Lindal Bowling Club

Lindal Bowling ClubPennington Lane, Lindal-in-Furness, Cumbria. Phone: 01229 582217.

Unknown to many people in the area, Lindal Bowling Club is tucked away on Pennington Lane, right on the edge of the village. Apart from obviously being used for bowls matches, the club also has a bar that is open every night of the week, with non-members being most welcome.

For a small annual sum you can get club membership, which entitles you to use the facilities, including free use of club and bar for private functions. The club boasts a pool table, pool team, and ladies' and men's darts teams.

Being a club, the drinks are a little cheaper than most places, and a small but well kept selection is on offer, including Theakstons beers. If you want to do more than just drink, visit on a Monday night when 3D is enjoyed (no I won’t tell you what it is, you’ll just have to visit!) and the club is full.

With friendly bar staff and a warm welcome from the regular club members, no pub crawl in the area would be complete without a visit.

Railway Inn

Railway Inn Lindal6 London Road, Lindal-in-Furness, Cumbria. Phone 01229 462889.

A bright and friendly place to meet and relax. The oak bar, slate floor and comfortable furniture set the scene. No juke box and no fruit machines.

Vegetarian options are on the menu.

Beers from cask include local favourites such as Another Fine Mess, Laughing Gravy, and Black Dog Freddy, plus many other guest ales which are on rotation. On draught there are Foster's, Strongbow, Theakston's Mild, John Smith's Smooth, and Guinness. There are the usual bottled beers and alcopops, and a regularly changing selection of wines from around the world. Low alcohol lager is available for the drivers.
