Nice enough pub though the ale (the darker Lancaster one) wasn't up to much - maybe why it's been dropped from the GBG.

Quick stop at this road side inn as we had 30 minutes for our train.

This is a re-visit for me as I ticked it 2 years ago while on holiday in the lakes.

3 ales on, I had a pint of Healey's Old Welly , a blonde ale @ 4.0% which was very well kept and drinkable.

Busy inside with quite a few people eating in the front dining room, I saw a few pies & burgers go past and they smelt blinking lovely.

Another quick pint which was enjoyed sitting out the front enjoying the sunshine.

Conveniently located next to the station, this pub has a nice location next to a small river. The staff are friendly. Although it was too early for them to count (mis-calculating change). Luckily it was early enough in the day for me to retain my maths skills. The ale range on Saturday was Healeys The Welly, Unsworth's Yard Freedom & Sir Edgar Harrington's Last Wold & Marstons Pedigree New World. Cider was Rosie's Pig. Certainly a good village pub.

The layout of this pub was well-described by the last reviewer. I can only add that the front room to the left also has an open fire whereas the room on the right has framed album covers on the walls and a nice old range. Some of the outside seating overlooks the River Eea.

The pub is GBG 2015 listed and yesterday's offerings were Fell Brewery's YOLO (my choice and it was good), Robinsons Wizard, Moorhouses Pride of Pendle and (the very local) Unsworth's Yard Sir Edgar Harrington's Last Wolf.

This review is from early October 2014.

A short drive from Cartmel brings me here to the Engine Inn, in the tiny village of Cark and another 2014 GBG tick.

Small car park & a seating area to the front of the pub before you enter the low door into the narrow entry hall. A lounge with comfy leather chairs to your left and a dining area to your right before you come into the open plan bar and another seating / dining area to your right.

6 pumps serving 3 ales and 2 real ciders. 2 ales from Cartmel's Unsworth Yard Brewery and my choice which was Fell Breweries Pills @ 4.5%. Not a great beer to be honest, the beer was a tad vinegary.

Large open fireplace, various brass plates above it. On the window ledge are various trophies but I didn't check what they were for.

Decent pub, their dog Jasper is very friendly but the beer could of been better, maybe I chose the wrong one.

Also has accommodation
