We ordered a large selection of tapas and found that everything we ordered was cooked to absolute perfection, particularly the chorizo in red wine. The staff (man) was hospitable but not intrusive. The general atmosphere and music fitted perfectly and generated an extremely enjoyable lunch experience. Would absolutely go again and would recommend to everyone!

Visited this venue a couple of times over the last week, Very good coffee and wine and very reasonable prices (didnt eat there but certainly will next time I'm in Keswick because the food, pizzas and tapas looked amazing) enjoyed in a fantastic atmosphere - from the colour of the walls, to the basic furniture and the Latin American music...

We had coffees and alcoholic drinks during the day, every day whilst in Keswick for the week. The Square Orange is a quirky well run establishment with a great staff, exceptionally good service and the best pizzas and tapas in 22 years !! The food on offer is freshly made to order, and is truly delicious. Their pizza's and tapas... More

As this was near to the house we were staying at we used this Café bar quite a bit for drinks. The service was always excellent, the range of beers a welcoming break from Jennings and the atmosphere warming and wonderful. We always planned to eat but never got around to it (they don’t take bookings) but I am sure... More

The owner of the B&B we were staying in recommended this place and we're so glad we listened. It's not big and brash and could easily be missed as it's not on the main street. The decor and atmosphere is just so laid back and relaxed, a great place to unwind and enjoy some continental drinks and some simple but... More

We visited this quaint little place numerous times during our week long visit. The selection of beers is vast (make sure you try the Kwak and Poretti) and all reasonably priced too. The food is absolutely to die for! Between 6 of us we sampled roughly 8 Tapas dishes, a pizza, 2 different ciabattas and a wrap. All of the... More

Having done a little bit of research before our holiday to Keswick I knew that I was going to love this place and it totally met my expectations! An ecclectic mix of Belgian beer bar, French Cafe and Spanish tapas bar. The staff are friendly and service prompt and efficient. I particularly appreciated having an old favourite of mine -... More

This cafe bar transports one to the continent. The bar is backed by an array of shelves displaying a comprehensive selection of spirits,liqueurs and vermouths. The food menu is quite diverse and includes tapas, ciabatta and pizzas, supported by wonderful coffee and a choice of teas. The Square Orange is an absolute delight and a must visit location.
