See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A small hotel situated just off the busy A49 trunk road. The partly panelled lounge is quite large and comfortably furnished with easy chairs. The room to the right of the front door is principally the restaurant area, having been incorporated more into the pub by the removal of a partition wall. The public bar has its own entrance, and is equipped with a darts board, pool table, large TV, a couple of fruit machines and a fire. The Castle referred to in the hotel's former name is English Heritage's Stokesay Castle which is nearby. This is said to be "quite simply the finest and best preserved fortified medieval manor house in England". The Stokesay appeared in the second Good Beer Guide in 1975, and stayed in for the next 11 editions. The first entry was brief and said it was "a warm, clean and friendly local with unusual beer engines". The beer was Davenports Mild and Bitter.
