Our train to Maryport was cancelled, giving us an unexpected opportunity to break down a bit more time somewhere close to Carlisle railway station. Standard Wetherspoon place, busy in the early afternoon on a Friday. Good selection of mostly local brews.

Busy early evening. Quick & friendly service. 40p per pint discount for CAMRA Card carriers. Exceptional beer selection tonight.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Hawkshead - Lakeland Gold4.40ExcellentMid-gold bitter with long lasting head. Fruit and hops well balanced with long satisfying finish.
Bitter End - Lakeland IPA5.50PoorComing to the end of the cask flavour dominated by toffee malts. Sweet, cloying with no hops to balance it.
