THE STORY OF The Castle

The Castle is located in historic Farringdon within the City of London’s square mile, a stone’s throw from iconic Smithfield Market. Housed in a Grade II listed building, The Castle is steeped in history and holds a pawnbroker’s licence that was issued by King George IV; the story goes that the King exchanged his gold pocket watch for money with the Landlord, to fund a flutter on the cockfights hosted by the pub.

Mixing exposed brickwork, traditional wood panelling and contemporary touches, The Castle offers a comfortable and spacious bar area in which to relax and unwind after a hard day’s graft.  Buzzing with customers out front during those milder months, the Castle reflects the upbeat vibe of its Farringdon neighbourhood and holds the authenticity of a true British local close to its heart

Within easy reach of the rest of the City by bus, tube or on foot, one of the area’s most established watering holes, this friendly pub remains enduringly popular with local residents and workers alike, as well as visitors to the capital.  Just across the road from Farringdon tube and mainline station, The Castle is easy to find but perhaps a little harder to leave…
