Looking for somewhere to eat that was dog friendly we came across Cafe Bar 26 .. Very dog friendly; they even have freebie dog biscuits on the bar to keep you canine friend happy while you eat. It was a bonus that the food was excellent as well. We popped in at various times throughout the week and where made... More

We visited a couple of times on our recent trip. It was very well priced and the tapas really nice, the service was good as they remembered us from a previous visit and with a couple of beers it was a wonderful evening and a change for the micro Keswick pub food. I would recommend this.

My partner and I visited here for a late Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. The menu was varied and the food fresh - which meant we didn't mind the slightly lengthy wait for it to arrive. They also have a decent selection of wines and beers, and a range of homemade cakes - a sample of which we enjoyed... More

We've been many times before and always enjoyed it. Our visit this time was dreadful. We ordered a cocktail and waited fifteen minutes with still no sign of the cocktail. We went to bar and told it was just coming. Waited another ten minutes, it still hadn't arrived so we just left. Not going back there.

Tapas good but only if you come with a sharing party. as a singleton all food came at once. Food good but you need time between each Tapas. Will go again next time in Keswick

Keen to get out of the rain, we came upon this cafe purely by chance. It has a lovely atmosphere with comfortable leather chairs, or tables and chairs if you wish sit up and eat. The background music was pleasant (ie not ear splitting!) and the staff were most welcoming. Must mention the Ladies toilets - they were pristine and... More

We have visited Keswick many times and usually have a pub lunch. Couldn't decide where to eat today and as we normally just walk past the Cafe Bar 26 we thought we would take a look. Inside the seating is varied with normal tables, comfey chairs, high stools and also benches. The atmosphere is relaxed. Both of us were pleasantly... More

We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday after visiting Keswick Market All four of us commented on the freshness and taste of our choices, portions are not huge but good quality and presentation. The seating is comfortable with enough space between tables and clearly zoned I liked the furnishing and decor. It turns seamlessly into a wine bar in... More

Let me start by saying the atmosphere here is lovely. Very laid back out and welcoming. That is why we enjoy coming here so much. We were very disappointed with the new tapas menu as to us it used to be the nicest place to have tapas in the local area. Gone is the grilled Camembert and chunky chips to... More
