After visiting Keswick a number of times, i finally got a seat in this pub. Always so popular and full of dogs! Managed to get a table and tried their Hungarian Goulash....Very nice! Friendly staff too.

We visited here in September 2014 having been several times previously. In times past our main issue has been the ability to purchase food because we could never get a seat. This time around it was the service and the drinks we received that took us aback. Most real ale pubs will exchange your drink without question if there is... More

Real pub.....love this pub around Christmas time when it's very cosy and the spirit is really flowing. ...but it's a good place to visit all year round.

You must try their Hungarian Goulash, tasty and spicy, comes with a dumpling and garlic bread. The beef just melts in your mouth. Asked for the recipe and failed in my mission its obviously a closely guarded secret, and rightly so

Read other peoples reviews and had to go for myself. Had their specialty - goulash either veggie or beef both excellent. Real ale, mega dog friendly and got several doggie bags for my pooch. Great friendly atmosphere, shared tables with strangers and met some very interesting people.

After reading previous reviews I decided to visit and sample the Goulash , and was not disappointed . A very generous helping ( I think there is a choice of portion size ) . Very tasty and enjoyable . Good location in town , but busy at times .

Very small pub, tables very close together which was a little stressful as we have a very large dog! The staff were very helpful and friendly- they do little goody bags full of treats for dogs which is a great idea! We tried the goulash and it was absolutely delicious!! Overall it has a great atmosphere, good quality food at... More
