Evening. A must visit to get the feel of a Carlisle State Management Scheme house, quite unchanged by time. However the single forlorn handpump was pumpclip-less due, the barmaid said, to being unable to move cask ale here. An 'alf of 'rthur Guinness's draught extra cold sufficed.

There is a banner in the back garden declaring that this pub is in the 2012 Good Beer Guide. It isnít. At least, itís not in my copy, although I do admit that a few pages have fallen out. And on todayís performance, it shouldnít be. It does however have a splendid, wood-panelled interior.

Lancaster - Blonde4.00AcceptableWell past its best, but still discernable as a decent pale beer with a sweetish caramel taste and some citrusy hop.

The pub is found in Carlisle, Cumbria, CA1 1QS.

Something of a Grade II listed time-warp pub in Botchergate, whose interior cannot have changed for many years. An ex-Carlisle State Management Scheme house. Wood panelling and framed black and white photographs. Small backyard. It is a few minutesí walk from Carlisle railway station, somehow surviving despite having a Wetherspoon pub to either side. A single handpump rarely if ever dispenses cask ale.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 1 beer and tried it.
