Great choice of real ales which I really liked! Was a very dog friendly pub although we sat outside with our dog as it was a really hot day in March! To drink I had a local ale which was good! My partner had a Pimms and lemonade which she said tasted ok, however, ice was neither offered nor put... More

We popped into the Dog and Gun for a quick bite at lunchtime. Staff were friendly, service was quick and the soup we had was delicious.

Excellent choice of cask beers. Great friendly service and great food. Superb beef and ale pie and the famous Goulash. Enough to satisfy the biggest appetite after a days walking in the Lakes. Always on our list of favourites.

This is simply the best Dog friendly pub in Keswick. It has a lovely atmosphere, great beer, good food & dogs. Lots of them. Just recently we've been a bit disappointed with the staff who have been a sharp. Still love the place, the goulash is a must & they even sell chips now!

A small but so welcoming pub, with a great range of beers and some super food. Good service and welcomes Dogs. Thoroughly recommend.

A year or so ago, we enjoyed a good looking bowl of soup and bread for a quick lunch. We had hoped to repeat the experience, but the the hearty bowl of soup had become a shallow uninviting dish with two triangles of bread. We were not happy about the quality of the wine, of course this is a personal... More

We headed here having failed at three other supposedly dog friendly pubs outside of Keswick as had a previous enjoyable visit last year. Still a genuinely dog friendly pub but food was mediocre. Hubby has a cloudy pint and cold curry which were both put right and my lasagne must have been sat on a warm oven shelf as pretty... More

First of all my pint of Derwent Cote Light was cloudy, the barman reluctantly change it for another beer , after trying it tell me that it was a new barrel. Secondly, my Chicken Curry was stone cold when it was served. I had... More

No matter what time the dog and gun welcomes us. It must be a place not to be missed in keswick. The beer is great. The atmosphere fantastic and the food good. Don't go to keswick and miss it.
