Title: Good Beer Guide to the Hadrian's Wall Path.
Post by: Buggiba on May 28, 2015, 02:11:56 pm
Good news: All of the pubs/hotels we visited offered real ale.
Bad news: We didn't have time to visit any pubs in Newcastle but they are many and various.

Highland Laddie Inn, Glasson, listed in the 2015 GBG. Green King IPA, Old Speckled Hen and Timothy Taylor Landlord. Excellent
Kings Arms, Bowness-on-Solway. Jennings Cock-a-hoop and Marstons New World Pale Ale.
Hope and Anchor, Port Carlisle. Hesket Newmarket Mild and 6.3 bitter.

The Stag, Low Crosby. Jennings Cumberland Ale, Wychwood Fiddlers Elbow and Settle Brewing Co Classic. Knowledgeable landlord.

Greenhead Hotel, Greenhead. Listed in 2014 GBG. Jarrow Rivet Catcher, Jarrow Joblings Swinging Gibbet and Hesket Newmarket High Pike.

The Crown, Humshaugh. Thwaites Lancaster Bomber, High House Farm (1) Nel's Best and (2) Scotty's Forst.

Three Tuns, Heddon-on-the-Wall. Licksys Dimples.
The Swan, Heddon-on-the Wall. Black Sheep Bitter, Sharps Doom Bar, Taylor Landlord.

We collected our bags at the end of Hadrian's Wall Path from the Hadrian's Lodge Hotel, approx. half-a-mile from the end. Bar was closed but appeared to lack any hand pulls at all.

That's splendid news, Buggiba: what a wonderful collection of names, steeped in brewing history! It's enough to tempt me back even without the challenge of walking the Path!

So glad to hear that real ale is alive and well in Hadrian's Wall country. :D
