The Dog and Gun is always a great watering hole. Great atmosphere and serving a good selection of what I call "proper beer", The bar is always busy which is a good sign for any newcomer, the bonus is, it is dog friendly.

Why have the changes been made to what was a great, popular, atmospheric pub? Now it's too bright, cramped and rather soulless. The food was good, staff pleasant as always but it feels like it's more a money making scheme now than your friendly local. For the first time in 10 years we did not go in, chose to eat... More

We visit Keswick a few times a year as it's one of our favourite places as it's particularly dog-friendly. We always look forward to going to the Dog and Gun for the lovely food and warm, cosy atmosphere. There are always quirky people to chat to, it serves lovely food and the service is always friendly and efficient. Fantastic after... More

Found the Dog and Gun lacking in character after the refurb. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable but most importantly the prices are simply too high. Won't be rushing back.

I couldn't find a better place to have a great real ale, such a good selection of Real ales and standard lagers alike so couldn't find a better place to kill some time.

Buzzing pub in the middle of Keewick with a nice range of real ales and good pub grub. Came here after the floods with a group of friends - have to say that, despite the horrors of the floods, the pub was full, service was good, staff friendly and the atmosphere superb. Everyone mentions the Goulash - yes, it really... More

Food was less than average pub food. Had read reviews about the Goulash so I tried it and was not impressed just tasted of tomatoes and not much else.
