The Royal Station Hotel

Carnforth:

Large Victorian hotel near the station. Slightly reduced in size with some bits rented out, and a bit faded grandeur (but evidently under refurbishment). The bar was pub-like, and pleasant enough, full of locals on a Friday evening, we came for a drink, then returned for food as the nearby Chinese restaurant was shut. Food and beer both fine, though only 1 ale available, but decent lager as well. Could be absolutely magnificent with investment, and the current people seem to be doing a good job.

The Snug

Carnforth:

A micropub at Carnforth station, and a fine example too: great beer, conversation, no TV, no music, no gaming machines. Casks stored in a chiller at the back of the room. About the only criticism I could make is tall chairs and tables, but besides that, perfect. Short opening hours: 12-2 lunchtimes, 5-9pm Tues-Sat, 12:30-4:30 Sunday.
