There was a good selection of food...some of it very hearty for big appetites after walking in the Lakes! I had chicken with a Jack Daniels BBQ sauce which was delicious.

We were staying in Keswick for the weekend and had the George recommended by our hosts and booked a table for 4 in the restaurant which is separate from the pub before arriving in the lakes ( and judging by how busy it was I think booking would be advisable). as for the food it was outstanding with a very...

Enjoy! Apparently the giant pie is fab - I had bangers & mash - be hungry whatever you choose, I think would be the best advice

Me and my boyfriend came here for a drink in 2012. When we returned to Keswick in 2014 we decided to return and have dinner here. The staff and really friendly and welcoming, The food was reasonably priced and tasted fantastic. There is a great feel to the pub and a great place to spend the evening

Been to the George many times and have never been disappointed. This dog friendly pub has a lovely friendly atmosphere, good selection of real ales but best of all, the food is brilliant. The cow pie is a must try, it's absolutely massive and packed full of meat. When in Keswick, the George in has definitely got to be on... More

My wife, 13 month old and I called in for an evening meal having never been before. We were greeted warmly and shown to a table in the dining area. I had half a cow pie (if you can manage a full one then I'm impressed) and my wife had the pheasant. The meals were great and only surpassed by... More

Escaping from the very crowded busy bar into the busy but pleasantly so restaurant helped give a positive first impression. Ambiance and service good, food so-so. The much hyped house speciality, steak pie was very average, the steak tasty but tough. Food is served in the bars as well as in the restaurant, and one huge plus was that dogs... More

We visited here and ordered the salmon with hollandaise sauce and chicken stuffed with venison with a peppercorn sauce. Both were really good and the beer was well kept. If there is one downside it's a bit expensive but then find somewhere in Keswick that isn't.
