Typical Wetherspoon Lloyds No. 1 bar open from breakfast until late, named after the designer and builder of Carlisle Castle, William Rufus. It is popular with shoppers and families but can get noisy at nights and weekends, and is the venue for watching sporting events on the pub's numerous TV screens. Food is served all day and there is a separate dining area. Children are welcome but with restrictions. It is two minutes from the railway station.
