Filled up rapidly for Sunday lunch. Popular with drinkers and diners.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Jennings - Cumberland Ale4.00ExcellentI've never really thought much about this beer, but in fact it's pretty good:a barley coloured "northcountry" best,prominant hops through the sparkler,a malty finish.

Cosy front bars, with rear laid up for dining. Beer range a little less adventurous now, but a welcome relief from the A1
