The Ratty Arms, Ravenglass, Cumbria

The Ratty Arms is a Good Beer Guide railway-themed pub located on the west coast of Cumbria.

About the Pub

Housed in an old Victorian railway station dating back to 1873, the Ratty Arms is located in the small west Cumbrian coastal village of Ravenglass. Located on the Cumbrian Coast railway line, the pub is frequented by ale drinkers that visit pubs along the route including the Prince of Wales in Foxfield.

Just a short walk from the station is the starting terminus of the Ravenglass and Eskdale narrow-gauge steam railway that runs from Ravenglass to Boot in the heart of Eskdale.

Located on the north platform, the pub has plenty of seating looking onto the platform as well as inside around the bar. The simple interior does have a slightly dated feeling to it but it’s very welcoming and the good value pub grub appears to get good reviews on Trip Advisor.

The Beer

Half a dozen hand pumps are available at the Ratty and feature mainly northern beers from breweries such as Theakston, Ennerdale, and Jennings but also ones from further afield such as Brains from south Wales.
