The perfect place to unwind with a glass of something chilled and enjoy delicious, freshly cooked food with family and friends. Our food is cooked entirely from scratch using fresh, seasonal produce. We have selected a range of fine wines, beers and spirits to accompany our menu. When the weather is good, guests can dine on the terrace which is covered with huge umbrellas and super-efficient heaters...Ideal for those long lazy al fresco lunches! PS...Whilst bookings are not mandatory they are strongly recommended. Email reservations are not a definite booking unless we send you confirmation but we will try our very best to accommodate you.

Amazing food, great atmosphere

I love The Dog & Gun! My family and I split the baked Camembert as a starter, which was delicious. For lunch, I had the chicken and white wine pie, which I can't recommend enough. It was absolutely a treat. Not to mention how wonderful it is to hang out with all the dogs who come to Keswick (and... read more

I hope the owners read this as I have fond memories of this place,but over the last few years ,it is a classic demonstration of how to mis manage a good venue. I returned recently for lunch after a break due to disappointing service and we were the 1st of 3 couples who probably won't come back for a long... More

went out for Father's Day meal as a party of 6, we had a very pleasant experience and the staff were very atentative. The atmosphere and surroundings were pleasant and although very busy we were served quickly with each course but not so fast we felt rushed. The children enjoyed the experience too. I had the mini ploughmans to start,... More

Went here with my partner on Saturday. Had the most amazing meal. We both had the chowder for starter and steak as a main. I normally don't have steak when out dining because of bad experiences in the past as it is never cooked right but this time I did opt for the steak and wow what a great choice... More

We visited recently and we weren't hugely impressed, wasn't our first visit however we felt it was our most disappointing. The food was basic and seemed to be poor quality as it tasted pre cooked and not fresh. The service also was substandard for a quiet week day evening - the two staff members on shift seemed to be pre... More

I recently went here as part of a larger group (9) for a Sunday lunch to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. First impressions were of a very good renovation to a traditional pub. It seemed to be filled with medium to large groups having Sunday lunch. First, the good. The food was decent. This was a 3-course prix fixe Sunday lunch.... More

I drive past the Dog & Gun regularly and finally got chance to stop for a bite to eat Thursday lunch time with my family. The setting was beautiful, with well maintained gardens and a very clean maintained building. We was greeted outside by a kind waitress who took us to our table on the terrace. We asked the waitress... More

Visited with my daughter and grandson. Starter was to die for wild flat mushroom in filo pastry with lots of cheese & onions. Children's meals were good quality home cooked food and presented lovely. Desserts were yummy. I couldn't fault the food or service would definitely go back.
