“Amazing country pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I spent a lovely weekend at this pub staying in their holiday let just over the road. We ate here on the Friday and Saturday, and the food was great on both occasions. Breakfast was also fab with plenty of choice.
The pub is really cosy with great open fires. It is also dog friendly.
However, the best thing about the pub is the staff. Never have I been made to feel so welcome and the owner was absolutely lovely. They couldn't do enough for us.
I would not hesitate to return.

“Weekend in the Northern Lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We stayed one night at the Horse & Farrier in the Cottage. This is dog friendly and was perfect for our needs. The cottage was nicely furnished and very comfortable. We had all our meals in the pub section of the Horse & Farrier - which allows the dogs to sit under the table while you eat. The food was amazing, lunch, dinner and a great English breakfast. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had two great walks which rounded off a truly fantastic weekend. Highly recommended!

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We have spent two holidays in Keswick this year and each time have incorporated an evening meal at the Horse and Farrier. This time we had the Curry option and it was very tasty and substantial. The staff are very friendly and even remembered us from June. Although it was a Monday in October it was very busy. We tend to eat early so had not booked (not a problem) but you should consider booking if eating after say 6.00pm as clearly its very popular. The food was very hot and served promptly - the beer was also very good!

“Great food, big portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

As some of the previous reviews have said, The Horse and Farrier can be somewhat expensive. However, the portions are large and very well cooked. This is the third time we have eaten here this year. The service has always been very good and the beer, well kept. I don't have any complaints, if I was being awkward I would say the portions can be on the large side for the smaller eaters. But you can hardly mark someone down for that! We will certainly come again.
