Profile information

Plain food preferred. Real ale a must. Also very fond of a GOOD glass of wine, something most pubs seem not to understand. Live music also enjoyed.

Dislikes include sportsbars and any mechanical music or TV. Now live in Lakes, but often down south.

Remember, support your boozers. No one but a masochist would run a pub nowadays, they need your help and sympathy.

Three Shires Inn, Little Langdale

Visited this pub on a warm and sunny September day after driving up Lansdale. Stopped for lunch and sat outside as did most people, many of them on walking expeditions in Langdale. The pub is just as previously described and not overly characterful, but comfortable nevertheless. They provide B&B and a holiday cottage. The beer was in excellent condition and a good selection of the main Cumbrian brews at about average prices for the area. Food, I had a snack, which was efficiently provided at a fair price and very well cooked with generous helpings. The terrace, to the side of the pub, has good views over the fells and is sufficiently set back from the quiet road to be a pleasant place to eat. The bar would be comfortable in colder weather and roomy. There is parking for about 8 cars out front.
All in all a very worthwhile place for a stop if not one of the most memorable places in Cumbria.

The Newfield Inn, Seathwaite

Had a couple of excellent weekday pints in this atmospheric little boozer before. Went there the other night on a Saturday for some nosebag and to report intelligence. Couldn't get in, completely full including the garden. Band just setting up to play, lots of folk with food. I had to go to a former haunt in Broughton to get some dinner. This means it not only does good micro ale, but is popular for food and atmos. I will get back and report further just as soon as possible. In the meantime, looks like a very promising venue. Well worth a punt and in an unspoilt and not overvisited part of the Lakes.
