Drovers Rest Inn at Monkhill Celebrates Pub of the Year

Drovers Rest Inn at Monkhill Celebrates Pub of the Year 

For aficionados of real ale, craft beers, and great food who have been to The Drovers Rest – this will come as no surprise and many will be flocking to The Drovers this Weekend May-12-14th to join them as their Beer & Sausage Fest gets underway.

Camping At Cardewlees

Since Beki and Tom took on the pub a few years ago, they have worked so hard to offer people something a little different to this rural country pub that sits on the outskirts of Cumbria’s largest city.

Becki and Tom have put their stamp on this brilliant venue, yet continued the tradition at The Drovers Rest Inn of bringing new beers onto the bar regularly. As it stands to date, they are now on Ale No. 1651.

Announced as Pub of the Year by Solway Camra, they are delighted and rightly deserved, we think.

Becki said, ‘Thank you to everyone for coming to celebrate with us this weekend when it was announced; it was truly overwhelming how much support we have from our fabulous customers!

Thank you to all the cracking breweries that have worked with us this year to ensure we have the highest quality beer on our bar.’

Something is always happening at The Drovers Rest – but the one constant is the awesome beer and great food.

Weekly and monthly events keep things fresh and different alongside their seasonal dishes, delicious smokehouse delights, and excellent ales and beers.

Events to look out for are as follows:

Tapas Tuesday is a popular day of the week at The Drovers Rest Inn, where you can enjoy mini plates while sharing flavours and experiences.

Tom spends Tuesday mornings working with our butcher and fishmonger to select the freshest items to feature on the menu. Pick any three dishes for £15.

B*tch & Stitch, 3rd Thursday of the Month, First Session, May 18th, 6 p.m.

Bring your projects and problems, and together they’ll put the world to rights (and maybe do some crafting in the process).

Bottle Club

Spaces are limited, and demand is high for this night.

A meeting of ‘hoppy-minded’ people who love trying new, exciting, and interesting beers from across the style spectrum and the world!

Once a month, we meet in the Snug to sample a selection of bottled and canned beers, styles, and recipes.

Specially selected and hard-to-source draught beers are there to enjoy alongside special limited releases, barrel-aged releases, and packed-only beers.

Membership is only £25 per meeting and is a great way to try a variety of excellent beers for a great price!

As well as access to our beer meetings, enjoy exclusive discounts, tickets to their annual beer pairing dinner, invitations to their brewery tours and beer festival trips, plus lots more!

Furball Fridays, 19:00–21:00

We always love our canine guests, but Friday evenings are a celebration for all our furry friends. Extra treats are available, even Doggy Beer and exclusive merchandise. Every good boy or girl deserves a night in the pub!

Snug Sessions with Solway Folk Night

1st Tuesday of the month—as it says on the tin, Folk Nights in the Snug

Join fantastic local musicians as they play and crack through the night as generations did in years gone by.

Quiz Nights

Alternating Sundays, once a month, from 8:15 p.m.

Entry is £5 per team (or free if you book a table to dine before the quiz).

A maximum of 5 people per team are allowed.

A gallon of beer will be awarded to the winning team to enjoy at their leisure.

Sausage Making at the Dog House

Carlisle Gin Tasting Evenings.

Join Tom and Beki as they partner with the team at Carlisle Gin to sample

their delicious selection of local Spirits from Cumbria Distilling Co.

With so much going on at The Drovers Rest Inn, as well as the day-to-day service, it is no wonder they have been awarded this recent accolade.
