Will Larter left this review about 301 Miles from London

The magnificent room in which this new pub has been created was concealed behind office partitions and false ceilings before the present owners got to work on it. I must say they've done a brilliant job, the only slight worry being that it seems a little big for the custom they are likely to get. The hours are 8am to 9pm (closing an hour earlier Monday to Wednesday, 90 minutes earlier Sunday) which is sufficiently unusual to suggest they've done a bit of research and it's absolutely dead around here in the evenings.

Someone I took to be one of the owners was behind the bar and was happy to chat about the place and about exactly how far it is from here to London (it appears to be slightly further by train if the signs at Settle station are accurate). Anyway, all pedantry aside, this was a very nice bar with some excellently kept beers and I ended up having three halves when I usually have just the one when I'm cycling - to be fair, I was only walking my bike to the train. There's a Camra discount of 10% but on Mondays all beers are reduced to £2.50 a pint and the discount is not applicable.

Situated on platform 4 on Carlisle railway station this new bar has in a previous life been a station buffet and more recently a waiting room and is classed as a sympathetic recreation of a period Victorian luncheon bar.On entry the bar faces you and you cannot fail to notice the high arched ceiling and large fireplace to the left.
Very quiet on my 1pm Wednesday lunchtime visit possibly due to the fact that it could easily be missed because of the enormous amount of scaffolding that has now been here for 18 months.On the bar(A restored Victorian one imported from Ireland)were the usual suspects plus 7 cask pumps although only functioning.
