Now called the Fat Gadgie, apparently after the landlord. One of the better real ale pubs if a bit basic.

I had heard good things about this place and finally made it this evening to find it still shut with a legal notice in the window. Doesn't look like it will reopen now, at least under its present identity. I suppose Carlisle is more of a Wetherspoon and kids' bar kind of city, although I have always enjoyed my drinking experiences here and still remember the historic Carlisle State Brewery's products.

Sadly shut at the moment. Check out their Facebook page for latest news. Every time I've been in there its been excellent. Loads of choice from local and national breweries. Hopefully all will be sorted out in the end.

I was supposed to be meeting a friend here. But at first I walked into another local bar (Eaten By Monsters - not listed on here). Whilst that bar did have 3 ales, it wasn't the Moo Bar. I think I was fooled by what looked like a cow symbol on the front window! Eaten By Monsters was very busy and on two levels and I was tempted to stay with the 'quality' of the sights inside! But I pinched myself, exited and moved a few doors along to the much quieter Moo Bar. This has a huge array of handpulls. But you get the feeling that Carlisle is not quite ready for this kind of establishment. There were only around a dozen customers in on a Saturday night and not all of the handpulls had beers. It was much busier on the Sunday afternoon after the football. Ales on were Carlisle Brewing Company Oatmeal Stout, Flaxen, Carlisle Pale Ale & Spun Gold, Arbor The Devil Made Me Brew It & Boomtown Brown, Cross Bay Sunset, Allendale Pennine Pale & Golden Plover & Hawkshead Windermere Pale & Bitter. No real ciders are dispensed. But they do also have a good range of craft beers and also bottles. Ilkley The Mayan (a chilli stout) was very enjoyable from the keg. Other keg options included Saltaire Stateside IPA, Tirril Pennine Pilsner, Tickety Brew IPA & Hammertown Baron H. The bar staff were very knowledgeable. All in all, the best pub in Carlisle for ale drinkers.

A marvellous and welcome addition to the real ale scene in Carlisle. It is sited within 5 minutes walk of the station. There are 15+ ales on handpull, many from the local area and from micro breweries. Seating and tables are basic and I don't think food was available but there are plenty of places closeby offering that. It's a showcase for Cumbrian beers, has a great atmosphere and we think it's brilliant. Watch (out) for live music I guess on weekend nights.
