My first visit here, the pub is covered in scaffolding and is undergoing a major refit. I am assured that the bar area, which is listed on Camra's inventory of pubs with regional historic interest will remain untouched, but the restaurant area will be refurbished and new carpets laid. Jennings insignia on the exterior will be removed. I paid two visits here today and had good friendly service by knowledgeable staff on each occasion.

Just time for a quick late-afternoon pint in here after being dropped at the station and before my train home. Seemed like a very pleasant pub.

The pub is found in Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 7JE.

Comfortable pub in Castlegate and close to the railway station and a short uphill walk from the town centre. The 'Aggi' (as it is known locally) has a friendly atmosphere and provides a good range of home cooked meals. The pub is just a claymore's throw from the ruins of Penrith Castle which are testimony to the turbulent history of the border counties and are worth a visit. Note the impressive rising shutters at the ornate wooden and glass bar counter area. Local CAMRA branch Pub of the Year for 2013. En-suite accommodation. 6 handpumps.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 10 different beers and tried 3 of them.
