Our mountaineering club were staying in Keswick for the weekend and as the forecast wasn't great we decided to have a quick wander up Cat Bells then find a pub to watch the rugby in. The Swinside Inn was spot on, great beer, very helpful staff. Just a pity about the rugby result (Scotland 19 Italy 22)!

After a day on the hilltops we wanted some real grub. Nothing too fancy , just your typical hearty home cooking that fills you up, taste great and refuels you for the day ahead. Ideal cosy setting with a lovely roaring fire. This is what English pubs are all about in the Lakes.

We recently had a really enjoyable stay at the Swinside Inn. As other reviews have said, the inn is a lovely place to stay - the staff are very friendly, the inn itself is very cosy and the food is excellent. The rooms are warm and clean, as is the bathroom. As we were staying in February when there was... More

I booked into Swinside on a last minute deal for myself and partner. I wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't looked into what we would be getting. Swinside is a beautiful traditional Inn with a gorgeous homely bar and restaurant, perfect for the chilly evenings with the log fire going and a beer in hand. Great end to... More

Stayed here for two nights in January for my wife's birthday to do some walking. Rooms are clean and comfortable in fact we slept like babies! The hotel is in a great location for walking which is what we wanted. Food in the hotel was ok. My food was served just warm and when it was swapped it was over... More
