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.
The pub itself has a traditional feel, the food is good pub grub.

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.
