Great food

We were in Keswick on holiday and went in for some pub grub! Very nice pub with great food could not fault it! In fact we went twice! Defiantly worth a visit. The only thing I would say is there is not much variety on the menu

Couldn't be happier with our meal at the Pack Horse Inn. Reasonable prices, fantastic menu and delicious food. Staff could not do enough to help and we're accommodating of even our most eccentric requests. The restaurant was full, yet we didn't feel rushed to leave (as slow eaters who like to sit over an extended dinner this happens often!). Highly... More

Very nice pub for a drink but very disappointing food. Would recommend trying some of other pubs in town if you're looking for a nice pub meal

We had been in to the Pack Horse for a drink prior to eating there. I understand it has recently changed hands. The day we were there was a young barman who could not do enough for you. He was almost running around serving drinks and changing barrels etc. We went in for a meal on a Sunday night and... More

Slightly tucked away just off the market place in Keswick we stopped in to avoid the infamous Lake District rain. We were hit straight away by some wonderful smells coming from the kitchen. After choosing a couple of drinks from the great selection of local ales on offer, we managed to grab the last remaining table in the pub. The... More

Having previously called in just to sample the real ales, we returned on another day to eat early, as we were going to the theatre later. We had time for a main course only, but my fillet of sea bream on a bed of seafood risotto was melt-in-the-mouth. Well priced and, despite being early evening on a Wednesday, the place... More

We popped in on a Sunday, my husband is traditional and loves his roast. I ordered mussels in white wine, with garlic bread. Well the roast was bland and very little meat,the roast potatoes were yesterday's jacket potatoes. The mussels were over cooked, which is criminal and to add insult to the dish; the sauce was really thick. The garlic... More

Went to pub on a stag night. Had great food and service. Never seen waitresses smile so much even though they had lots of stairs to climb. The pub we booked on the second night couldn't fit us in even though we had a reservation, so we tried back at the Packhorse and they moved lots of other reservations around... More

I was a member of a Stag party for a weekend of adventurous activity in The Lakes. On our first night we had booked a late slot of 21:00 and we didn't leave until 30 minutes after last orders. The staff were brilliant, very attentive and pleasant to interact with. I was concerned at how we may be looked upon... More
