First time - will eat here again

We normally go to Keswick a couple of times a year but have never eaten here before. We will be eating here next time we come... We booked on Saturday afternoon for that evening. When we arrived we hung around the bar, having been served by an amiable barman. Within about 10 minutes we were shown... read more

This lovely restaurant was two minutes from where we were staying and what a shame we didn't try it earlier. Firstly we were able to take our dog in which is a huge plus for us. The food and the service were faultless and we enjoyed three courses with wine. They adapted my food choice to make it vegan without... More

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was good, even on a busy evening. We recommend the Spinach and Ricotta Raviola and the Steak and Jennings Pie. This restaurant was so good that we here on the next day also.

We were almost put off because from the outside it looks like a cafe, however, we went in based on other reviews and because of being dog friendly. We were soooooo glad we did. Risotto was superb. Excellent fish. Deserts were morish. Ample drinks to choose from all topped off with friendly, competent service. We rarely eat anywhere twice on... More

Visited in Whit week. Nicely furnished restaurant and the food was reasonably priced and tasty. Five people, some of us chose two courses chosen from a set menu for a set price. The food was very nice. However, the choice of cheesecake came served in a glass ice-cream style dish, which was a bit of a surprise. One of our... More

Called in for a light lunch, having read good reviews. First time in Keswick for a few years, so we weren't up to date on where to go. The reviews were right - this turned out to be ideal for us. Seems popular with local people, and relaxed and friendly ambience, comfortable but modern. The widescreen TV was on, which... More

Decided to go here as everywhere else we tried was booked. Firstly felt awkward at the door where no one came to us for a good five minutes, but waiters/waitresses hurried past us. My friend and I then finally got a seat and our order was taken. It was a Sunday, we chose one spinach and ricotta ravioli and the... More
