Maybe the reason why this pub has closed is it's off beat location?
It is out on a limb and needs to be a pub on part of a pub crawl.
I agree with all the comment though on how dirty the place was.

Closed down again, and this time it loks fairly permanent, what with the economic climate and that. No great loss, always was a dump.

I expect a reasonable pub with reasonable music, that's all I ask for. Having never been anywhere need the Castle I fail to see what that has to do with anything (maybe I admit to visting Brazz once or twice in the distant past). I do like a bit of hard rock/metal (honest...!!!), not so keen on them Goths mind but. As for the complaining about other people I suggest MadPete fails to see irony when it appears (and seems to be another BITE one hit wonder...).

I'm not quite sure what the last reviewer is expecting. This is not the Castle Hotel nor does it pretend or claim to be anything like it.
If you don't like hard rock/metal/gothic rock, then don't go there. Its not compulsory. Honestly, some people have nothing better to do than complain about other people. FFS get a life!
Friendly atmosphere, friendly landlord & landlady, good music. What more could anyone ask for?

Quite the contrary regarding quiet classical music. Just accept that people have views conflicting with your own sometimes. If you can't may I suggest it might be you who needs to move on and not bother re-appearing...!!! Your loss mate.
