The Sally is a pleasant country pub and serves good real ale. It doesn't seem to ever get busy and they don't serve food on Monday and Tuesday which was a shame as we were only in the area for a couple of days so couldn't try the menu. The staff were friendly and they were very happy for my... More

We found ourselves at "the Sally" after being turned away from the nearby Horse and Farrier - they clearly allow all their tables to be pre-booked so although most were empty at 7pm they were spoken for at 7:30 and I get the impression that they have a well proven formula of sending people over to The Sally which is...

I have been in the UK for about a week now and this was the best pub I have been to so far. Mum and I walked the Keswick Railway Footpath from Keswick to Threlkeld (I highly recommend it if you are in Keswick) and wanted to get something to eat and drink before we walked back to Keswick. We... More

I called in to the village one evening on my way back from a business meeting. The pub looked welcoming with candles in the window and fireplace. I enjoyed tender lamb roast dinner and glass of rioja. Colin behind the bar was busy yet was able to deliver service with a smile. Highly recommended.

Visited this pub at Easter week so went on a daily basis, weather was stunning so sat in garden at the rear which had plenty of seating area, however the service by Colin behind the bar was dreadful, the most miserable person I've ever came across working in a bar, he almost put me off my beer, very sarcastic too,...

I must admit we descended en mass, on our way to our cottage in the Lakes. We also wanted to watch the Arsenal v Liverpool game and this place seemed to fit the bill. I'd have thought that with 18 of us landing for lunch, he'd have been really pleased to see us, but sadly not. It's a great little... More

A friend and I came to this pub after a walk, we didn't stay for food, and the pub was much quieter than its sister pub across the road, but the service and friendly staff were what made this pub. Charlotte and Martin couldn't have been friendlier, we would have goneback across the road to eat in a busier pub,... More

Further to my review of the Horse & Farrier, I also ventured to The Sally during both Christmas Day and New Years Eve. Originally we were planning on going in to Keswick for New Years Eve but after having a cracking time on Christmas Day evening, and being made very welcome by the owner, we decided to stay on further....

We were staying in the Horse and Farrier the sister pub across the road which was very pleasant. As the restaurant in the Horse and Farrier is exactly that and not really a bar we decided on the second evening to pop across to 'the Sally' and have a drink here. The guy behind the bar was very abrupt, I... More
