“Good food, busy pub with good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We booked and just as well as the place was very busy (Friday night). The place had a good atmosphere. We ate in the restaurant where it was less packed than the bar and no people standing over you. The service was prompt and efficient. The food was good. My partner had the half pie and couldn’t eat it all. The pie is full of meat, so very filling but, I’m told, very nice.
If you want to eat here I’d book.

“Pie and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Had lunch at the pub, opted for 1/2 sized pie and was glad cause the portion was huge. Good atmosphere, friendly service, plenty to eat.

“Fabulous Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Lovely old building with a separate dining area. The food was really well cooked & presented. I had the "Englishman's Delight" - chicken stuffed with venison, a real treat!
There was also a good selection of wines. Good service & friendly staff made for a very pleasant evening.

“Warm and hearty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

This pub is a typically country pub with good fine ales and warm hearty food. If you looking for any of the above then try this place. Especially coming of the hills after a cold wet walk. Try the half or full cow pie. Prices aren't to bad for the centre of Keswick. Seems to get busy in the evenings, maybe reservations are a good idea or if you don't mind waiting with a pint.

“Great. wholesome pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

A good menu and some great food and good beer. Half a cow pie is probably good for most appetites! Pot roast beef was excellent as were the chicken dishes. We would definitely head here again when we are next in town. But nor sure the waistline could take two visits in a weekend! Gets busy so booking advisable
