Casual dining at Keswick Hall

Villa Crawford is the name of the original house at Keswick Hall and offers indoor and al fresco dining. The menu is casual and the food quite good, as is the service. A good place for lunch.

Great lunches and bar and amazing views of the golf course and infinity pool. Their new wine cellar is a treat!

Risotto & other dishes seemed heavy. Very personable staff but our waiter repeatedly forgetful of tasks he offered to do.

We availed ourselves of vast quantities of mojitos and Bloody Marys from Villa Crawford over 2 days of lounging by Keswick's infiniti pool. Each was excellent (and effective).

Terrific food, excellent service, great drinks. Always feel at home and well cared for. Food is sourced locally for the most part and prepared with care. Good vegetarian options and lovely local meats. Drinks are thoughtfully blended, and a great selection of liquor, wines and beers. A bit expensive, and portions are moderate, but very much with the money and... More

We have had several disappointing experiences at this multi-restaurant facility. Of all weeks, we thought restaurant week would excel but we were so wrong. Half portions! A "cup" of soup was actually no larger than 1/3 cup in a small four-inch tiny "bowl," costing $10! A meat dish that was undercooked when we asked for cooked through. An entree salad... More

Last fall, I brought a colleague, to Villa Crawford, for lunch. Over priced, guests, pushing about to get to the serving table, the staff, were novices, the view, a construction site. Oh, bring back, Dean Andrews!

Visited Keswick Hall this week for lunch. Food was excellent. We were 3 vegetarians in the group. The chef took extra effort to accomodate our needs. Excellent Potato gratin and excellent selection of salads. Amazing experience

At the end of lunch here, my husband said, “That was an inexpensive meal.” He liked the hot entrees: tender pork loin and pasta in Alfredo sauce, “Italian macaroni and cheese”. The Caesar salad had fresh anchovies. The cold buffet items were high quality, and included a choice of 7 desserts—all you could eat. We had a lunch buffet equal... More
