Reviewed April 4, 2018

Traditional pub food, pie is excellent. Sat in restaurant because there was no room in the pub itself. Restaurant felt dated and lacked the intimate atmosphere of the pub but the food was the same. Return here each year for a big meal after a long walk.

Having asked various locals the best places to eat in keswick this place was mentioned regularly so we had high hopes.
It's a lovely old pub with a nice roomy restaurant.
We had a seafood platter to share which was a good start.i had a fish pie which was ok but not as good as others I'd tried in numerous other pub/restaurants.2 others had the half pie.both were unimpressed with the very overdone chips and said the pies were nothing special.
Top this off with a waitress who should not have been working as she was clearly unwell and spent the evening coughing over the restaurant.
I wouldnt recommend.there are better places to go.

Service was good. The beef pie was totally next level from any pie I have previously eaten. It was literally stuffed from top to bottom with rich, tender beef in a lovely gravy and spot on pastry. The home made chips were also great.

Was recommended by the owner of the cottage we had rented for a holiday, and was not disappointed. Dogs welcome, and a table was free for a fantastic meal. The Cow Pie was a special of the George, and washed down with a couple of pints of Jennings, got the weekend off to a great start.

Highly recommended.
