So sad to hear about The Castle shutting down. I spent every weekend between 91 - 94 there. Happy days. Crispin was the best landlord ever! It is interesting to read the other reviews. I don't come to Brentwood much these days. About a year ago a friend and I popped into The Castle for a trip down memory lane only to find all memories had been erased...lump in throat!!!!
The sweaty black leather clad nights, live music, Cripins roast potaoes, John Otway performing headbutt!Beat of the Beast....... Chumbawama!!!EEEK sweat pouring off the ceiling when a gig was in full swing!
Dave Apps (moody in the corner) Andy, Jill, Adam, Cath, Adrian B, Adrian M, Scott and Scott, Matt, Julia all the older but very cool Bikers and Goths, Heaven just pure heaven.............I salute you all and thank you for making the early 90's the time of my life.

reference annonymous's comment

"Many customers moved on under the previous landlord who treated everyone as criminals!"

You obviously were not a regular drinker there, round late 90's early 00's the large proportion of clientel were criminals, or had borderline illegal habbits.
so really its fair to treat everyone as such.

under the management of mick, this pub was spot on a top place on friday nite, good atmosphere if you were open enough to frequent with the customers, not a place for outsiders.

closing nite 2moz, will be there to say goodbye

bit of a dump. only used to go there as some mates knew people there. would have gone elsewhere otherwise. quite a 'grunge/alternative' people pub that is pretty dingy with pretty poor drinks. pool tables are the only real plus point. on a nice note i did steal a sign from there once. go me. erm yeh.
