The bar was surprising quiet, but the food was good and the service quick and friendly. Like many eating places in Keswick there was no problem with our two dogs sitting beside us while we ate. The meat in the steak and ale pie was very tender.

We ordered out meal and drinks from very polite staff this was our first visit and we will be going again as the... More

We enjoyed two lovely meals here in September and are looking forward to eating here again im June when we'll be in Keswick. Our food was delicious and good value for money. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome with our two Cavaliers

Our guests kept telling us what a little gem the Lakes bar and Bistro was so we just had to try it ourselves - and having done so we just have to agree, so much so that we have dined here 4 times recently. I say 'dined' as having a meal out is so much more than just 'eating' the... More

We live in Keswick and eat here fairly regularly. It is nice to go somewhere relaxed without a pub atmosphere where we know we will get a good meal with a drink. Last night we called in with friends without booking and had delicious pizzas, freshly cooked with plenty of toppings. At peak times we always book as the place... More

I've reviewed many places to eat that are 'dog friendly' but this rates as one of the best!! Food was excellent, service brilliant as always. We visit here quite a few times a year and am never disappointed! To the couple who were sat next to us on Tuesday evening and our '7' dogs!! and made the incorrect comments on... More

We've been several times and had the pizza, which is pretty good, and it's nice to eat somewhere that isn't a pub. On our last visit, I ordered the spinach & ricotta ravioli which wasn't ever so inspiring; the pasta was cooked well enough but the creamy tomato and asparagus sauce tasted neither of tomato or asparagus. The side salad... More

Visited here as part of a large group, as some of our group were having trouble finding somewhere to park the staff were very pushy as to when they would arrive as they were wanting the tables for other people later on. We had been encouraged to choose our meals before we came and these were brought out at military... More

We reserved a table for two at this bar/Bistro having read trip advisor reviews and having seen their menu online. Upon arrival we were seated on a wobbly table next to a drafty wall. Our drinks order however, was taken fairly promptly. The decor of the restaurant is pleasant, but it was fairly empty of people when we dined. We... More
