City Of Carlisle

Picture source: Stephen Harris


The City Of Carlisle was situated at 61 Royal Mint Street.  Although this pub is of 1800s appearance, it bears a stone with the date 1620 – possibly the date the pub was established, although I have not found any early records.  It was certainly here by 1806.  For a brief while in the 1850s, this pub was renamed the Blue Peter, before reverting to the City of Carlisle name.  By the 1920s this was a Truman’s Brewery pub.  It has now been converted to restaurant use.
Now used as the Simmons Bar.
