The Elephant & Castle is one of those "hidden gems" of a pub. Paint in your mind's eye a traditional village pub and you're nearly there! A warm a friendly welcome is assured and for those who love great ales and great home-cooked food you will love the "Home of the Herd"!

A "proper" village pub popular with locals and those from a little further afield. Diners with special dietary requirements can be more than catered for.

The pub is very "dog friendly" and customers with dogs can expect a warm welcome.

With cosy inside spaces, outside decking area and beer garden, coupled with our friendly staff and great service customers, we are pleased that, once customers find us, they return ever frequently and become part of our "herd".

Hopefully we will see you soon and you can join them too!

At The Elephant and Castle we can cater for private functions for up to 30 seated guests. Anything from walking groups, teams and clubs, baby showers, training sessions, funerals, birthday celebrations to intimate wedding gatherings can all be catered for.

We can offer a variety of catering options dependent on your budget and requirements. If you need any further information with regards to holding a private event with us please give us a call or contact us via e-mail. Better still, why not pop in for a chat to discuss your bespoke requirements

Dog Friendly

The Elephant & Castle Thurlaston is our home too and so is very dog friendly (for well behaved dogs like us). Four legged friends are made just as welcome with those with two!

We get spoiled because there is a new doggy menu of treats (on the bar) and we have our own special "Doggie Bar" at the rear and courtyard too. Why not bring your owner in to meet us. We are sure that they will enjoy the Elephant and Castle too!
