We stayed at the Horse and Farrier Inn, we have eaten here before and it is excellently located for local walks. As before we found the meals excellent. We tried the curry, the chilli, the Cumberland sausage and the steak and ale pie. The local ales were also excellent. The only area for improvement would be that the accommodation does... More

We visited The Horse &Farrier after climbing Blencathra on a sunny day in April. The pub was clean and welcoming. Had a family meal and I have to say the food was delicious - Stilton and broccoli soup was just amazing! Very clean toilets, very nice staff. Money well spend!

The number of times I have been on the A 66 to Keswick and never spared a thought for Threlkeld - what have I been missing ? The wonderful friendly ambience of a Lakeland Conutry Pub and with Jennings beer too - a real heavenly haven. The attention from the staff was phenomenal - table for two - we were... More

All of the staff are very friendly and helpful; the beer selection is good including my personal favourite (Sneck Lifter); and all the food was well cooked. The dog friendly accommodation across the road in The Sally pub was good. Would we eat here again? Definitely. Would we stay here again? Definitely

When we arrived and heard that the Pub had been sold by Joules last year we were a little disappointed and having read some of the reviews. I needn't worry, everything was just as great, I don't recognise the negative comments...as we have only great experiences at the H&F. We have stayed in the H&F , the cottages and now... More

Stayed for one night. The pub is a very welcoming and cosy establishment. However the bedroom and bathroom were very small, although very comfortable. As a bar meal the curry my wife had and the sirloin steak i had were fine, if a bit expensive. Breakfast was prompt and excellent. Overall the experience was very good, accepting that we had...

We stayed in the Sally just over the road from the Farrier really big room - huge bed, small but very nice little bathroom, previously I stayed in the Farrier. The weather was truly awful but the staff, resturant and service made for a great eeekend away. I will definately return

Six of us had lunch yesterday after a morning in Keswick. Very good pub food- delicious, well-cooked and generous. Lovely puds, if you can squeeze them in! Very cosy and comfortable old place with lots of separate rooms. Special mention to the staff who were unfailingly cheerful, polite, helpful and very "on-the-ball" We don't really get here often enough!

Fantastic value for money. Great staff, fabulous food and excellent accommodation. From booking to leaving, all staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Can't wait for my next visit. This pub with rooms is in a fantastic location for seeing the North Lakes.
