A taste of Ireland has come to Carlisle.

Lynn Robinson and her daughter Emma have opened a new cafe called Penylins on Lowther Street.

It serves a traditional Ulster fry up, soda bread, potato bread and Ireland’s famous Tayto crisps.


Emma, 25, said: “It was my mum’s idea. She’s from County Down originally. We moved to Cumbria about 17 years ago when mum fell in love with the place.

“My mum was a nurse but she’s given that up to open the cafe.”

The cafe, which employs nine people, is situated above Simons Hair Shop and was previously home to the Bakehouse.

Outdoors shop set to close after 25 years



A LANDMARK South Lakeland outdoor shop is closing its doors after more than two decades of service to adventurers.

Lakeland Great Outdoors, located off the A591 at Plantation Bridge, just outside Kendal, will shut later this year after operating for 25 years.

Owner Colin Hartley said: "I'll be 70 this year, so it's time for me to retire. My manager, who was going to continue running the shop for a few more years, has given notice that he will no longer be doing so due to health reasons, so we have decided to close down. Twenty-five years has been a good run.

A CAFE destroyed by the Storm Desmond floodwaters has re-opened its doors after undergoing a total refurbishment.

The water in what was once known as the Coffee House at Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Kendal was a metre deep when the floods hit in December 2015.

After months of using a portacabin and temporary toilets, the cafe has been rebranded as The Bakestone and is now open for business.

New-look café opens at home of author Ruskin



A RENOVATED cafe has been opened to people visiting the former home of the Victorian author John Ruskin.

Besides a new look, the Terrace cafe at Brantwood, near Coniston, now boasts a new brunch and lunch menu.

Howard Hull, director of Brantwood and The Ruskin Foundation, said: "I am confident that under head chef Ben Willan, and his creative, energetic young team, the Terrace cafe will become a destination in its own right and its success will serve to guarantee the survival of one of the jewels in the crown of the Lake District.

"The menu is designed to ensure that visitors get that same sense of inspiration, excitement and renewal when eating with us as they do when visiting the Brantwood, its special exhibitions or gardens."

Today was my first opportunity to get some shots of the new Pioneer foodhall site (see post #78 of this thread). Shame that the weather was a bit inclement, and next time I might need my point & shoot, as the fencing intruded on my shots somewhat.

General view of the site



A hole in the ground, partially filled! There was a mobile crane on site earlier this week which presumably put the concrete blocks in the trench, but unfortunately I was not able to get a photo of it.

This one seems a bit vague, in that Lidl want to open a store in Workingotn but seemingly have not decided where yet.

From the Times and Star:

"Lidl announces plans to open new West Cumbrian store

Supermarket chain Lidl has revealed plans to open a new store in West Cumbria.

The company has announced it has set its eyes on Workington and a spokesman said: "Workington is very much an area of interest for Lidl, however we have not yet located a suitable site at this time."

It is understood the supermarket chain is considering locations in the town.

A Lidl store opened in Maryport in October creating around 40 new jobs.

The company has planning permission for a branch in Cockermouth and work is due to start soon at the Station Road site, although it said there has been a delay."

Carlisle's gourmet burger restaurant has closed due to lack of interest.

Belted, in Warwick Road, opened in the former post office building in 2014 to much fanfare.

Despite high hopes - and having what the company described as one of the best locations in the city - the firm has confirmed it has called it a day and closed the city branch.

Cranstons unveils new look Carlisle city centre shop



Cranstons has cut the ribbon - of sausage - at its latest food hall following a £200,000 revamp which has transformed it from a traditional butchers shop.

The firm has given its Carlisle city centre store, on Fisher Street, a makeover, its first for almost 20 years.

This shop - which is now similar to its existing food halls in Orton Grange and Brampton - retains its butchery and delicatessen and has expanded on the ready-to-eat food available. It also features a breakfast and lunch takeaway area and more local produce, including lines popular in the company's other stores.

Marc Allen

After almost 17 years working in other people's bars and nightclubs, Carlisle DJ Marc Allan is set to open his own.

Another high quality food outlet in Carlisle, then .

Then again, the burghers of Carlisle didn't seem to be interested in gourmet burgers at the Belted restaurant which closed recently, and the promise of up to 65 new jobs is not to be sniffed at in this part of the world.

From looking at the applications on the planning portal all that has been applied for so far is the signage - I can see nothing for the actual construction of the building itself.

The site in question is what used to be London Road Goods Station. I assume that the McDonalds will occupy the vacant land next to London Road (seen in the foreground of this photo of the old tram shed), as the Goods Station buildings are listed (albeit rather decrepit)
