Very comfortable and interesting décor. We only went on for a full breakfast but even that was tasty and plentiful. Once you caught the eye of the young staff, everything was fine.

Been meaning to visit this place lots of times and decided to pop in on a quiet day in January at lunchtime. The service is friendly and there are lots of choices of food meat and non meat. Portions are pretty big so this is probably going to be your main meal of the day. Excellent Halloumi, Fries/Sweet Potato fries... More

Called in today with two friends while we were on a trip out to Keswick. We weren't too hungry unfortunately, but I had the very best tomato soup I've ever had and they opted for beef burgers, which looked delicious and they assured me tasted delicious too. Proper food, properly cooked. The chef and the waitress were both really friendly... More

We've had great food here every time. Strongly recommend the 'Route 66' and 'Cheesey cow' burgers. Their pancake stacks are amazing too. Well worth a stop if your passing through. Handy as they're just off the roundabout coming into Keswick and parking outside for customers.

We always make time to visit when we're in the Lakes, and this time it was for a well-deserved brunch after a walk up Barrow. Good food, friendly service and a lively buzz - The Filling Station never disappoints.

Popped in on Sunday with my husband and parents on our way to Bassenthwaite. On arrival there were no booths available so we perched on the stools at the counter while we decided what to eat, While we went to the counter to order a booth became free so we grabbed it! Nice to get a proper mug of tea... More

We have passed this restaurant on many occasions and not stopped, but this time on a planned visit to Keswick we made a point of stopping here for brunch. We weren't disappointed and will certainly return. The mugs of tea and coffee were brilliant and although we only had the breakfast rolls the main courses going past looked brilliant.

After biting into what turned out to be the tastiest burger I had ever had I knew on what was my first visit in March 2013 that it would not be my last. Keswick is full of good places to eat, many of them dog-friendly, so what makes this place special? Firstly, the Filling Station is welcoming. I have visited... More
