Food and Drink

Maryport is exceptionally well served with places to eat and drink. There are a number of characterful pubs throughout the town and on the harbour.

Our eateries range from elegants cafes and tea rooms offering light meals and cakes to those serving hearty meals to see you through the day. We have good pub grub and hotel resaurants and several takeaways selling tradition fish and chips, Chinese food and pizzas. Our harbourside tandoori restaurant is popular with locals and visitors alike.

The town boasts three hotels including Ellenbank, just outside the town boundaries which is home to Maryport sea captain Ritson and also the West Cumbria Keyboard and Organ Society which attracts some internationally renowned organists to town.

The Waverley, close to the station on Curzon Street is a popular hotel especially with the local club who hold meetings there.

The Golden Lion, recently returned to its former glory, has been a Shipping Brow landmark since the 17th Century when it was a coaching inn. Charles Dickens visited the Golden Lion and it was here that George Stephenson signed the Carlisle to Maryport railway company contract.

Maryort also has a small number of delightful bed and breakfasts and holiday lets. There are also holiday lets and caravan parks in Allonby and at Netherhall Rugby Club on Netherhall Road.
