We have been staying in Threlkeld for some 27 years as much as 3 times a year and have stayed at the Horse @Farrier on a half dozen occasions. 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

We always visit this inn when we visit the Lakes as we have always been pleased with the quality and ambience on offer. This year, October 2014, we went on a Saturday @ 7pm and although the food and service was as good as ever the ambience was of an overly busy pub and was not relaxing. However we like... More

Having driven around sightseeing on a sunny Sunday morning, we stopped here for a quiet drink. All the tables were laid up for lunch but none the less the welcome was warm, so pleasant did it seem, we decided to eat as well. One course is 10.95. There was a choice of four roasts or a fish dish and the... More

We ate here two nights running while staying in the village and had a great meal both times. There were eight of us one evening and eleven the next and we were all really pleased with our meals. Great selection and all arrived together, which sometimes doesn't happen with larger groups. Great service from the staff,will definitely be returning!

Quick efficient service and a very tasty beef roast. Just wish the portions could have been slightly bigger, especially more roast potatoes (only had 2, wish I'd had 4) and veggies. Good atmosphere and the service was good and friendly.

After overestimating the duration of a fell walk, we rocked up early - just before opening time- here and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Genuine friendliness and hospitality and no trouble to serve us and make a 'milkaccino' for our two year old. Our Labrador was welcome there too. We went back for lunch in blazing sunshine... More

Our experience here earlier in the week was so good that we decided to book a meal for our last night in the lakes – to go out with a bang. As reviewed before, the pub looks and feels great. Being unadventurous I ordered the lamb again (as the previous meal was soooo delicious). The rest of the group had... More

Just returned from a weekend in Keswick and we had Sunday lunch at the Horse and Farrier. One of those things which happened by chance as Threlkeld isn't usually on our visit agenda. It's a lovely village and the meal was good. We just had a main course each (one roast beef and one roast lamb) which both had good... More

We (me and my dad) visited the Horse and Farrier for dinner on Friday 9th September 2014. The atmosphere in the pub was nice, with pleasant, smart decor. Tables are somewhat squashed in, and having only booked about an hour before eating, we had apparently been given the last available table, which was somewhat crammed in. But the fact that... More
