About the Pub

A welcoming pub that opened in October 2016 on the old Halfway House site. Just one room with big picture windows, a high ceiling with plaster cornicing, sports TV screens and an attractive old-fashioned bar gantry. A large photograph of HMS Dreadnought, with her 12" guns facing you, hangs on the wall, along with other nautical items. The Brass Castle beers are all vegan. No food is prepared on site but pizza and burgers can be ordered from multiple local outlets - menus are at the bar. A wheelchair ramp is available but no disabled toilet. Children are not admitted.
