The Old Friends Inn in Ulverston

No longer a Robinson's pub, though the pub name and the words Free House look like the old Hartley's Brewery style. It's a brew house with an on-site brewery of the same name. There were four beers on, two from out back and two from Keswick brewery (a long way from home). Maybe another time. I went for the New Acquaintance, which was a little hazy but a pleasant enough drink. Worth a visit on days when we don't have to wait until 4pm for the pub to open (not Mon/Tue/Wed), though locals were gathering while I was here, so it's obviously popular.

The Five Bells in N2
Dating back to 1751, this was surely once a coaching inn, though rebuilt in a modest brewers’ Tudor style, probably in the 1920s and since 2011, one of Greene King’s irresistible ‘Flaming Grill’ joints (ironic, given the close proximity to Finchley Crematorium), with two luverly signs at the entrance and exit to the substantial car park – with EV chargers – showing photos of the greasy fayre dished up within.
You can get an idea of the interior from my photo, but aside from the original bar counter, it’s a typical modernised by-the-numbers GK outlet: zoned colour schemes, zoned furniture with some patterned wallpaper, laminate or carpeted floor, games machines, décor in the form of pictures of the area from yesteryear along with meal deals and TVs showing silent, unwatched tennis to a virtually empty venue at the time of my Friday 9.50pm arrival, the few customers essentially amounting to gobby sozzled ladz on the lagerz, apart from a crying baby in the car park.
There were GK IPA and Abbott pumps along with a Beavertown fount, but the barman told me ‘We don’t really use those anymore’, so it was a pint of Moretti at a shocking £6.55.
This is a feeble pub; the Windsor Castle kicks ten bells out of this place.

[QUOTE=Mobyduck;135047]Yes, agree but will pass on the hair covered in slime bit.[/QUOTE] :) I think the place had a bit of a makeover some years ago which may have cured the damp problems but I don't know if it's still a den where business types take their secretaries for secret assignations.
