In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.
If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
Closed approximately 1896?.
opened 1886 or earlier
grid reference TL 761 446
The former Castle is now a residential property called Danum House.
Although Clare Book II streets says of Danum House "A conversion from a pub named The Castle built in 1896". It's marked on OS maps at least as early as 1886 but it's only shown up to 1897, not appearing on the 1904 and subsequent sheets. So possibly there's a comma missing from the book and it's actually saying that Danum House was built in 1896 on the site of the pub.
The pub is shown on this old OS map from about 1902 (larger map)
