Other pubs in Northern Lakes, Keswick and Western Lakes

‘Well run, extremely well liked and surrounded by stunning walks,’ said the Good Pub Guide 2021 of this 16th century inn, a much loved pub in a glorious location, a few miles from the Georgian town of Cockermouth. The Kirkstile also has links to a Cumbrian brewery. 

Britain’s ‘first co-operatively owned pub’, one that holds the ‘Biggest Liar in the World’ competition, pubs in beautiful locations and one associated with the earliest days of climbing in the Lake District. That’s a few of the pubs in an area which takes in Keswick, Cockermouth, the Northern Fells and some well known lakes.
