We had lunch here with our 2 children a few years ago after a walk from Keswick. It was new years eve and the staff really didn't want us there for a late-ish lunch as they were getting ready for the big event in the evening. So we thought we would try again on Easter Saturday after the same walk... More

Having stayed here with some fellow golfers and been served excellent food, I decided to take the family for an evening meal. Kids enjoyed food off the kids menu, however we were told the kids could have virtually anything off the main menu as a half portion. Adults food from starters to deserts were again excellent.

Too rushed, felt as though they wanted our table as soon as we finished, very little time between courses, nowhere to sit afterwards.

Great little pub. Sister pub over the road when this one gets busy. Dogs welcome Kids lived the Lasagne and a great ginger pudding. EPA beer was fantastic. Good place to end the railway walk or Blencathra mount.

Six of us booked dinner at the Horse and Farrier which was packed out at 6.30 .. Always a good sign that the food would be good and we were not disappointed. Service was quick and staff polite and accommodating. The menu was varied with unusual options. I had pork belly which was delicious but too much to finish ..though... More

We popped into the Horse & Farrier after walking the Railway Walk from Keswick. As we were soaking wet from the impromptu hail storm that greeted our entrance to the village the brought our drinks to our table after they insisted we take seats in front of the fire to dry off! A lovely country pub with a wide menu... More

Another year in the Lakes and another great meal at the Horse and Farrier. We are never disappointed with this place. The steak and ale pie was up to its usual standard and the cheerfulness of the staff adds to the experience. The beer was as good as ever. We’ll be back next year!

Booked a table for four of us for Sunday Lunch, lovely country pub with real fire very lovely atmosphere. We ate in the Bar area as we had our Westie Dog with us. We received good service and our meals were excellent. We will visit again the next time we are back in the lakes.
