The Castle is a great local pub, conveniently located near Newbury’s main roads and town centre, in the picturesque village of Donnington very close to the historic Donnington Castle.
Food is cooked on the premises using fresh ingredients and local suppliers where possible.
They have a lively schedule of events, quizzes, live music and promotions. Please click here to sign up to their newsletter mailing list.

Dogs are welcome in designated parts of the pub.
Independently owned by Laurent Lebeau and partners – the team behind The Red House at Marsh Benham – the pub is proud of its fresh and hearty menu.
The Castle opens from 7:30am Friday to Sunday, and from 11:00am Tuesday – Thursday. On Sundays breakfast and brunch are served alongside a choice of roasts, Castle burgers and platters followed by homemade desserts.
The children’s menu offers a main course and a scoop of ice cream for just £5. Young guests also get a free activity pack.
“We booked on the day for a Sunday Lunch and after having a drink wanted to possibly delay our table as we were enjoying the ambience – this was dealt with without problem by Holly and the team. The lunch was excellent and I can recommend that pate, it really was lovely. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The wine list is fantastic too and keenly priced. Overall a very good time had and will certainly be back again.” Chris H
Seven of us had a great lunch here. The roast beef and nut roast were both lovely and good value for money. Also the restaurant is cosy with a great atmosphere. Thanks very much!” L Manson
