|My Golden Rule is "never drink before midday" !|
Occasionally broken ...
Never been to this pub, but it's on my list for the future

|There are only two known pubs in Britain called the Golden Rule. One is in Edinburgh and one is in Ambleside|
The question is - what is the Golden Rule?
for the religious - "do unto others as you would do unto yourself"
for the underdog - "he who has the gold rules"
for the sceptic - "the golden rule is that there is no golden rule"
for the landlord - "a load of hard work"
for the local and the visitor - "a very good pub!"

|All these reviews, and no one actually says what the Golden Rule is.|

|Back again, walked past all the high street pubs to get to the best bar none. This gem still features in BITEs top 20 pubs and yet is still not back in the Good Beer Guide. Madness, come on local CAMRA group, do your job. Full range of Robinsons beers and guests and as ALWAYS in tip top condition. |

|Have to agree with yesterday's review by TonyMitch - I have been an occasional visitor (several times a year) for about 40 years now and the Golden Rule has always been an excellent and very well run pub throughout that time. I called in for a pint this afternoon and at 17.00 on a November Monday there were 17 mostly local people in the main bar and more in the other rooms, with customers coming and going all the while, giving the place a warm and friendly atmosphere. My beer (Robinson's Blonde) was on top form. The pub was a GBG regular when it belonged to Hartley's and for many years thereafter and if I had my way it would be a fixture now; I would have no argument with a second GBG pub in this busy holiday town (the Lily or Queen's for example) but unless there is radical change the Rule will always be Number One for me. |
