Description:
The Castle, one of the most weird and wonderful pubs you'll ever visit.

The building is very old, one of the oldest in Macc i should imagine.

The pub has many old features, and is decorated with brass ware, and other old trinkets, which give the pub a very warm and friendly feel.

The bar is to your right as you enter, and the pub is divided into many little sectioned off rooms.

There is even a regulars only room to the front of the bar, so we have to be served at the back entrance.

The larger-than-life bar man will greet you with a "Yes Please, Gentlemen" in a very camp way, as you approach the bar.

What bitters is there "Theakstons", i think i'll settle for Guinness, or Kronenbourg is also available.

Thee is a very limited bottle selection, but there is not much call for it here, Coca-Cola is seved fresh from a tin-can!!

There is a choice of seating areas to choose from.

Behind the bar is usually full, and often hosts guitar sing-a-long folk sessions.

To the front there is a cosy little room with a fire-place.

I think we'll go in the raised seating, some steps lead upto a square area with 3 tables and a dartboard, plenty of room.

The bogs are through a door under the stairs, might be a little chilly!

You enter via a corridor which is littered with Guinness bottles, which to my knowledge have been there for years.

Through a dark blue door, you enter a light blue toilet room.

An old stone is on you far left, opposite it is the cubicle. To your right is the sink area.

The p*sser is fairly old, but quite plain, i'd say room for 4 or 5 men, but you're usually the only sole in there!

The bog is white with a modern wooden seat, the cistern is high up on the wall, and is pull-chain operated, not many of those left in pubs nowadays, top hat!

The sink area is fairly basic too, hand soap is provided, and a towel dispenser, back past the Guinness Original bottles as you leave!

8/10

Update - March 2006 - Ladies Toilets.

The Ladies Bogs in The Castle are a simple affair, painted in pink, and rucked away under the stairs, just before you turn left to the gents bogs.

You enter a small washroom, with two white sinks on your right, a hand towel dispenser, and a bin, there is also a mirror. Soap is available too.

Opposite these is the singular cubicle, see picture.

It is a white bog with brown wooden deat, enclosed in a cubicle with a nice pink latched door, quite an unusual cistern top, but welcome all the same.

There was a plethora of bog rolls on a recent visit.

All in all, the girls bogs complement the gents bogs very well, with the blue and pink themes.

Why not call in soon, have a meal at lunch, Sausage Egg and Chips, with a pint of Theakstons, and then go for a crap!

8/10

Update - September 2008:
Went in the Castle Inn bogs tonight, urinal was cold and drippy, but in good smellage due to the air fresheners on the window sill.

There was a treat in the toilet cubicle, on the cistern by the pull chain reads a message...

"Please Pull Carefully.. Thanking You"

Written by landlord Mr Nick Wood himself, and encompassing his "Thanking You" catch phrase, genius!

There was also an array of half used loo rolls on the window sill, nice!

8/10 Toilets, Top Class Pub!
