Your Guide 2 the Lake District Recommended Pubs, Bars & Inns:
Many of the Lake District Pubs and Inns have a great deal of history attached, with the term “Inn” being associated with accommodation. Some modern-day pubs were former "Coaching Inns," situated on the original routes used by horse and carriage. The Inns would accommodate the travellers and the horses would stay in an adjoining barn.
Lots of these Pubs & Inns have kept the open log fires, stone floors and exposed oak beams, giving them a real cosy atmosphere on dark winters' nights. In summer time, beer gardens are proving to be very popular and when you get a nice day, is there anywhere better to enjoy a beer; than looking at the Lake District scenery? A growing number offer mainly locally sourced food and real ales brewed here in the Lake District.
There are several locally brewed beers that are served in many Lake District Pubs, Bars & Inns with Hawskhead and Coniston breweries being amongst the most well known. There is also an increase of local "Micro Breweries" where beer is produced on the same site as the pub or inn and may only be sold at select outlets. The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is very strong in the Lake District and Cumbria! Beer festivals are popular in various Lake District Pubs & Inns, visit our events pages for information on the next beer festival to be held locally
