Description: Cafe Bar 26The perfect place to enjoy your time in Keswick.Located on a bustling pedestrian street, close to the busy Keswick Market Square and the shores of Lake Derwentwater, Café Bar 26 is a relaxed and stylish wine bar serving great illy coffee and a superb range of beverages. Perfect after a day on the fells or a stroll around the shops. Feeling peckish? We offer delicious continental style lunches between midday and 3.00pm, freshly prepared, using only the finest ingredients. We also serve tapas and Italian-style flatbreads everyday between 5.30pm and 8.30pm. Join us in the evenings for interesting wines, continental beers, a wide selection of champagnes and cocktails in our unique ambience. Finally, what better way to end the day than to stay overnight in one of our contemporary en-suite bed and breakfast guest rooms conveniently located above the bar. There is wireless broadband available throughout.

Nice relaxing atmosphere, Choice of cocktails and mocktails. Board games to play. We used to refer to this as the"peanut " pub due to the dishes of free monkey nuts to help yourself too. This has now been replaced by a selection of family board games. The pub offers coffee and cake too.
