      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      On our recent visits to Penrith this is our guide to the pubs and bars in Penrith. The Castle, Castletown: Fine if you want to listen to whatever music the 'regulars' listen to on Sky but overall a quiet and friendly pub. The Station Hotel: Fine if you like drinking with large groups of rowdy builders with lighting of a very bright nature! Not a pleasant atmosphere unless you are a builder or a teenager as there were plenty to be seen in the lounge. Stateside Bar: Fine if you are under 18, the average age of the clientel was around 15 with a pool table slap bang in the middle but a pleasant interior and good design. The Board and Elbow: Following its recent refurbishment this is now a lovely pub with lots of character, although the drinks here are more pricey, pleasant atmosphere but soon dies out later on. Gloucester Arms Hotel: This was empty when we arrived (10.30pm Friday night) then quickly filled with a large group of men which made us wonder about the possibility of a 'single sex' pub! The White Horse: What can we say, disco lights galore, 80's music, a very low proportion of toilets compared to the amount of people in the place who were mainly, yet again, under the age of 18. If you like disco music and disco lights and don't mind the queue for the loos then it is fine. The Waverley Hotel: Nice pub, nice atmosphere and good music, but what a terrible DJ that loved the sound of his own voice and drowned out most of the good tracks! Otherwise quite a nice pub. Warehouse: After spending a good 20 minutes in a queue to get in we expected this to have a 1am licence at least. Oh no, it is only open till 12am and is absolutely heaving. Good music but the dance floor is used more as a meeting place than for dancing. Lovely interior and drinks reasonably priced. Dog and Duck: We
      used this to wait until the Warehouse queue had died down, usual kind of pub, with good cocktails on offer, if you don't mind asking for a soapy tit wa*k that is!! Blues: This is a nightclub of a very bizarre nature. Unusually they do not play mainstream disco music but only heavy rock/metal music. Also if you are over 20 here you will feel very old. The entrance fee is extortionate and the drinks are expensive, the bar staff behave as if they really don't want to be there either (can't really blame them). Best given a wide berth. Of course, this is not a review of all the pubs and we plan to update this soon as we search for the decent pubs of Penrith :)
