The Railway Hotel, West Wickham

This is a busy pub, serving a large area of west wickham. However the bar staff leave a lot to be desired. We normally go here most Friday early evenings. This last few weeks we have had staff who cough and sneeze into their hands and then serve customers without washing their hands,
There is a large container under the bar for empty bottles, and one member of staff in particular likes to throw the bottles in there. Now Nick Lowe might like empty beer bottles crashing into a container, but it's not very nice when you are trying to have a chat.
Then this week, we ordered a few pints of Peroni, and when asked to top one of them up to the pint mark, this was met by a look and attitude as if we has asked something outrageous. At over £4 a pint, I want a full pint. Without sniggering from staff.
They have just lost our custom. The Jolly Woodman in Beckenham is a bit of a trek, but it's a proper pub, and that's where we will be on Fridays from now on.

Tweedies Bar at Dale Lodge Hotel, Grasmere

Good range of beers to be had in this pub. The food, while very good, is a bit over the top for a pub. 17 quid buys a bit of sea bass on a bed of minted peas with potatoes and pancetta.
After a long walk up the hills a big plate of cod and chips for a tenner would have been ideal.
Not mentioned on this website is the Lamb Inn, just around the corner. While it doesn't have the range of beers Tweedies have (in fact one night it didn't have ANY beers on), the food is less fussy, still very good and a lot cheaper.
So perhaps an ideal evening is to have few beer in this bar followed by a meal in the Lamb.

The Royal Oak Inn, Cartmel

Lovely, friendly pub. Just had a good walk in the local area and as it was just past mid day and starting to rain, it was only polite to pop into a pub.
Served an excellent pint of beer, roaring fire was just being lit (it was May after all) and sat down in cosy chairs to enjoy the beer. Within 10 minutes a fair few people came in from the rain and were ordering food.
Only stayed for a pint, but looked like a nice pub.
