The Riflemans Arms, Kendal

Good news! Anita has persuaded the owners to refurbish this pub with new carpet and upholstery, although keeping its traditional feel. Coupled with the fresh flowers she puts out and its delightful setting, this remains a fine Fellside pub.

The Station Bar, Glasgow

Sad to say my partner and I had two very poor pints in here on Saturday night. Mine, a pint of Abbot, was made up of three part glasses of pre and post barrel change and tasted, predictably, very stale. But if that's how they do it in these parts... We left most of both pints.
Today I've just had a fine pint of Abbot in the Riflemans in Kendal: so different, so fresh. That's proper attention to beer.

Hawkshead Brewery Beer Hall, Staveley

The brewery has now moved about 50 yards into a different building. The bar area is downstairs in the new building and has thus lost the fine view of the river of the previous set up although the view of the brewing equipment is now better. It also means that it no longer has the symbiotic relationship to Wilf�s cafe. But, instead, the brewery now sells its own food: an initially surprising tapas menu with small items (such as a slice of cold pork pie, some hot sausages, hummus, fish goujons, chips with cheese and onion gravy) for �2 or �3 and a few larger meals (such as macaroni cheese with truffle). Despite my misgivings, this worked quite well and the quality seemed high. Beer quality, as ever, was excellent.
