The pub was built in 1898 and looks like its name, a castle with ramparts.
Situated in the centre of the city of Bradford, just off Westgate, it is to the west of the city near the Colour Museum. The Castle is only five minutes from the bus and train stations (Forster Square and the Interchange), ten minutes from the M62 and thirty minutes from the airport.
The single bar is 'L' shaped and has two exists to the street. One has steps and the other is on street level and more accessible by wheelchair users. To step into the Castle is to step right back into the 1970s. It has a feel that time has passed it by, but it still has the warm feeling of a family front room and that is welcome in these cold times.
They serve Ruddles Best plus two guests - Tower and Goose Eye this time. Both are served with the sparkler, though do try beers without them if you dare to ask - well I got a strange look.
Prices are not too bad, but not as cheap as the Fighting Cock. Unfortunately there is no food served here, but the New Beehive Inn just up the road does.
Accommodation here, from £28 plus breakfast.
