“Glorious Goulash”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Went to Keswick for a 3 night stay and dined on the Goulash here on 2 out of the 3 nights. Best meal I've had in years. My companion had the same dish here 20+ years ago and was amazed that it had't changed. Keep up with the great Goulash guys....not for vegetarians although they do have a non meat alternative....hmmmmmm

“Great dog friendly pub.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

This is a traditional British pub with a lovely friendly feel to it. The food and ale are good and for a pound you can buy a bag of dog treats. Despite having many dogs there they all seem to behave well.

“Yet another great visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

As always, when in Keswick I make for this pub. Excellent local ales and good food in a friendly environment. It's a no-frills pub but good at what it does and i couldn't ask for more.
Will be back next year!

“great pub, great beer and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

You must try the word famous goulash, though unless you could eat a horse stick to the small size. The food is excellent and the beer even better. here is a pub that knows what they are doing. Stick a coin in the wall and help the mountain rescue team whilst you are there. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are very welcome, the bar caters for them with doggy bags full of treats.
