Will Larter left this review about The Dog Beck (JD Wetherspoon)

The world's biggest beer festival was taking place here according to the banner outside, but you wouldn't know it from looking at the bar, where the usual Trio of Doom was accompanied by GK Old Nutty Hen and two guest ales from the local Keswick brewery. I went for one of the Keswick brews, but when I asked the lass behind the bar for the beer she asked me to pay for it before she went to the pump to pour it. This is the second time that this has happened to me (the other was in Leominster) and someone told me that it was because some disreputable toe-rags have started asking for a beer then sinking it quickly and doing a runner. Personally? - of course I'm taking it personally. If it happens again I shall boycott all Wetherspoons.

Apparently this old listed building was last a night club but prior to that was the local clinic.
The whole place seems to be an open plan room on different levels and there is a roof patio upstairs.
There are twelve hand pumps on the bar which had one available soon, the two GK beers, Carlisle Bell & two festival ales doubled up and Carlisle Spun Gold. I went for the Spun Gold (£2.15) which was in good enough nick.
I thought this was a reasonable Spoons but let down by the limited beer choice.

Slow service. 10 pulls - usually about 5 or 6 in action. Weekends full of screeching youngsters. Beer condition now sorted. Excellent prices.
