Bar fly has heard that many pubs in our area have decided to take a winter break. These include the HERDWICK at Penruddock (closed 27 Jan to 1 Feb inclusive) and DOCKWRAY HALL Penrith 8-16th Jan inclusive). Others may be planning short closures and many more have reduced hours. Barfly advises you to check before travelling. Whatpub.com is kept as uptodate as possible but could miss seasonal variations.
