The Station in Kendal

500 metres up the hill on a narrow footway beside a busy road links the station and The Station. Anyway, the original building has been extended (perhaps more than once) to provide a dining room as well as a two-part bar. Outdoor seating is provided to one side on benches beside the car park and also in a beer garden further back where a sizeable children's play area can also be found. With two of the four handpumps in use, the local Bowness Bay Lakeland Blonde (£3.75) was oddly supplemented by Otter Bitter from the other end of the country.

Another first for an E3 pub, into this former Truman's house dating from 1935. At first glance it would be easy to assume that it was built by their inhouse architect, A. E. Sewell in the so-called 'improved' style, but this would be a basic schoolboy error, as it was in fact designed by Eedle & Myers, architects of the legendary Angel, which gives its name to a part of Islington and a square on the UK Monopoly board.
I won't go into any real detail about the place as it's well documented below and on CAMRA's Pub Heritage website, suffice to say that unsurprisingly nothing has changed and the couple who have run it since the 1970s are presumably still here.
Arriving with around 40 minutes to go before the 'new normal' last orders and what a shock compared to The Lord Tredegar over the road, not because of the obvious differences in architectural style but because of the customers: the Lord Tredegar was pretty much as full as the law allows with diners aplenty. Here, just one old boy who has probably been a regular all his life, chatting away to the staff behind the bar.
Entry required very little in the way of track and trace, just a notebook for names and numbers and a bottle of denatured alcohol to be splashed sloppily onto the hands without any little pump. As mentioned, the lighting in here is rather different (or traditional?) as there's little lighting beyond a deathly orange glow. Music flowed gently but was contemporary where one would have expected Glenn Miller or The Andrews Sisters wafting over the windup gramophone. The floor is carpeted but I doubt it is original though. The lavs were ok, but what was a little alarming is that there's no gent's cubicle.
There was one solitary ale, Mighty Oak's Maldon Gold which was very good but at an absolutely excruciating £5.00, which is more than a substantially stronger pint at the Tredegar with its far more affluent client base. It also had to be paid for in cash which I had brought along specially, having been forewarned, though it didn't go into the cash register of yesteryear.
I'm glad I saw this place in all its original glory, but I doubt the interior will survive in its current state once the current landlord/lady move on, so best see it while you have the chance.

Austin, Texas’ slogan is both a testament to the city’s offbeat character and a call-to-action. “Keep Austin Weird” was coined some 20 years ago, created in support of the city’s many independent businesses. But some grumble that Austin has already lost some of its “weird” in the ensuing decades, due ....

If I go to a gastropub which sells minimalist pretentious stuff or to a pub which doesn't do food, but I have a pickled egg for starters, scotch egg for mains and a packet of salt and vinegar for pud, which is the more 'substantial'? And what about pubs where you can BYO food?
