Had viewed online amongst a number of possible places to stay but hit the road with not much of a plan. Arrived in Keswick and checked a few places out. Fortunate to have been able to get a room here very last minute as they only have 4. Couldn't fault anything at all. Lovely room, spotless, fantastic staff, top class... More

On a recent trip to Keswick we noticed that a lot of the shops that had previously struggled and closed had been revamped as small café/restaurant establishments. Great! a bit more choice for the regular visitor. Also the development of a Weatherspoons would be for some a welcome addition to what's on offer in the centre of Keswick (not for... More

We called yesterday for lunch. The restaurant has a nice vibe to it and different seating levels. The staff are young and extremely helpful. I had the Goan Fish Curry and it was delicious. It took a while to come but it does advise you on the menu that the food is freshly cooked. We had a couple of red... More

Cafe Bar 26 has long been a favourite of ours for an evening meal, and although we have called in for morning coffee this was the first time for lunch. There is always an excellent atmosphere in here and the food is always good or better. There is a good choice of quality wine and cocktails (and mocktails). As stated... More
