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.

Best pub in Farnham
"This is our second visit to the best pub in Farnham. The pub is just beautiful and the garden area is stunning. I ordered the chorizo burger and my husband ordered the veggie pie. Both were delicious. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive. I would certainly recommend a visit to this lovely pub."

Fabulous 30th birthday celebrations
"I hired one of the Castle’s private rooms for my 30th birthday. I was so, so impressed from start to finish! From the communication beforehand regarding pre-orders and payment. To the day when the room set up was absolutely faultless, I didn’t have to lift a finger. Staff were attentive and professional. Highly recommend."
