    Black bull 🙂

    The Sun is my favourite. (up the hill). Last couple of times I’ve been to Conisiston I thought the Black Bull fine for a pint but the food average.

    Books are banned in Coniston

    I want to stroll in to a pub in Coniston, eat some nice food, wash it down with a pint or three of good beer and read my book.

    Any recommendations?

    Sun has been ‘re-vamped’ – food more expensive, tree cut down from the beer garden, dining room extended unsympathetically. Went to Black Bull – on balance now has the better (more generous, cheaper) food, lots of ale selection. Could have all changed by now though.

    Torch and blanket required for reading – be careful out there.

    Is this actively policed?
    Will I be told off by a village bobby or be beaten to a pulp by a pack of rabid Cumbers?

    Would it help if I hid the book in a copy of Razzle?

    Wander along to torver and grab a pew in the pub there, church inn. Nice old bar, good food, great beer, and a buxom wench pulling pints. Mmmmm…..

    Top shelf material that.

    The issue with Torver is the hour+ walk home.
    (as I can’t be absolutely certain I’d pull the buxom wench)

    Don’t forget the best cafe in Coniston :

    But you will have to earn that stop first 😉

    walk? take the bike.

    Food at the Ship Inn out near the Old Hall campsite, then into Coniston for beer at the Black Bull.

    Job done 😉

    (Alas the Ship is a Robinson’s pub and the beer is, as a result, deeply average)

    And she absolutely loved my scots accent, just do yer best Sean Connery, you’ll be in there.

    (And yes, the Church Inn in wonderful and I try to pop in every so often… keep thinking I should move to Torver infact!)

    Black Bull.
    Bowl Of Homemade Chilli washed down with a two pints of Bluebird XB.
    Super – just what I needed after riding over Broughton Moor to Seathwaite and coming back over Walna Scar.

    In the past would also have said the Sun, but last time I was there the “change” as is being discussed was in progress, and I wasn’t impressed (price up, atmosphere and quality down).

    Agree with either the Bull or the one in Torver being the better option.
