Just popped in for a beer after a long walk , they let me in with my very dirty springer spaniel and put me in quiet spot in corner. Must admit if I'd have known how nice inside I would not have gone in but they couldn't have made me more welcome. Just had a pint or Peroni and bag... More

Very attractive and clean Pub. Friendly and courteous service. Above average pub food. Nice starters of seared scallops followed by sea bass fillets. Good range of dishes on menu and also some specials available. Would recommend booking as with most of the best lake district establishments.

Called in here for lunch before going for a walk. This is a beautiful old pub in a charming village and I have to say the the fish and chips I had were the nicest I have ever eaten. The pub has an excellent of beers and the Jennings Sneck-lifter was just perfect.

During a camping trip to Keswick (well, Burns Farm just up the road really) we decided to have a little wander on our first evening after pitching up and feeling like we deserved a beer, and the Horse and Farrier was what we found! What a little hidden Gem!! As soon as we walked into this country pub we knew... More

Having enjoyed lunches here in the past we looked forward to our meal here. But while the gammon/egg/chips dish was good, the smoked haddock and egg was let down by stodgy, dry mash - perhaps microwaved - and flavourless parsley sauce. Somewhat compensated by the pleasant surroundings and good beer, but we won't be going back to eat.

Great welcome, very pleasant staff, good menu with a wide but not mind bogglingly extensive choice, good food, good atmosphere and good beer - what else is there to say?

On our return from an 8 mile walk across Morecambe Bay with the Queen's Official Guide, this was a great place to stop on our way home. We were very warmly welcomed by very happy and pleasant staff. Keith is an absolute star and looks after his customers very well. My husband ordered a salad but was told that salads... More
