Went here after a recommendation from our guest house hosts. The bar was very busy, but we waited for a table and were not disappointed. Best pizza we've had for a very long time. Great wine (Rioja)! Staff were friendly and efficient. Mixed age range of customers, everyone friendly. Had a great evening, will definitely return.

We love evenings at the Square Orange. The pizzas are delicious (probably the best we've had!), the atmosphere is great, they do good beer and we can take our dog with us! What more could you want!

A very cool bar and a rarity in the Lakes as it's thankfully free of pictures of the fells. The pizza is absolutely top drawer. It's so rare to find places in the UK that make pizza the way a real Neapolitan would. But the Square Orange do. Be warned it's a small place, but that only adds to the... More

We found the Square Orange by chance when we were on holiday in Keswick and came back every night because we liked it so much in there. Nice bohemian, arty kind of vibe, and nice food as well - we just wish it was bit closer to home so we could go more often!

I love the square orange, great coffee.dog friendly,friendly staff,it can get very busy but that is just proof of how good it is.

It’s been a couple of years since we last visited Square Orange and it’s nice to see it’s still maintaining a very high standard. Sometimes all you fancy is some great ale and a delicious pizza, served up in a cultured, friendly and relaxed setting. Top marks – long may the Square Orange endure.

We came across this little restaurant by accident and loved it. We loved the decor and atmosphere - a bit quirky and original. The games kept us and the children entertained and the service was good and helpful. The pizzas were well enjoyed by the children and our toasted sandwiches were packed with flavour. Whenever we are in Keswick we... More
