Popped in for lunch during our recent trip to the Lake District. Great menu selection - I had antipasti, whilst my husband had a shrimp open sandwich and my mother in law had eggs royale. The food was delicious and the staff were so helpful, even turning the music down slightly as it was troubling my husband's hearing.

Party of eight including two young children who were welcomed by the attentive serving staff. Tasty good quality locally source food at a fair price. Highly recommended but you need to book for the weekend even out of season

Bar 26 offers tapas, flatbreads, draught beer and atmosphere in a cosy setting with live music - check that first. Friendly, clean, reasonably priced, we loved it.

There were nine of us. Service is at table and was carried out with aplomb. All drinks came as ordered and without undue delay. We also had their chocolate brownie and very good it was too. A nice place to stop either going to, or returning to town from, the lake. Their lunch menu looked worth trying out but this... More

Always drop into this chilled out cafe whenever we visit Keswick - comfy chairs, smooth unobtrusive jazz/blues in the background and a great cup of coffee all add to the relaxing vibe. The foods pretty decent too!

This must be so popular by all 'in the know' because it was completely full and sadly people were turned away. A full Yorkshire plate of delicious all day breakfast, gorgeous toasted buns and a great cuppa. Couldn't wish for anything more and for 2 people with extra cuppas £15 - try it it's scrummy. Just one thing there are... More
