Decided to go for a meal at the Square Orange based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We filled up from a selection from the Tapas menu and unfortunately didn't leave enough room for the pizza which we had also wanted to try. John & Dawn

We only popped in for a drink as recommended by a couple we met at our Lodge B&B! Lovely glass of Macabeo white wine and well priced. Nice little wooden tables all cosy and higgledy piggeldy in a good way! Food looked great and the staff were lovely! A brief visit but you could tell it was popular and I... More

Quick lunch visit yesterday when we enjoyed the barbecue pulled pork ciabatta with cheese and a couple of drinks. Great service, decor reminiscent of an Amsterdam cafe bar - very continental!

Went for dinner here a couple of times during our three night visit to Keswick. The pizza is very good, though you might have to wait a little while if the place is busy - some good local beers on tap help to pass the time.

The Square Orange became my favourite 'local' during a recent hiking trip in and around the lovely Cumbrian town of Keswick.

Dined at the Square Orange twice in our recent stay in Keswick. A really unique and friendly little cafe with great draught beer, a terrific range of pizzas and tapas, and a very quaffable Rioja. Highly recommended.

Great little bar with a real Spanish feel, for a moment I could imagine I was in Barcelona! They had a good selection of tapas.
