Lovely village, we walked the rail trail from Keswick to Threlkeld and stopped here for lunch. Service was very good, but thought the food on the expensive side. We visited with friends who usually go for the OAPs specials but these were not available.

Booked back in February for a one night stay for 2 of us on a walking holiday. Got a call from the hotel soon afterwards asking if we'd like to book a table for evening meal as the pub is popular, which I thought was a really nice touch. Got quickly checked in and had decent rooms with enormous beds.... More

Re-visited this establishment after a 12 month break to give it another chance! Soft puff pastry, under cooked fish and over cooked chips (got the impression that the food was microwave blasted/re-cooked) Service good, efficient (a bit too fast) and nobody asked if the food was ok. The couple sitting next to us had to keep sending items back that... More

We called in here previously for a drink and/or snack while walking in the area but this was the first time we stayed over . This is a super old "hostelry "with lots of genuine character . The staff are friendly and helpful and all seemed happy in their work. Make sure you book a table as the restaurant is... More

Friendly and very welcoming, rooms are basic but clean, food really nice but big portions so be prepared. Restaurant has a nice homely feel and any time we have been in it's always very busy, obviously popular. Not much in Threlkeld but it's a nice base for Keswick and if you are walking.

The Horse and Farrier was more than just a welcome shelter from the Lakeland rain! We stopped for lunch and were more than impressed with the simple, uncomplicated, freshly prepared fare. The warm welcome is genuine and the local Jennings beers are well kept. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in the Horse and Farrier for one night in a tiny twin room with a view out to the rear sheds, a single wardrobe, two old sets of drawers and a small, slightly grubby en suite. The room was very unprepossessing with no pictures on the magnolia walls and no redeeming features. The beds were actually comfortable enough... More

Thirteen of us had lunch on Bank Holiday Monday! You could be forgiven if you think it was impossible for us to all have a great meal and beers given the date and the size of the party but no!! It was superb all served together, piping hot and delicious.

It's an added bonus to have a quaint charming English dining pub in the heart of the pretty Threlkeld village lying at the foot of Blencathra mountain where we normally stay in one of the village's holiday cottages and often will dine at our favourite nearby popular pub where you are guaranteed to get very friendly and hard working attentive...
