Drink at the Castle, Furnival Street

Believed to have been established as early as 1541, the Castle is on the corner of Furnival Street and Norwich Street, in the City. As with so many London pubs, however, the modern pub dates from much later, around 1901.

Your author visited last week, and despite the busy pavement outside, it wasn't hard to find a seat inside to sample one of up to eight real ales, sourced from breweries around the UK and displayed on a blackboard next to the bar. Alongside that, it's very much your usual mix of braying city-boys and Australian barmaids, it would seem.

It is a free house, and that is always a bonus in your author's view as it gives the owners a bit more flexibility in what they do with it. Now, according to fancyapint, it is in the hands of the people run The Bell on Cannon Street and the Wheatsheaf in Borough Market.
