Wonderful little gem in Keswick. Pizza's are authentic, thin crust and a great selection of toppings. We returned another night for tapas and live music. Wonderful atmosphere. Decent Rioja too. Small warning, you find your own table and pick up your own menus when you go in, so don't expect table service as you order at the bar. However the... More

Really glad we popped in here for a few drinks. Really relaxed and laid-back atmosphere. Good selection of local and continental drinks. Papers to read, games to play etc... No hassle or rush. Didn't try the food as we'd already eaten but it looked okay.

Ate here last night, blown away again by the Pizzas washed down with a bottle of White Wine, love the fact that a whole host of different types of people are sitting enjoying this place, all are made welcome even dogs :)

We visited this cafe/bar about a month ago. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, a good selection of reasonably priced wine, tasteful background music, friendly staff and the best pizza we had both ever tasted. Would totally recommend and will definitely go back.

Just popped into the Square Orange on my birthday night out with the intention of going elsewhere for a meal.Tempted by the food on display as it looked so good. We were not disappointed - the tapas were fabulous and the pizza was the best we've ever had - and that is saying a lot as we've ate a lot... More

This is THE best place in Keswick. The coffee is fantastic, loose leaf teas, and amazing food. Best pizza I've had in this country by far. Wine & beer top notch too. The place itself is ace, great vibe, nice and chilled with plenty of boho atmosphere. We holiday in Keswick once a year and coming here is always a... More

Smiley service, tasty pizzas, live music and casual mismatching furniture combine to make this the best bar in Keswick. You don't actually feel as if you're in Keswick though. It's more Barcelona then Borrowdale. More Lake Garda then Derwentwater. This place definitely has a continental vibe.

It's been a few weeks since last here and couldn't wait to return. This time we (the wife & myself) decided to have Tapas (4 for £14) and a bottle of Rioja between us. Chorizo in red wine, Patatas Bravos, Meatballs in tomato sauce & Tortilla served with crusty bread. All excellent and we decided on a second bottle of... More
