An EC1 pub with a right royal past
The understated appeal of The Castle conceals a regal past that's the stuff of pub legend. This refreshingly down-to-earth Farringdon public house was once frequented by King George IV, who was tempted in by a spot of cockfighting. Arriving without money, he promptly issued the pub with a pawnbroker's licence and handed over his gold watch to fund a flutter. Today, you'll be relieved to hear, The Castle is favoured for its sublime selection of beers and stunning function room rather than feuding poultry.
