For that Mediterranean feel visit Cafe bar 26 in Keswick.

We have visited this place many times and have enjoyed good music, food and drink. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and work hard to provide a consistently good service. It's great to see a variety of musicians in an atmosphere which is conducive to a great time.

We had a really interesting lunch and everything was cooked to perfection. Our only mistake was not making dinner reservations for later that evening!

We recently found this B&B/Cafe while searching for somewhere to stay in Keswick. The rooms look like they have recently been updated, nice and clean, nice shower, nice big double bed and nice and clean! What more could you want for somewhere to stay. We went for a weekend away to do some walking. There is no car park attached... More

A return visit for lunch and everything as good as before - even better! A well put together menu with dishes to appeal to everyone - sensibly priced for its quality: pleasant and v friendly staff. Will be back.

My favourite place in Keswick to chill out. Great food, great staff, cool music and the best coffee ever. The Music nights are a must see - get there early as usually very busy.

A great bistros style cafe and bar. A perfect lunch time retreat for our style. Jazzy back ground music; staff that chat to you; good coffee, and a cold beer. Eggs Benedict perfection. Paella was great - a great blend of flavour, chorizo,and prawns. I wish we were staying in Keswick now. May be next time.
