Parts of The Castle Inn date back to the 10th century and the pub, which is owned by the church opposite, performed many functions within the village over the years. The Inn was first known as 'The Church House' and it was the only place in Hurst where bread was baked. The original oven can still be seen in the 'Snug Bar', and there is also a panel in the main dining room showing the 'wattle and daub' construction of the internal walls.

Today The Castle Inn, unencumbered by any brewery tie, serves ales from around the country, but will always have a local brew on tap.

So whether it's a pint in the garden on a sunny afternoon, or a meal on a special occasion, pop into The Castle at Hurst, where you will always find a warm welcome!
