Following a refurbishment and rebranding, the new Rats Castle pub will focus on a variety of Televised Sports. There are 7 HD TV screens around the pub, a projector & screen, 2 Pool Tables, Casino Games machine and Jukebox. Serving a wide selection of premium beers, pizzas, burgers and delicious desserts.

The Manager  The Rats Castle

The Rats Castle pub is known and loved for it’s friendly and fun atmosphere.

The pub has something for everyone such as; sports on our TV’s, games machine, Jukebox and pool tables. Recently, due to popular demand, we added an additional pool table! Plus, we have quieter spaces to sit and catch up with friends. Additionally, there are 2 outdoor spaces. A good size beer garden out the back and covered front seating also.

We’re constantly trying to improve areas of the pub to keep it fresh and modern. Likely we’ll be sharing an update on our beer garden soon. It is currently being refurbished, we’re so excited to have this ready for summer ’24.

Also we’re the closest pub to G Live Theatre, just a 2 minute walk away makes us the perfect spot for your pre or post show drinks/food! Offering a special discount to all G Live customers, 10% off everything!


The pub can hold all of your event requirements. We have held some fantastic events over the last few years such as; Kane FM DJ nights, birthday parties, BBQ’s, Quiz nights, Wedding receptions, baby shower’s and other private hires! So get in contact with us to discuss options for your next event.
