What a breath of fresh air in Whitehaven the Gin and Beer It, is. A comfortable relaxing atmosphere in which you can enjoy a good selection of craft beers, largers, ciders and a huge selection of gins. Although on this occasion we didn’t eat the platters that were bought out looked amazing. We will definitely be eating here in the future. Hopefully this venue will enjoy many years of success it is just what Whitehaven needed congratulations and continued good fortune to Dave and Louise Best wishes Martin and Dawn

Best selection of craft beer around! From Loka Polly to Cloudwater to Siren Craft, there’s all the great names in there. Great selection of Gin for the ladies too. And would recommend the Deli platter. Really tasty and filling.

Cosy Bar in Whitehaven

We don’t take bookings. Just come along!Created in September 2018, Dave & Louise spent 2 months renovating the building,stripping it back to reveal the original stone walls and original flooring, with the aim to create a charming and relaxing retreat in the heart of Whitehaven’s Market Place. It’s an ideal place to chill out over a glass of wine, a craft beer or a Gin. We also provide a delicious range of platters and light nibbles including our incredibly popular Cheese & Charcuterie Deli Platter.

Warm and welcoming, a great place to enjoy an after work drink, while away the evening with a few friends, or round off the day in a most relaxing and friendly atmosphere.

We currently have 6 Key keg taps, and over 80 Bottled/Canned craft beers. Our beers change regularly but include Loka Polly, Weird Beard Brew, Siren Craft, Cloud water, Tiny Rebel & several local breweries including Eden river co & Keswick brewery.
We have over 30 Gins, including the Lakes Distillery collection, our House Gin,made in Cumbria.

We are dog friendly.
