad this has finally been recognised as a fine place to take a dump. It's somewhere you can imagine all the greats relieving themselves and can only get better with age. Like going to a far of continent, it's almost magical in it's appeal and similarly, you might want to make sure you've had your shots before you visit. ”

“I took a dump here, slipped into the bowl, splashed filthy sh*twater all over my pants and cut me leg on a rusty pipe. Gave me faecal septicemia. Fantastic toilet. Recommended.

10/10”
