The Castle Green pub is being sold, landlord says
THE Castle Green pub in Taunton is in the process of being sold.
The iconic pub, in the heart of the £3million Castle Green development, will be sold to another pub company.
Carlos Alfaro, who has been landlord for four years, said he has accepted an offer but didn’t want to name the firm taking over until everything is finalised.
He said: “It is part of a new challenge for me and also because of the uncertainty of business on Castle Green.
“It does not fill you with great joy when you see wagon after wagon digging the place up.
“It is the right time of year to have a refurb and the pub needs some TLC and investment and they [the buyers] want to do it.”
