Fantastic goulash and great pub if you love dogs. I couldn't believe they have a dog menu and dogs can get away with anything but children are only allowed in until 9pm. Classic! We will be back soon.

I took my four youg kids in at lunchtime two weeks ago. The staff were great and very apologetic but the owners had a no kiids meal policy. However, they sell god snacks! Adventerous as my kids are sometimes curry or goulash weren't going to cut it for two of them (two were ok). I asked if we could bring... More

My wife and I visited the Dog and Gun for lunch on Sunday. Goulash is one of my favourite meals and their take on is up there with the best in my opinion. The beef was really tender and full of flavour as was the sauce and the dumplings. My wife had the veggie version of the goulash and she... More

Lovely pub which seems to have as many dogs it as humans, even sells bags of dog treats so you can all eat together! The goulash is great, make sure you are hungry if you order the large!

………right in the centre of Keswick. Attentive staff, well kept beers and a decent wine by the glass selection. Good home made food that spurns the deep fat frier all add up to a place well worth a visit. Dog friendly which is another big plus.

Great goulash, simple but tempting menu. Went as a couple, a friendly atmosphere and totally dog friendly. The only down side was no dessert menu, just tea or coffee.

We visited here over the weekend and as a place for a drink with the dog in tow it's excellent. We went back in the evening for tea and ordered veg goulash too our dissapointment found it to be like a chunky veg soup! Having ate here many times over the years it was a let down. Will be back...

We visit Keswick every year and always make a point of going to the Dog and Gun for a few pints and the goulash. One of the best pubs I've ever been to and the goulash is totally delicious. Service is very welcoming and friendly which makes the whole experience great.
