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.

Went for lunch. It was a lovely sunny day and we had a table out on the terrace. The establishment looks good and has a very nice relaxing feel. The chowder was excellent, as was the duck salad. The salmon wrapped in filo was not so good as it was very oily. The chips were very big, fluffy but not... More

The Landlord who has just recently taken over has put new life into the establishment. Good facilities, good parking much needed in this area as the village doesn't have any other public house. Nicely kept wishing it every success.

Driving down the A120 randomly looking for a restaurant/pub on Fathers Day, and found this listing on my sat-nav POI. Drove to it, not knowing what to expect (having been turned away at other places due to the day). Came around the corner of the lane and was greeted with a lovely-looking modern terrace, fronting a gorgeous coaching house. We... More

I don't normally go out of my way to write a bad review, but this evening was one of the worst meals i've ever eaten. After ordering at 7pm our mains finally came out at 8:45pm, everything was cold, my chicken grey and SOOOO overcooked I could only eat a mouthful. Finally after complaining the manager came over, to say... 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

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 their... More
