Our story

The idea was simple

In 1977, a flare-wearing entrepreneur opened The Old King’s Arms in Newark. The idea was a simple one: create a friendly, welcoming pub and serve high quality beer. This humble dream turned out to be quite the success story. The Castle Rock family grew and grew, and in 1997 we started brewing our own beer.

Today, we continue to be a proud independent brewery and pub company in the heart of Nottingham.

Our mission will always be to brew great beer, run great pubs, and make connections with our customers that last a lifetime.

What we offer

About our pubs

Immense beer choice

Immense beer choice

Castle Rock managers have the freedom to create their own drinks menus. This means our pubs pour a huge selection of local, regional, national and international beer, with a focus on independent breweries, and no two pub offerings are the same. Plus, we are known for serving the best-kept cask beer in Nottingham.
