Opened 3 months ago in the premises which were the Moo Bar.
There were 5 handpulled beers on when I went in today. Also quite a few craft beers.
Had half of Fallen Chew Chew (a milk stout) which was pretty superb.
There were only two people in the place. I hope this reincarnation of the pub is a success,

Will Larter left this review about Moo Bar

I was in Carlisle for a Luton Town game and met up with a few fellow Hatters in the Moo Bar. There were 18 hand pumps, by my count, of which half had beers on. After I had ordered a beer and taken it back there were still eight more to choose from. I shocked my friends by going for the Wells Bombardier - being from Bedfordshire, they tend to turn their noses up at this one, but it was in good condition. There were also 16 keg taps on the wall behind the bar.

Being a bare-boards shop conversion, it tends to become pretty noisy when more than a dozen people are talking, and I'm not sure the available space can contain enough drinkers to keep that many real ales ticking over.

The news on 21st July that the pub had been repossessed by the landlord was a shock. The story goes that the winter floods dented the overall trading figures to the extent that the bar owner was falling behind on the rent. See however http://hardknott.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/moo-bar-public-information-post.html for more information about this bar's owner and his business practices.
