Concur with the previous poster... ale is second rate here and takes second place to 'reserved' tables for "gourmet" burgers. Had a very bland pint of black sheep (which was the most exotic brew on offer). Definitely worth swerving for the ale when a decent alehouse is a few yards up the road.

I really have no idea how this has won the North Beds CAMRA pub of the year for 2016. Plenty of better pubs both in the town and surrounding areas that would be more deserving. Still, after 30 years or more of going to pubs, what do I know....?

Comfortable, friendly and welcoming pub a short wall from Bedford High Street. Convenient for the auction rooms opposite. Three Young's beers and a guest on when we visited. Polite bar staff and good outside area for summer drinking. In response to previous reviews the Three Cups nearby looked rather cliquey, The Castle is a much better bet.

Agree with the review below. Nothing spectacular, but a nice enough pub nonetheless, with a friendly welcome. Expensive too, with prices around the £3.70 mark for around 3.5%ish beers. Considering the much lower prices and better choice of the Three Cups almost next door, I know where I'd rather go.

Decent enough but unspectacular, CAMRA conferring a 'most improved pub' award on them sounds like a back handed compliment. Beers are from the glocal Wells/Youngs brewery and are just fine albeit unexciting (Proper Job was a welcome guest). The coffee machine had been turned off.
