on first approach it looks like an old historic pub and probably is, but inside it’s quite uninspiring with sparse decor and only limited character. But as a pub I quite liked it - friendly staff and local ales on the bar, including a decent Carlisle Porter. Good jukebox and a typical unpretentious town centre pub atmosphere. For Carlisle, it’s good.

Bar hangers are alive and well in Carlisle. Thought the plague had put pay to them.

As a result, its very hard for the uninitiated to get a glimpse of what is on offer.

What was found was a good pint of Esthwaite Bitter. Good Beer Guide 2021.

The pub is a bit identikit old pub. Some bench seating, some high tables/stools. A small, very plain ourside courtyard.

Clean and functional. Won't stay in the memory for long.

Slick restaurant style or perhaps over zealous, plague management; table service only and you can’t see the pump clips. The “conductor” rattled out the beer choice a bit quick so other than a sub 4% bitter I haven’t a clue what I drank. I was assured, Monty Python cheese shop style, it was very popular in these parts. Well kept but not a beer I’d make efforts to find again. The interior you ask? Well an old place, the outside promises much, internally it’s sanitised oldness , carpet on the upper level, tidied up woodwork, the odd plastic beam or two. Old photo decor, there’s a juke box but no screens or machines I could see. GBG listed but then there’s a lack of candidates in Carlisle.
