The Square Orange is a great choice for any time of the day: delicious coffee, fresh pastries, scrumptious ciabatta sandwiches, tapas, and a full bar. The food and drink were more than sufficient to tempt us to stop in a couple of times during our stay in Keswick, but what made it exceptional were its people. There's the friendly feel... More

The Square Orange is fun, hip, cool and the most amazing blend of coffee house, cafe, bar, pub, snack shop all rolled into one!

This is such a chilled and relaxed place. Nice little place to eat & drink, good selection of drinks including beers, spirits, cocktails so something for everyone. There's also some games and things available to play which just adds to the fun. Would happily visit again.

Not an exaggeration to say this is probably the best bar in Keswick I've been coming here several years and it's always been my firm favourite in Keswick for a drink either with friends or solo. Good selection of decent beer, always a good couple of real ales on, fantastic chilled out atmosphere, and dog friendly. Also has wifi! Great... More

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!
