Are you a fastidious couple or an individual operator looking for a new challenge? Are you passionate about serving high-quality drinks and food? If so, the Castle Inn could be the business for you.

The ideal operator will have the creative vision and ability to deliver the optimum and consistent guest experience. Food is a big part of our offer. Although not complex, it does require absolute attention to detail and high standards at all times. You will have a proven track record of serving delicious food with the ability to motivate and manage an efficient kitchen team.

 Meeting statutory requirements will be second nature to you, and previous experience of achieving excellent results and feedback on compliance will be evident.

The Castle is an established pub that we are investing in to take it to another level. You will be successful because you seek new opportunities to evolve. You will be motivated to innovate, creating new angles to evoke interest using social media channels. You will make memories in your pub that guests will share on social, also receiving excellent reviews for your service.

The pub

This fantastic pub is ideally located on the outskirts of Congleton and around a mile’s drive to Biddulph. Our investment will ensure the pub is a standout venue to dine and drink with family and friends. Guests will love the stunning, new outdoor area planned with views of the woodland and neighbouring golf course.

The rear garden can seat over 100 guests for dining and drinking, in addition to the 80 internal covers, accessible through a new doorway in the central aspect. This area will serve as a great first view looking down on the tiered garden area, where guests will venture and select their favourite spot to absorb the picturesque surrounds.

The pub has two rooms served by sections of the same bar. The entrance provides different options for each side of the pub allowing designation for diners or drinkers. Restrooms reside on the rear corridor, and the kitchen and cellar are all at floor level. You will have private accommodation on the premises to ensure you are a quintessential part of your  local community.

The development

Our investment will upgrade the building whilst keeping the intrinsic traditional look and feel. The garden will become a beacon for the pub’s offering, enticing guests all year round with its cover, lighting and heating designed for all-season comfort. The bar servery will gain a better working layout and added display space. Take advantage of the optimum time to be at the helm!
