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.

Just back from a visit to Cumbria and stayed at the Horse and Farrier Threlkeld. Nice comfortable double room with great breakfast choice included in the price. Staff are really friendly and accommodating. Nice characteristic old pub with really nice food served each day. Will definitely return for another stay in the near future and would recommend the Horse and... More

I stayed overnight with my girlfriend and large dog, and we were all made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff and other guests (local and visiting). We had delicious country bar meal in the Horse and Farrier, then a fantastic sticky toffee dessert at the sister pub The Sally just across the road. Breakfast was a classic fry... More

Just back from 3 nights at The Horse and Farrier Inn at Threlkeld and had to write a review to say what a pleasure it was to stay there . Perfect bedroom with huge bed and lounge area , more like a suite than a room . Perfect location overlooking the fells just outside Keswick. Good food , excellent value... More

Horrified by the recent reviews I tried to find an alternative, but to no avail. Since I was only staying for 1 night and my top priority was closeness to Clough Head (so that I could walk the Helvellyn range) I decided that I could endure anything! It is an excellent pub. The food was right up my street (the... More
