The Kirkstile Inn, Cumbria

The Kirkstile Inn is a 16th century pub and hotel located between Loweswater and Crummock Water (Loweswater Lake and Crummock Water are about ½ mile away). Surrounded by stunning peaks and fells, the pub has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and is popular with walkers. Despite it’s remoteness, the pub gets very busy all year round. I visited late on a Saturday morning and it was already filling up.

The main bar has low beamed ceilings, partly stripped stone walls, a dining room, a choice of lounges and a roaring log fire. There is a beer garden at the front that offers stunning views and if it’s a little cold there is a large covered verandah that offers the same views.

The beer range is good – up to 8 cask ales – and features beers brewed by the pub such as Loweswater Grasmoor Dark, Melbreak, Gold and Langdale. They also feature local guest breweries such as Yates. Until recently, the Loweswater beers were brewered on site but they recently aquired Cumbrian Legendary Ales and I think they brew the beer there.
