It is with sadness that we mark the death of Spyke Golding, a very close friend of us all at Castle Rock and Tynemill. One day, the story will be told of how over 35 years ago he played an important part in the creation of our first pub in Newark. We remember too his commitment to real ale and the English pub in the days when fizzy keg was darkening the horizon. We recall his humour, his knowledge and compassion.
But most of all, we honour a great bloke.
