The Castle Inn (Google)

It is hoped Newport’s historic The Castle Inn will not have to close temporarily when its current landlords leave.

Posting on social media, Donna and Cheryl have told customers that they have decided not to renew their lease and will pull their last pints on 11 November.

New landlords are expected and it is hoped they will be able to start in the High Street pub as the pair finish.

They said,

“We both have other businesses that we feel need our attention at the moment & we both have young children who seem to have a better social life than us and it appears they need us to be permanent chauffeurs at the moment!!!!!!

“We appreciate that bands have been asking about bookings for next year and we are giving out your details to the new owners shortly and they will be contacting you themselves. Any bands booked in for the remainder of the year will be honoured!

“We want to thank all our customers, bands, family & friends for all your custom & support over the last 4 years! We’ve loved every minute of it!”
