The Castle Inn reopened on 1st August 2013 following a period when it had been closed. The new Lessees have completely refurbished the pub, bringing The Castle Inn back to its former glory and it is now bustling again as a popular venue for locals, regulars and tourists in this sought after village. The trade is approximately 50/50 split between food and wet trade making this a 'proper' pub. The Castle supports local football and cricket teams and has two darts teams. Food is served daily with a selection of pub favourites at sensible prices with all dishes being freshly prepared, using locally sourced produce where possible. There is also a snack menu and Sunday roasts are very popular, priced at £6.75. The Castle benefits from both Sky and BT Sports, which helps boost trade, particularly at weekends with big sporting events.
The business is currently operated by two family members with the support of part time staff.The Castle Inn is only available due to health reasons and therefore the sale provides a great opportunity for a new owner to drive this business forward from an already established base.Further Profit and Loss trading accounts will be made available to bone fide interested parties following a formal viewing through the Sole Selling Agents, Bettesworths.
