Seasonal food in unspoilt surroundings

The Castle in Castleton is a country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

A little Pub history

Situated in Castleton for hundreds of years, the Castle is steeped in spooky local legends. These tales tell of no less than four spirits haunting the grounds of The Castle, including a jilted bride. An integral part of the local community, we were also a stop-off point for the Wellington Express coach, which travelled between Manchester and Sheffield in the 1800's.

Charming local accommodation

Our 15 bedroom Innkeeper's Lodge continues The Castle's tradition of welcoming travellers. It's our local charm that attracts ramblers and nature enthusiasts, as well as diners and drinkers from Castleton and nearby Thornhill, Slackhall and Bradwell. We also welcome business and leisure travellers to enjoy some of the best bedrooms and accommodation in Castleton.

Make a day of it

A jewel set in the rolling hills of the Peak District; The Castle is a pub with rooms, making it a terrific year round base from which to explore surroundings of stunning natural beauty.
