We dined here on three nights during our stay in the Lake District. Each night the meals were excellent. The service was also excellent on all three occasions. There is always a choice of good beers and fine wines. We love eating out here as we can take the dog in with us and it seems we are not the... More

We've been to Keswick many times, but have not visited this establishment for over 20 years. We arrived shortly after 12 noon for lunch and there were no other customers in for about five minutes then approx. 10 others arrived in the space of 10 minutes. We ordered sausage and mash. It arrived quite quickly, The mash was okay, if... More

We stopped in for drinks and were intending to stay for dinner and the quiz night. However, the service was below par and the staff were very unwelcoming and could not crack a smile to save their life! Needless to say, after one round of drinks which cost us well over £20 pounds(for 3 people!!), we left after we finished... More

Six of us had a meal in here on a Friday night although it wasn't that busy. Food and service good, staff friendly. No complaints from any of us.

I'm not normally one to leave a bad review but after eating here today I feel I have no choice. It was lunch time and we both ordered a prawn sandwich and a portion of chips to share. I think the picture speaks for itself. The bread was thin neither of us had hardly any prawns in. The Marie-rose sauce... More

Came here for a Sunday roast fora birthday meal – from the exterior it looked promising. Appearances couldn't be more deceiving. Welcome was terrible – couldn't have been less interested if he'd tried. Wished I'd have turned around there and then. Food came less than 10 minutes after ordering, portions were a decent size but food was bland. Beef was... More

One of our favourite Keswick pubs. It always has a good selection of real Ale, especially from Robinson and Hartleys breweries. The food is always excellent value, nicely plated up, good sized portions and good value. Always tasty - I particularly like the Steak and ale pudding - a bit of a treat for me. One of the best Wifi... More
