user reviews of the Punchbowl, Great Broughton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Of 26 new pubs I tried in the West Midlands, Durham & Cumbria over the weekend, I have to say that this one was my favourite. It's a fabulous single bar local pub in a pretty Cumbrian village, well off the tourist trail. I had picked the weekend of the annual beer festival. A chilly February weekend seemed like an odd time for a festival. But it suited me just fine. 21 ales had been sourced from North East breweries. But the pub has only 3 handpulls. So only 3 were on at any one time. These were turning over quickly though. One guy came in and noted that 2 of the 3 had changed since his visit late the previous evening. The 3 on during my visit were Errant Tusk, Wylam Jakehead IPA & Allendale Wolf. But as I was leaving, the landlord was pulling through another. My half of Wolf was very enjoyable - a very smooth drink. Locals were clearly knowledgeable about their beer and also the local pubs. They were also happy to chat to somebody from out of town. Dogs are welcome. The one I fussed had just been walked up a mountain and back down by his owner - apparently the most exercised dog in Cumbria! Friendly place that is well worth a visit.

Love this pub. It was my local when I was growing up and my mum and dad still live across the road so I try and go when I stay with them, and have taken almost everyone else who comes to stay and they all love it. One of the smallest pubs I've ever been to - it's like Albert' front room. Always welcoming, good beer and cider and really cosy in the winter.

Great conversation and great welcome from a smashing couple who know how to keep their beer!

A really tiny, traditional Cumberland pub, run by delightful, friendly and welcoming people who know their customers but remember visitors. Beer is fabulously well-kept: Jennings Bitter and Albert's choice of guest beer - usually from Archers cos he likes their beers - and so does everyone else.
