We traditionally return to Abraham's when in Keswick.The broth is more like a main meal of stew. Everything top quality and good value - a nice touch is getting a free top up of coffee.

Lovely homemade broth and homemade lemonade......a treat! Variety of sandwiches and cakes. Scones and light bite meals available too...e.g salad and jacket potatoes.

Very tasty lunch. Jacket potato just right, generous amount of tuna and salad was lovely and fresh. Cumberland rarebit was well received as was the Cumberland sausage. Little shortbread biscuits served with all drinks melted in your mouth.

My favourite lunch venue in Keswick. Tasty home made soup, lovely bread, delicious salads and yummy cakes. It's not very big so can't accommodate a large party: our group of 9 were fortunate to be able to sit together (with some table moving!) but brilliant for couples or small groups.

This is our go to place if we don't want to try somewhere new. 99% of the time a great meal, albeit slightly more pricey. I've had soup, wraps, salads, various sandwiches, though sadly rarely have room for cake! Always lovely. Service is usually spot on, the odd blip but everyone has a bad day.

This tea room is on the top floor of George Fisher and is perfect whether you want a quick snack or a full meal. We always visit here during our holiday and have never been disappointed. The food is home cooked and there are always specials. The only downside is it's quite small, so at busy times you may have... More
