The Kirkstile Inn is a charming inn located at the heart of Loweswater, on the banks of River Cocker. The building has views of Wainwright’s Melbreak, which towers above it. The building dates back to the 17th century and has been restored to its former glory. The current owners have made it their mission to provide their guests with the best possible service and experience; even dogs have their own hydration station. Although the bar and picnic areas of the Kirkstile Inn are dog friendly, this is only until 6 pm.
The Kirkstile Inn Loweswater traditional English pub character and charm
The Inn has a cosy traditional English pub feel inside and a lovely beer garden looking out onto the river. If you like your beer, you’re in luck; this is the birthplace of the nationally acclaimed Loweswater Gold. Firstly brewed in an outbuilding of the Kirkstile Inn by the founder of Cumbrian Ales. Eventually, the popularity of the ale meant finally outgrowing the outbuilding on site at the Kirkstile. Cumbrian Ales now brew near Hawksead on Esthwaite water and supply ale across the Cumbrian region. They have numerous ales in their repertoire, including Loweswater Gold, Esthwaite Bitter, Langdale, American Invasion, Life of a Mountain and Vanilla Oatmeal Stout, all served at the Kirkstile.
