THE sally

Welcome to The Sally where our hospitality is as warm and roaring as our open log fires.

Situated in Irthington village, just north-west of Carlisle and close to the market town of Brampton, our historic pub is at the heart of the north Cumbria community.

Recently refurbished

A former Victorian coaching inn, The Sally has recently been refurbished to create a stylish and inviting contemporary interior.

The Sally cooks up an irresistible menu of delicious home-cooked food and wide range of ales and beers.

It’s the pub everyone is talking about.

“Traditional on the outside, modern on the inside, we pride ourselves on creating an inviting, warm ambience for all our guests,” say owners Shaun Gardner and Jimmy Little.
Call in today for a drink, lunchtime or evening meal and enjoy a real Cumbrian country pub experience.

The Sally has 5 stylish comfortable and spacious guest rooms with wi-fi. Completely redeveloped and refurbished in Spring 2018, the rooms offer a mixture of sleeping configurations and can be adapted to the size and nature of your party. Much more than a B&B, The Sally gives you all the mod cons you’d expect from a hotel, but the atmosphere and personal care you can only get from an independent business. All rooms are en suite with shower facilities and some have an additional bath. Commercial grade TVs are fitted as standard and for that perfect night’s sleep, you can select from a pillow menu. Full of character and personality, each room has its own unique décor and Shaun and Jimmy have worked with a local interior designer to bring each one to life. Room service from the downstairs dining menu can be arranged for guests.
