Bitter End

15 Kirkgate Cockermouth CA13 9PJ 01900 828 993

We say

Cockermouth is home to Jennings brewery, whose beers are found all over the Lakes and beyond, so all hail the Bitter End, a fab little independent microbrewery and pub, hidden away up a Cockermouth side street. It might be Cumbria’s smallest brewery, but the beers are excellent – with wacky names like Cocker Snoot and Cuddy Lugs – while the bar meals are really popular. The meat in particular (steaks, rack of lamb) is all locally sourced, and there’s always a fish special on too, from oven-roast cod to seared tuna.
