My first stop in the home town of Jennings was appropriately a Jennings pub on the Main Street. I chose to sit in the front bar, with its real fire. Music was playing. Ales were all from Jennings - Bitter, Cumberland Ale & Sneck Lifter. In hindsight, I should have had a half of Sneck Lifter. I resisted, as I was driving. But it was the only pub I was to see it in during my Cumbrian crawl.

Smart ,likeable and friendly in keeping with the rest of the town. A warm welcome is assured here and the beer is A+. Recommended.

2nd pub in Cockermouth from the 2015 GBG and its this very smart looking Jennings house conveniently located by the bus stops which was exactly the reason I was saving this one to last.

7 hand pumps with 6 ales on (Jennings Bitter was on 2 taps). The majority from Jennings, 1 from Daniel Thwaites and 1 from Lancaster. My pints of Jennings Bitter were cracking.

This pub more than any of the other 2 has a more local pub feel to it, its quaint and relatively dark inside but this is a positive thing. The barman was attentive and chatty.

To the rear is a sun trap courtyard garden which was perfect on the afternoon I visited. The Bush is a really nice pub with good ales, friendly service, a nice garden area for these reason I deem it a must visit during your time in Cockermouth.

Walking along Main Street in Cockermouth it is hard to believe that 18 months ago, in November 2009, it was submerged under up to 8 feet of flood water when the Rivers Cocker and Derwent burst their banks after 12 inches of rain fell in 24 hours. Today, nearly all the shops, businesses and pubs are trading as if nothing had happened, but the numerous plaques on walls indicating the height of the flood water are a stark reminder of the trauma that the town experienced.

The Bush a Jennings pub on Main Street was one of the many premises affected by the deluge, but today there is no trace of the trauma. The Cocker Hoop was tip top, as were our toasted sandwiches. The comprehensive lunchtime menu is obviously popular with the locals of all ages. The staff were all very friendly, efficient and courteous. The slight downside was that food is only served at lunchtime.

My rating is 9/10
