Very busy small and friendly pub, that has a great choice of drinks - but also is famed for it's goulash. We both took part and loved it - very filling with the garlic bread, but just what was needed.

On a trip to Keswick The Dog and Gun was one of the first pubs that was recommended to us, and it became one of our firm favourites. The night we ate dinner there was certainly one of our food highlights. It does a great goulash, and the rabbit pie was excellent. There is a great range of beers of... More

Lovely little pub which feels like a owner run venue, but is probably owned by a large corporate. Put your coins in the brickworks to help the mountain rescue take american tourists who are out of their depths off the hills! hide your kids hide yo wife, bring the family fur-ball it seems like the whole town is competing in...

What more can be said than the beer was worth every penny the atmosphere was electric and a good time was had by all. The down side is it is too popular and at times you can be hard pressed to find enough room and it can be a little uncomfortable.

After spending a week in Keswick, we visited the Dog and Gun twice, due to its great dog friendly atmosphere, it's amazing goulash and chicken tikka masala (which I had twice) :) my hat goes off to this place, prices are great, 1 goulash, 1 chicken tikka and 2 drinks for £18. Makes for a great lunch or dinner stop... More

Called in here one afternoon. Really liked it. Cozy with a good atmosphere. Good value for money. My husband enjoyed the chicken curry. I enjoyed the steak pie.

Authentic but get there early to avoid disappointment. Limited but tasty menu as small kitchen. It's normally busy but food is yum.

During a wonder of Keswick it completely lashed it down. Ran to see if they did food, it did, but was rammed due to everyone sheltering from the rain. Stopped for a drink which was great, No chance at getting a table so went else where. Bar staff apologetic, will try again soon as the food looked great.

Wonderful traditional pub selling a good range of real ales in really tip top condition. Add to that the food in particular the Hungarian goulash(awesome). It's always a pleasure to eat and drink in the Dog & Gun.
