Fantastic food and a good pint of Guiness , The Cow Pie is a hell of a meal and takes some finishing the meat is tender and you will need a big walk the next day to get rid of the calories but we'll worth it.

My husband and I both really enjoyed our meals here at The George and would definitely recommend it. I had Jack Daniels BBQ Chicken breast with sweet potato chips. My husband had slow cooked picanha rump steak.

The signature meal - Cow Pie is both tasty and value for money. The waiting staff are friendly and made our visit a lovely experience.

We booked four weeks in advance knowing on a saturday night it gets busy, last minute we changed the booking time from 1930 to 1800 and turned up to be given a table for two cramped between two other doubles with less than a foot apart, it was so impersonal that this alone ruined what was a looked forward meal,...

We had been going to the same local pub for over twenty years for it's warmth, character and charm but since it has been 'modernised' internally we have sampled all the other pubs in Keswick and really enjoyed doing it.... but 'The George' has come out firmly on top.

We had sunday lunch at the George and it was delicious. Unfortunately missed out on the Cow pie this time but we'll be back for that in May.

Over priced and the food was of poor quality. They got my wife's order wrong and brought the right food as a side plate. Will not go back.

Looking for somewhere to eat, it was the 'Gigantic Pie' on the outside menu that brought us into the George. It was just what my husband and I both fancied, good old British pup grub. Advised just to try the half was a good decision. We both had the farmhouse. The portion is large, loads of excellent filling with plenty... More
