The Kirkstone Pass Inn, one of the highest pubs in the UK (1,481ft above sea level), in the Winter (Boxing Day 2009) and Spring (April 2010). I was fortunate to take both shots from exactly the same spot (actually unplanned).

There are some outstanding beer gardens in Cumbria, north west England. This one can be found in Langdale in a remote part of Cumbria. The large garden has plenty of seating and fantasic views of the surrounding mountains. They also have a good selection of beer. This is the view from the beer garden looking towards the mountains. You can view more photos and read a review of the pub at Travels with Beer.

Three pump clips at the excellent Beer Hall at the Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley, Cumbria. The Beer House is the brewery tap for the brewery and you can expect to find the most of the beers they produce on tap at any one time.

The Wasdale Head Inn is a remote pub and hotel in the west of Cumbria in north west England. The pub is surrounded by England's tallest mountains and is where British rock climbing began. The pub has an excellent beer garden and I love the giant 'Inn' sign painted on the side of the building which allows walkers to spot the pub from a distance.

Jennings Brewery is Cumbria's largest brewery and is located in Cockermouth in the north west of the county. The company can trace its roots back to 1828 and has brewed on the same site since 1874.

This is the view from the remote Wasdale Head Inn in Cumbria, England. It has to be the best beer garden that I've ever seen. The area has the tallest mountain in England, the deepest lake in England and the smallest church in England. It's also widely regarded as being the birthplace of British climbing. Despite it being very remote, the pub is extremely popular. You can read a review of the pub and view more photos on Travels with Beer.

Cadbury Creme Eggs and beer. A perfect combination? The photo was taken at the excellent Wheatsheaf Inn in Lorton, Cumbria. Great beer, food and they have their own campsite.

Situated at 1,481ft above sea level, the Kirkstone Pass Inn in Cumbria is one of the highest pubs in England. I recently drove up the 'challenging on a good day' Kirkstone Pass to visit the pub but was disappointed to find that it snow had called off play.

Situated at 1,481ft above sea level, the Kirkstone Pass Inn in Cumbria is one of the highest pubs in England. I recently drove up the 'challenging on a good day' Kirkstone Pass to visit the pub but was disappointed to find that snow had called off play. The pub has got a beer garden which, on a good day, offers spectacular views. Here's what the beer garden looked like when I visited. See also a video of the area.

Situated at 1,481ft above sea level, the beer garden at the Kirkstone Pass Inn, Cumbria is one of the highest in the country. On a clear day the views of the surrounding area are spectacular. On a snowy day Boxing Day in December, they are still just as spectacular. View a video of the area.
