We booked a table at the George for our anniversay meal whilst in Keswick recently and I was dying to try the famous Cow pie. I started with the black pudding tower. A dish consisting of Black pudding, smokey bacon in a light cheese sauce. It was packec with flavour, every mouthfull a delight on the palette, there was so much going on in the dish it was just mouthwaterring. My Wife had garlic mushrooms and she has these everywhere but commented it was the best she had tried for a long time. Starters despatched we had mains. Cow pie (half) for me and Hunters chicken for my Wife. My Cow pie was enourmous, a huge portion of pie filled to the brim with huge chunks of tender flavourful beef in the rich gravy. It just melted in the mouth and was accompanied with mash and vegtables. The half was more than enough for this greedy traveller and I wouldn't like to try the full portion. THe Hunters chicken was a moist chicken breast stuffed with venison pate and wrapped in smokey bacon. My wife said it was heavenly, it came with veg and homemade chips. She loved it. We wouldn't hesitate in booking again. The bill came to £40 with a pint and a glass of wine. Good value too.
