Quite liked this pub, grand architecture reflecting its past as a bank and the beer was good.

Nothing really special - so we sauntered over to the station where the buffet on platform 4 now does decent ales and is a much better bet for a pre- train pint.

After 7 fairly relaxing pubs, I hit the centre of Carlisle's late night drinking circuit with the Griffin on the edge of it, just outside the railway station. It's quite a grand building inside and out. There is plenty of seating space both upstairs and downstairs. I believe the upstairs room had its own bar too. But I was getting a little merry by now. I do remember that most tables were littered with glasses, either indicating it had been a very busy evening, or they simply didn't have enough staff. I'll opt for the former reason, as another friend had described the action earlier in the evening as 'cabaret'. Whilst this is a Greene King establishment, it's not limited to just their own beers. Hardy & Hansons Rocked Out, Robinsons Trooper, Greene King IPA & Copper Dragon Golden Pippin were the ales. The Rocked Out was ok, but nothing special. A CAMRA discount was offered. I'd imagine the Griffin would make for a pleasant drink during the day. But it was just a bit too lively to enjoy during my visit.

A large pub with a couple of cask ales, convenient for the station. Nothing special.

In here last Friday afternoon and not much to add to the last post.
Had an OK pint of Robinsons Dizzy Blond for £2.69.
Watched some of the test match Cricket on a giant screen.
