We went there for dinner as we could take our dog. Enjoyed the food, I had the scampi which was lovely and a huge portion for around £9 so great value.

Been visiting Keswick for years but this was first visit to this pub, can't believe we have missed it. Food was excellent and they scored extra points for doing my husbands favourite steak pudding. Really nice laid back atmosphere and friendly staff.

this was the first time that we have ate here as we'd never walked past this pub before. We booked a table for a Wednesday night and pleased we did as it was packed! Got a table on the top floor which was ideal. The service was fairly slow as it was packed but we didn't mind the wait and... More

We visited on a Sunday lunchtime. Steadily busy and nice atmosphere. Staff were helpful and friendly. We chose the pub because they had a Vegetarian menu aswell as a main meal and seafood menu.
