Factory Tap5 Aynam Road
Opened as the Bowness Bay Tap in early 2015 the range now includes many breweries (predominantly Cumbrian). Sited in converted cottages on a former carpet factory complex, its bare limestone walls, and tables made from barrel ends on old cable drums make for a fascinating interior. Upstairs exposed beams create an atmospheric space, sometimes hired out for private functions. From its opening the tap has been a popular venue for locals and visitors to the south lakes. Westmorland CAMRA Pub of the Year 2017.
