Such a find we found this Inn via a Good Pub Guide whilst on a short break we ate here on two nights as the Food & Service couldnt be faulted. Lovely Staff who were very helpful and so friendly we loved the atmosphere and the open Fire was very welcome at the end of a busy walking day. The... More

Arrived and was excited to taste some good food, my meal was ok but my young daughters burger was pink on the inside, raw meat to a three year old is not good, informed the staff, got no apology and then they tried to charge me for that meal, won't be going there again.

We were staying for a weel in Threlkeld and ended up dining here three times. None of our visits disappointed and had some excellent food, beer and good selection of wine. Very popular at the weekend so probably worth bookinf a table for peak times. I had the sea bass with scallops and was one of the nicest meals I... More

We had Sunday lunch to celebrate a birthday. We have visited a couple of times and were very pleased on these two occasions however on this occasion we were less than impressed. I appreciate it was busy but nobody asked us if we were enjoying our meal or if we had enjoyed our meal. I had Turkey and it was... More

Despite being very regular visitors to the Lake District for the past 20+ years, we'd never actually been to this pub. We put it right this time and called in for lunch. Dog friendly in the bar, our Collie was allowed (if not made particularly welcome!). Good menu - we went for the very reasonably priced 2courses for £6.95 and... More

We have visited the Horse and Farrier many times and on each occasion the food has been extremely good, the ambience great and the service very good. It is busy and you usually need to book.

After spending a well-deserved break in the Lake District we stumbled across this excellent pub/restaurant while staying in the village of Threlkeld. My wife, two young children and I arrived at 6 o'clock on a Saturday evening hoping to enjoy an early evening meal. The restaurant was already heaving and we were fortunate to grab the last available table so... More

Although on this visit October 2014 we stayed elsewhere , we nevertheless ate there on 1 occasion and had drinks there on two nights. The drinks on the first night was... More

Decided to walk from Keswick to Horse and Farrier as we hadn't been for a while. It appears new people are working there now but our lunch was still very good indeed, with a nice glass of wine each. The bar staff were very friendly, and, also a special mention for the guy who was waiting on, very smartly dressed,... More
