The Castle Arms (The Glue Pot), Castletown

Quaint, cosy and full of charm from a bygone era. ‘The Glue Pot’ as it is far better known The Castle Armssits right on the harbour in Castletown and is literally a stone’s throw from Castle Rushen. The story goes that it was built in 1750 by a wealthy man for his daughter and since then the building has been many things before finally becoming the pub everyone knows and loves today.

The name ‘glue pot’ derives from when smugglers used to pop in for some light refreshment and find it difficult to leave and the name just stuck (no pun intended)! This pub is a hot spot for the World Tin Bath Races, the Southern 100 and the Manx rally. The Glue Pot boasts it’s the closest pub to any castle wall in the UK and the only pub to appear on a currently circulated bank note.
