My partner and I are walkers who love the fells. On our last visit we decided to base ourselves in Keswick so we had some choices for food and drink in the evenings. I'd noticed The Squared Orange in the past but this time it was recommended by our hosts at the B&B we used. We found it to be... More

Popped in for a drink as this had been recommended on tripadvisor, and was not disappointed. Great atmosphere and loved the school desks as tables. A definite stop when in town.

I visited this restaurant in 2016 for lunch and had the meat pizza which was delicious and came fresh out of the pizza oven. Thanks to the staff.

This place is a gem. Good selection of beers and nice atmosphere. Food is great and fresh, and the cost is brilliant value. Just wished we lived nearer as I'd be eating here all the time.

Really on form. Great place for coffee and a snack, lunch or a fun time in the evening. Happily has the knack of attracting like minded people. Be prepared to share your table with strangers, you won't leave as strangers. Try the nachos, best value bowl of nachos we've ever come across!

Awesome place. Was really busy and it's not that big, but we were able to share a spot on someone else's table, but that's kinda what this place is like. Full of walkers / climbers / fell runners and their pooches unwinding after an adventure out somewhere in the Lakes. Had a couple of Leffe's and a wicked pizza and... More

Karl could fill this place twenty times over in the summer. It's serves cracking food, the beers more than OK but please don't tell everyone!

Very dog friendly even though the space is quite tight between table. We were lucky to get a table in the corner for our dog to lie beside. Menu is limited but very nice pizza and tapas.

We have been visiting Square Orange on our trips to Keswick for some time now and always enjoy it. The star of the show is the home made pizza. They are freshly made on the premises in a tiny pizza oven behind the counter. They are thin and crispy and very tasty. There are also a range of tapas, some... More
