About the Pub


Westmorland Branch Pub and Cider Pub of the Year within two years' of opening by a CAMRA enthusiast, this town local has seen a complete turnaround in trade. Four quality handpulls catering for all tastes are complemented by three craft keg lines for the more adventurous. Unusual real ciders and perries: annual festival in July. A wide-range of European bottled beers, also good whisky selection and special gins. Frequent community events: see social media. Great pop-up food most nights.

Special discount of 50p off a pint when a new CAMRA member signs up online in the pub.
