“A lovely experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

With very tired 9 month and 5 year old in tow, we needed somewhere to eat early to get both of them into bed and we decided to give the 'Lakes' a punt and we are so glad we did. The welcome was warm, we hadn't booked but were quickly shown to a table. We both had a starter and a main meal and beer my wife also had a pudding, our 5 year old had the children's menu which included a drink, main meal and ice cream. The food was scrummy and for a total bill of £35 including tip is was amazing value. Don't go fretting looking at negative reviews, give it a go, we're glad we did.

“Good steaks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

With a convention going on in town there was no table available. We tried a day later without reservation and we had more luck.
The food was great, good steak!

“Very happy customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

An evening visit with a couple of friends.
Service excellent and cod wrapped in Parma ham really tasty.
A really good atmosphere and I'm fussy!
I shall go back as I live in Keswick.

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Went there for a late night drink with friends. More a wine bar than pub. We're a bit disappointed that the two large appetizers we ordered came with olives, which they're we're out of and both were substituted with the same onions. Not a great item when hanging out with friends.

“Cute place - nice bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Stopped here for a quick drink after dinner and although we didn't eat here, the food being served did look nice! I quite liked the decor in the restaurant as well and the service at the bar was great! We popped back another night to check out their menu but decided on another place in the end.
