Evening - a grey, wet June day but busy and bustling in here as you expect from a ‘spoons. Surprisingly just one real ale on to start with- but a few more appeared after I had my meal. For those following my cycle journey, apologies as I have some more entries from Penrith to here that I will post as soon as I have the energy and good enough WiFi to do so. Just over 600 miles cycled from Dover so far.

12:15 Having just had a four hour journey by train from Edinburgh we came here straight from the station for lunch. Already busy. We had a Scottish Wetherpoons speciality Balmoral Chicken and very good it was too.

New build Wetherspoon's on the old railway pier opposite the station. Impressive interior but the standard furniture. The name comes from a nearby gulf famous for whirlpools.
