WHAT’S BREWING?

Cumbria is home to around forty independent breweries so you’re never going to be more than a stone’s throw from a decent pint of locally brewed real ale.

We made a decision to stick with our local ethos and choose our beers from within a twenty mile radius of the pub. Luckily for us (and you) this means some of the very best breweries – not just in the county, but in the country.

Coniston Brewing, Stringers, Ulverston Brewing, Cumbrian Legendary Ales, Barngates, Hawkshead and Tarn Hows breweries. This list includes CAMRA regional and national winners, as well as acclaimed Champion Beer of Britain recipients.

Our real ale selection is a regularly changing one but whenever you call in you’ll always be in good company.

All our wines are sourced and supplied by renowned wine merchants Frank Stainton of Kendal, and we’re also proud to serve award-winning teas and coffees from Farrers, the independent blenders and roasters also from Kendal.
