The Globe Inn, Hensingham, Whitehaven, Cumbria

The Globe Inn is a traditional pub located in Hensingham on the outskirts of Whitehaven in west Cumbria.

Brief History

A previous West Cumbria CAMRA pub of the season winner, the pub is run by Helen Brown. She originally ran the pub under the ownership of Punch Taverns but deemed the pub unviable and subsequently left. After the pub deteriorated and closed, the pub was purchased by a local development company and Helen returned. 

She spent a year eliminating the pub’s bad reputation and introducing quality ales. As the pub is a freehouse, Helen is free to choose which ales to serve. Consistently serving quality ales has earned the pub a place in the Good Beer Guide (2011 and 2012). 

The Interior

The traditional pub is split over two floors with a small bar and big screen to the left as you enter and seating to the right. Upstairs there is additional seating and a pool table. To the rear is a Outside seating area.

The Beer

Two ales are usually available with Cumbrian ales featuring along with ales from other Northern breweries such as Theakstons. Beer tends to change around 2-3 a week.
