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.

Absolutely fab meal. Lots of small tasty dishes that were tasty with a spicy undertone. Delightful pizza cooked in a little pizza oven at the bar and nice wine. Lively and busy atmosphere went more than once during our week stay and look forward to going again.

Loved the decor especially the orange painted walls. Had a delicious hot chocolate. Asked for a little cold milk as it was too hot and was given a jug of milk with no quibbles.

The pizza was cooked to perfection by 'Simon' - in fact it was the best pizza I have had in years. The tapas was superb and the whole place has such a welcoming atmosphere that you instantly feel among friends. Arrive early if you want to eat here as it fills up quickly. We collapsed into a chair having just... More

Judging by the other reviews on here - would love to have spent an evening at this place, but sadly we were only in Keswick for the day, so came for a quick lunch stop.

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.

Small bar off the main drag. Good cask beer. Nice continental and bottled beer selection. Good tapas. Good coffee and wine apparently (not tried). Dog friendly. Excellent, friendly owner. Lovely chilled out atmosphere.
