The Bread and Bitter was officially opened by Barrie Judge on December 5th 2007. Back in 1991, Mr Judge shut his bakery on the site and the premises had lain idle since. Now completely rebuilt as a pub, Castle Rock has restored the original bread ovens which have ‘mother’s’ pride of place in the dining room.

Eleven real ales are permanently on draught alongside a range of continental and UK favourites including Titanic Stout, Bitburger and Erdinger Weiss. One area of the pub is dedicated to a “brewers’ graveyard” of artefacts from closed breweries including some sadly missed friends. A feature of the new pub is its stained glass.

Children are welcome at the Bread and Bitter providing they are well behaved and supervised at all times. They are allowed in the Garden Room (Conservatory), Ovens Room (Dining Area) or Outside until 9.00pm Only!

A baby changing facility is located in the Ladies toilets and high-chairs can be found in the garden room, please clean them after use.

We are happy to facilitate the dietary requirements of your child and reduce portions sizes for children.

Manager: John Francis

Parking is an eternal problem at the
Bread and Bitter. We have very limited space
in our shared car-park & immediately outside
the building. There is plenty of on-street
parking and car parks within a few minutes walk but please do not park illegally. Unfortunately, due to the selfishness of a few individuals, we have had unnecessary confrontations with our long-suffering neighbours. Please park sensibly and with due care & consideration. Do not obstruct driveways or the entrance to our car-park!
Better still, leave the car at home and catch bus (NCT 44,45,25 or 199), Taxi or walk!.
