With various events in our pubs, plus a scarily delcious porter brewed by Castle Rock, celebrate Hallowe'en with us! Read on to find out what your Castle Rock local is up to this year...

We know it’s considered a very ‘Americanised’ tradition these days but at Castle Rock we use any excuse to have a party, hang up our high vis dungarees/office attire/staff wear and hit the dance floor. Okay, okay, we don’t often hit the dance floor, we’re pub lovers of course, but we like to have a good time. That’s why this year we are throwing ourselves into all things Halloween.

Our pubs are getting in the spooky spirit, and considering Halloween falls on a Friday this year, there’s no reason to not come down and celebrate with Castle Rock. Be warned, there could be fancy dress, eerie music, creepy quizzes, ghoulish treats and chilling cocktails in abundance. Find out what your Castle Rock local is up to this year.
