Behind the long tile-hung frontage (with central brick bay), lies a timber-framed building perhaps dating from the early seventeenth century. The Castle has an utterly traditional small public bar with a red and black quarry-tiled floor, full-height matchboard-panelled walls, an old brick fireplace and some simple bench seating. The counter could date from interwar times: the routine bar-back shelves are hard to date. The saloon bar accessed from the left-hand side of the building is in three distinct parts. The centre section contains a bar counter and may date from interwar times. To the left is a small seating are including some old benches and to the right down a couple of steps is a tiny alcove called 'the Confessional' with more basic seating. There is a small dining room to the right of the public bar and another at the rear.
