Tris C left this review about The Cumberland Arms

This is a mid-19th century pub occupying a corner plot, which was once a Whitbread’s house.
The interior is attractive and comfortable, ‘woody’ as mentioned. The interior is very traditional, but with filament bulbs in sconces and shallow fluted glass lamps hanging over the bar. One item of note, is the framed pictures of a sequence of 28 oversized pump clips from modern brewers such as Twickenham and St. Austell; even Sharp’s gets a look-in. Customers were mainly young, but there was an obnoxiously loud bunch of overseas drinkers to the rear, noisy to the point where I had to move seats; the barman didn’t look too pleased either, but didn’t intervene.
Ales amounted to two pumps, dispensing Tribute and one for Landlord at £2.80 a half and pretty good.
This isn’t a bad pub, considering the location and would make for a good double with the Albion.

A very woody pub, with bare floors, scrubbed tables and wood panelling throughout. A bit focussed on the dining side of things but otherwise an ok pub. There is a pile of board games for amusement and a side patio area for warm weather. Draught beers at time of visit were TTL, Tribute and 5 Points Pale in good nick.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Cumberland Arms

Popular, food-orientated operation but still very much a pub. Traditional - but well lit - interior, a nice relaxed atmosphere and plenty of bar staff (even at busy times). Not a lot of space around the bar, but there are plenty of tables beyond and a little more seating up a few steps at the back. Also has some benches along the side path which links to Marcus Garvey Park. Now has two banks of three handpumps, currently offering Tribute, Rev James and Betty Stogs (£4.30). Overall, the attractive exterior enlivens North End Road and always worth a quick stop if passing.
