The Ship and Castle must have traded for a very short time, as information is scarce. It must have ceased trading as a pub by 1891 as there is no mention of the pub in the licensing records of that year.  

The building became the Willow Cafe and the site was redeveloped by the Co-op in the 1970’s. It is now the site of the New World Vietnamese Restaurant.
