I expected to see their equipment or to be told something about their beers. Visiting this place was like visiting a pub but in a smaller local. There were three cask ales (which they of course brewed themselves) and some bottled ciders. As the weather...More

We had wine/cocktails before heading out for dinner in this cosy and friendly bar/shop. The only issue is that the red wine by the glass was colder than we would’ve liked. The shop has a fantastic range of products for every budget. You can order...More

We arrived on a very blustery and potentially rainy day so sat inside which I think detracted from the experience but the beer was decent and the service friendly and efficient. I would like to return when better climactic conditions prevail.

Hi Tracey, We have a place near Grange and in our experience the bus service is really basic on a Sunday so you may struggle to get up to Cartmel

Yes, we are happy to welcome dogs, and their owners, in Unsworth's Yard courtyard and inside the brewery tasting room and bar.
