Your Independent Farnham pub, on Castle Street

Welcome to The Castle, an award-winning, beautifully authentic, unfussy gastro pub and restaurant, serving freshly-prepared, quality food, in the heart of Farnham's vibrant town centre at No. 5 Castle Street.

The bar and lounge area offers a relaxing haven on the high street, with a variety of nooks, corners and seating to suit cocktails, coffees and a work-from-the-pub afternoon. Our dining room enjoys a bright and airy feel, with a stunning central skylight, and large windows throughout. Venture out onto our peaceful, covered courtyard garden; a tranquil oasis within the bustle of town life. Upstairs, you'll find our two exceptional private dining spaces: The Library and Market View. These large spaces are beautifully decorated and are ideal for hosting dinner parties, intimate wedding breakfasts, and board meetings.

Great charming restaurant with friendly staff
 
"I recently dined at a charming pub, and it exceeded my expectations, friendly staff created a welcoming atmosphere. The menu offered a delightful variety of pub classics, each dish prepared with precision and bursting with flavor. The portions were generous, and the presentation was impressive. Whether enjoying a hearty burger or a pub specialty, every bite was a culinary delight. The extensive drink selection, including craft beers and inventive cocktails, added to the overall enjoyment.
