Will Larter left this review about The King George IV Inn

I called in here as part of a mini-pub-crawl-by-bike (starting with Ritsons at Wadale Head, then Bower House, here, Woolpack, here again) as an interlude in my circuit of Cumbria this summer. The second visit was a bit of an accident: on first entering the pub I chose a beer from the hand pumps on the bar, not realising that there were others listed on a blackboard and available around the corner in the other part of the bar. Having made my selection from Yates Golden Ale, Coniston Bluebird, Moorhouses Pendle Witches Brew and Coniston Asrai, I then had a choice on my return from Great Heck Voodoo Mild, Healeys "The Welly" Stout and Brown Cow Thriller in Vanilla Porter. Only the thought of cycling back over the hill to Santon Bridge deterred me from drinking all three.

There's a rough-and-ready casualness about this pub that I like, the sort of pub where you can feel instantly at home. All beers are priced at £3.10 a pint, which would be another reason to keep on coming back.
