Castle, W3 6UL

  • 140 Victoria Road, W3 6UL

The Castle was a Fuller's pub in North Acton. It has now closed. According to the Aug/Sep 2021 London Drinker, hoardings went up around it in January 2021 and Fuller's have sold it to a property development company who intend to demolish it.

The information below is retained for historical purposes.

Pleasant Fuller's pub in North Acton opposite the station.

Inside there's plenty of space, comprising several distinct areas and a large wooden bar in the centre. On separate weekend visits a couple of years apart, both sides were showing sports, generally football and rugby (there are two large plasma screens on either side of the bar), while a separate wood-panelled room to the rear of the pub was free of TVs (and also largely empty).

There's a large beer garden area, a great deal of which is covered by a canopy.

The pub serves well-kept pints of Fuller's beer. Despite having nine handpulls, most have London Pride (£2.85/pint in Jan 2009), with a few also offering ESB. They also have Honeydew, Leffe and Staropramen on draught, among the other usual suspects.

Food is served noon-9:30pm on Mondays to Saturdays and noon-8pm on Sundays. The menu sticks to the usuals, a perfectly decent selection. Nachos for two were £7.50 or so, and nicely presented, with neatly placed piles of salsa, sour cream and guacamole on top photo. On a March 2011 visit, fish and chips (£8) were also nicely-presented, with a little mound of mushy peas aside a lattice-like construction of thick chunky chips (satisfying and crispy).

Accessibility: Step-free access, and a separate accessible toilet.
