Welcome to Colchester's Castle Inn

 

a friendly public house with great food and drink


 

 

 

 

There has been a public house continuously on this site since around 1690, but the site is much older.


Workmen undertaking repairs in 1986 dug up four skeletons around 1,200 years old.


Today we have a great atmosphere and whether you are a local or a visitor you will enjoy our friendly establishment.

We are situated within a few feet of the main entrance to the Castle Grounds.
