About the Pub

The oldest recorded pub in Carlisle (1747). There is a copy of a 15th century map of the area on display in the pub which suggests there was a building on the site at that time. The map shows that it sat on land owned by a monastery (Blackfriars) Only 10 minutes from both rail and bus stations the Sportsman can be found tucked away from the main pedestrian thoroughfare. Look behind House of Fraser and alongside M&S Food Hall. One large room features in this pub. Meals are served 1130-7 Monday-Saturday and 12-5 Sunday. A quiz is held every Monday evening.The Sportsman was a State Management pub - a plaque above the bar states it was part of the scheme between August 1916 and May 1973.NOTE MAY CLOSE EARLIER MON-THU
