Cow Pie

The challenge is the "Cow Pie" which has 1Kg of Beef in it, I didn't feel up to it so settled for a half. The meat was certainly packed in and moist, totally recommended.

We had an early supper here (multi-generational family group with three young children) at the end of our week's stay near Keswick, We were made welcome and looked after very well indeed by the really friendly staff here (thank you especially, lovely Kiwi lady!) and the food was excellent, with a good range of choices, particularly for my vegetarian daughter.....

This time we were even more impressed to find that ALL their batter is now gluten free, to avoid any cross contamination and that they also serve gluten free gravy. We visited at lunchtime and sat in the... More

Cow pie is one of the greatest inventions in the world, 1/2 is more than enough but it's beautiful, the pub is nice and central with friendly staff and dog friendly! Reasonably priced food and drink! No visit to Keswick is complete without popping in
