We visit the Dog and Gun every time we are in Keswick and love the atmosphere and the selection of well kept real ales on tap. Add to this the quality of the meals and you're onto a winning combination. Their speciality is Hungarian Goulash...not to be missed. Thoroughy recommend.

Busy pub serving a great goulash and some excellent ale. Great to see a totally dog friendly pub even if I didn't have mine with me.

We have just returned from a short break in Keswick and although there are many excellent pubs in town all serving real ale and decent food, we like the Dog and Gun the best.

This is without a doubt our favourite pub in Keswick. After a long walk this is a must. Unspoiled good beer and relaxed atmosphere. We love it and we are sure you will too.

Excellent pub in the centre of Keswick, as the name suggests - very dog friendly. Excellent selection of beers and a good varied menu, renowned for its Goulash, you got to be hungry to eat a main size portion and not overpriced. Warm friendly atmosphere, mostly visitors with a sprinkling of locals, well managed with friendly staff.

We went on TA reviews and boy they were right! Fantastic Goulash, attentive staff and really great atmosphere. Our two doggies were made very welcome and loved the treats. If we were staying longer In the area we would be back here every day probably. Great pub, loved it.

Can't really add to other reviews! Goulash all the way, very friendly place, no worries about mucky feet or soggy gear. It can be a struggle to get a seat, go early or persevere! No downside for us.
