Your Independent Farnham pub, on Castle Street

Welcome to The Castle, a beautifully authentic, and 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.

We're open 7 days a week, serving up a seasonal menu with pub favourites, and a daily changing specials board featuring fresh produce from our wonderful suppliers. Our skilful chefs use the finest seasonal ingredients to curate dishes that celebrate authentic gastropub cooking, bringing a contemporary twist to the nation's favourite foods.


A great Sunday Roast Dinner
"A great Sunday roast dinner with my family, including a nine year old. The food was superb with great quality roast beef and roast pork. These were accompanied by a very good selection of vegetables and Yorkshire Puddings. The meat was exceptionally tender and all the food was hot, which is great considering that it was a very busy service. The portions were good and the meal was great value. All the staff were very friendly and attentive which together with the food, made for a very good lunch."

Good Food, Great Staff, Nice Location
"The Castle staff are excellent. It makes a real difference to go somewhere where the staff really care about what they do. On top of that the food is great and the 2 course lunchtime / weekday offer is good value".

Lovely space with great food
"Lovely place in the centre of town. We sat in the spacious dog friendly bar area. Service and food were both excellent with a wide range of choices. We had one of the sharing platters to start, the fish special and a lovely lemon tart. Everything was beautifully cooked and presented. It has become our first choice when visiting the area".
