Located on the beautiful lower Keppel Street part of Bathurst, the pub has an idyllic classic setting. There's no new chic, modern architecture to attract a different type of pub goer.
But, it doesn't deter families either!
With a new head chef, the pub has recently improved its grub beyond anything. While it still may look like your typical dank pub attracting only the bar flies and alcoholics, all walks of life enjoy it.
Meals are very competitive with typical pub prices. The beers on tap are very much what you'd expect, but the Elephant and Castle has a secret previously only known by locals.
The beer of the week varies constantly until it is sold out, and consistently features quality foreign beers such as Carlsberg, Corona, Lowenbrau as well as craft domestic beers like Little Creatures, James Squire, and Coopers among others.
The best part of the beer of the week deal is that it won't break your bank, with a bottle costing only $3.50.
It's a far cry from paying almost $10 for a bottle at the Greenwood in North Sydney.
The Elephant and Castle has been a fixture in Bathurstian culture, attracting students and locals alike. It brings pub culture back to its roots and cannot be recommended highly enough.
