We have eaten here several times over the years and it never ceases to please. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. The massive cow pie is exactly as it says on the tin - my husband is a big eater and he struggles with the half pie - it is literally packed with meat and gravy - I bet you... More

As we wanted to dine in a PUB during our trip to Lake District we chose this restaurant, We had good Jennings Beer and equally good food. The Service was fast; Though we did not reserve in advance we could get seating for or group of Six in Fifteen Minutes. Worth the Visit.

We loved our dining experience at this fun, lively, historic and authentic gastropub located in the historic center of Keswick, England. The food alone makes it worth the visit, but also go for the ambiance, for the people watching, to interact with the friendly staff.

Most nights we finished off with a couple of drinks in this well furnished pub. Good value and friendly staff and, if you are still hungry, good choice of nibbles.

Yes, the pies are gigantic, even beyond the hype printed on the menu. But, unless you're into sheer poundage, the food here is really only quite average. The inn itself is pretty amazing, the oldest such place in town, and originally the George & Dragon, until George 1 ascended the throne and the Dragon was removed from the title so... More

Everybody is so right the pie is amazing, now my husband has a good appetite but on seeing the size of a full pie he opted for 1/2 a pie and was not disappointed with both size and taste. Although renowned for the pie other options on the menu are equally good standard. We booked in advance so no problems... More

We ate at the George one evening in July and one of us had the half portion of Cow pie (£12.95) and the other two the half portion of Famer's pie (chicken, same price). We also ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and paid £20 for that. A plate of bread came with the food. The food was fantastic - heavy... More
