We had to wait nearly 15 minutes, once shown to our table, before we even got a menu. The four stars for service was, as we found out, the waitress was by herself, looking after about a dozen tables; cleaning them, showing customers to tables, taking orders, serving food, taking payment. In light of that she was very pleasant and... More

On the plus side Sweeney's is in the centre of Keswick, close to all the amenities and sights. Unfortunately the rooms are small and basic which is not reflected in the price of £90 per night which we thought well above the average for the area. Our bedroom window was above the vent for the kitchen which was unpleasant at... More

We had lunch here as two families with three young children (5, 5, 1) and a Border Terrier on Sunday, 12 October. The food was pretty good. Two of us were tempted into having the Sunday Roast which was filling and well cooked. The children's food was also good with a decent portion size and well prepared too. They bent... More

The room is very basic. Laminate floor no carpets or rugs so a cold feel to the room. Venetian blinds at the windows no curtains. Single glazed windows so vehicle noise early mornings and late evenings. Bathroom is a converted cupboard? Very narrow, so basin is very close to toilet, difficult to use toilet or basin. Shower is a 'pod'... More

We booked this last min the day before, and arrived at 4pm on 30th Aug, On arrival we were shown to our room (number 2), this room was clean, very spacious for my wife, and 4 year old to share. No complaints so far. The towels were clean, and there were, tea and coffee facilities in the room together with... More

Going in after seeing the great price menu on board outside we were greeted with a warm welcome. I ordered a mozzarella and tomatoe panini .very large and very tasty meal with a good helping of side salad and chips.although not busy when we went in you can tell its popular because of the price and good quality of food

A last minute decision to eat late on a Friday evening in Keswick in mid-August was met with the usual "full" or "too late"....with the exception of Sweeney's. We didn't order until after 9 so didn't expect too much in the way of service or gastronomic delights but were proven wrong on both counts. The food came astonishingly quick and... More

Stayed for a couple of nights in room 4, which is a large corner room on the second floor. The room was spotless, had crisp clean sheets on a comfortable bed. The en-suite was also immaculate and nicely fitted, power shower too. Towels were bright white and soft. Sweeney's is ideally located just off the main square and the manager... More

Ate here last Sunday (2 adults, 3 children). Worst roast beef dinner I can remember and the childrens' chicken nuggets had been fried up a few times!! On asking for the bill, we noticed we were being charged for an extra jacket potato that we didn't have - £6. Pointed this out and was told we could put it towards... More

We dined in Sweeny's over the weekend, The food was awful, we only ordered a Roast and they could not get that right. The Pork was over cooked so it was dry and hard, the vegetables were so hard that we were in fear of breaking our teeth. The Gravy was mad with Gravy Granules which had not dissolved. All... More
