Tucked away at the easterly side of the City, at the junction of Furnival Street and Norwich Street, close
to Chancery Lane tube station is the Castle. Recently been taken into
the Red Car family of pubs, along with two other
notable City pubs, The Swan Tavern & The
Bell. As with the other Red Car pubs the The Castle offers
a true delight in cask ale, with a constantly rotating selection of seven
beers all of which are kept to a high standards.
This is definitely a pub in the true sense of the word and I would recommend a visit.
If you head north on Furnival Street to High Holburn and turn left towards Chancery Lane tube you will find one of the best examples of Tudor archietecture in London. It dates from 1586 and, although restored, would be still be recognisable to those who had known when it was first built.
