Me and my husband came here for lunch, we really enjoyed the food I had the club sandwich and my husband had a platter he said the scotch egg was amazing, best he's ever tasted. We were so full we couldn't even have tea, we sat in the bar which was nice as there was a photo shoot going on... More

We only sampled the atmosphere in the bar. We didn't stay or eat here. The decor has been done to a very high standard. A very cool vibe going on. Something a bit different from the traditional local pubs. Need to invest in training for the bar staff. Had the worst tasting Mojito ever. Good ingredients, he just didn't know... More

Hi there, Thanks for the kind words about the newly refurbished Inn on the Square. Barman Phil sends huge apologies for his mistake with the mojito and promises it was a one off error where he served it before adding the soda (a silly mistake which admittedly we all do every now and then), which he rectified as soon as...

The restaurant is called "Brossen" which is Cumbrian for having a full tummy or feeling stuffed! We went for lunch as an extended family group of ten - ranging in age from a toddler to grandparents. The food is excellent, the best in Keswick. Every adult would have happily had the children's food - the fish fingers were like mini... More

Hi Tara Thanks for the lovely review after your visit to Brossen Steakhouse yesterday. It was lovely to have you and your family dine with us. I think the children enjoyed being able to watch the chef's making their lunch through the viewing windows! Look forward to having you all back again soon. Thanks Dani More

Went for lunch today and it was delicious. We all had the steak sandwich and the steak was really tender. The waiter, who I think was called Marcus, was attentive and keen to please. I had seen their 'Snickers' dessert on facebook and I really fancied trying it! Even though it should have only been an evening dessert, Marcus kindly... More

We stayed at the hotel for the weekend of my birthday. We encountered a few teething problems, notably we had to change rooms as the shower was leaking badly. However all the staff without exception couldn't do enough to help and they really made it a priority to ensure my birthday was special - which it was. The hotel has... More

Visited Inn on the Square yesterday lunchtime with my wife. We had been waiting for this place to open for several months with a view to visiting for lunch and we were not disapointed.

The owners have done an exceptional job with this old Hotel, (formerly The Queens Hotel) It has a fantastic location right in the centre of Keswick. I can't speak for the rooms because we went for a meal but the ground floor interior is very tastefully done and the furnishings very luxurious and it has a tranquil feel to it.... More

I too visited the Inn on the Square on their opening night yesterday and I t is definitely NOT "Blackpool"! Entering from the street is a 'Wow' experience. The decor is very stylish and could perhaps be called 'retro/contemporary. Of course it won't be to everybody's taste but it is great to have the choice! The staff were very attentive... More
