If it’s just a drink you’re after, a pint of Jennings ale will always go down well – and it’s brewed in the heart of the town. It doesn’t get more local than that…

There are warm and welcoming tea shops and coffee shops, where the emphasis is on local ingredients and homemade fare. Some of them have their own bakeries, so the cakes and bread couldn’t be fresher, and also offer bistro nights, often with live entertainment.

Don’t miss the pubs either – the majority of which are dog-friendly. From the liveliest of nights out, to a quiet pint, Cockermouth has a great range, many of them serving food too. Their menus range from bar snacks or proper hearty pub grub, to something more contemporary. The one thing they all have in common is a great range of beers, many of them brewed locally in Cumbria.
