Horrible smelling pub, staff look like they would rather spit at you than serve you a drink (that's over priced), the landlady looks like something out of a sketch show and as far as i can tell this is where you end up when you've been thrown out of everywhere else.

Slow service from barstaff who think that texting their mates is more important than their job, truly awful loos, over-priced drinks (poorly poured), a good chance of a free punch with every pint, Wayne & Waynetta having a full-on domestic row, screaming brats in the 'beer garden' during the summer - all in all precisely what you would expect from a Colchester town centre pub...

Extremely unfriendly bar staff, very expensive drinks, disgusting toilets. Avoid like the plague.

I recently visited The Castle and found it to be an exceptionally well run establishment. The landord and landlady were friendly and inviting and struck up conversation with patrons, The barstaff were really quick on service and full of friendly banter. Food is generous in portions and very good in quality and presentation, It is traditional 'pub food' and Sunday roast fare rather then the 'up market gastro pub food'. There was an excellent selection of drinks and I settled on one of the real ales they offer, which couldn't be falted. Toliets were clean, soap dispensers full and plenty of toilet roll. There was a seperate function room of a very good standard thou this wasnt in use at the time I visited. Plenty of comfortable seating inside and out, Sofas as well as the more typical wooden chairs. There was a TV showing sports channels but at a volume where it didnt disturb people not wanting to watch this, A couple of fruit machines. Smoking area/outdoor patio with ample seating.
No doorstaff, but when a few young lads did start a bit of bother in the beer garden towards closing time, the landlord and landlady were straight on it, taking drinks away from those that were beginning to kick off and escorting them from the premises, It was clear that whilst friendly banter and lively revellers are welcome, that any nonsense or agressive is swiftly dealt with.
Will definately go back and encourage others to visit.
