Herdwick Inn, Penruddock

The Herdwick Inn is a traditional village pub located in the tiny village just north of the A66 near Penrith.

About the Pub

The Herdwick Inn is named after the hardy breed of sheep found in Cumbria. Dating back to the 18th century, the pub has been sympathetically renovated and retains a traditional village pub feel to it.

The main bar area features a small curved bar, plenty of original wooden beams, exposed stonework and a large open fireplace. There are plenty of little nooks to settle down in with a mix of high backed chairs and pews throughout.

There is also a games room, large garden and an upstairs restaurant. The pub is located on the Coast to Coast cycle route and they have facilities to securely store your bikes should you be cycling to the pub.

The Beer

The pub is owned by Marstons so you can expect to find beer from the Jennings brewery as well as a guest beer. Available when I visited in June were the well-kept house beers from Jennings – Cumberland and Bitter and a guest wasn’t available.
