Went here on a golf trip and this has to be the perfect venue. Lots of real ale and 8 Cow Pies please. Some of us were content with the junior version but two took on the full cow pie challenge. There was one clear winner who cleared his plate with his challenger simply beaten into submission.

The meals were well presented and the chips were delicious best I had tasted for a while, I had scampi and along with the chips it came with a lovely... More

Want a challenge? Try the cow pie! Full of lean tasty beef in shortcrust pastry, wow! Food great, really friendly staff and a comfortable place to be. Really good value for money too. Shame we found it on our last night in Keswick! Lovely end to the holiday though.

Stayed here for 2 nights and even though our room was located direct over the pub the noise wasnt too bad and we slept very well. Our room was very spacious, the bathroom as well and the George is located right in the center of Keswick. In the evening the pub was crowded and we were lucky to get a... More

Always excellent. Staff are very chatty and friendly. Food is filling, good value and tasty. Will definitely recommend the restaurant .The Cow Pie seems to be their most popular dish. But on this occasion I chose the Farm House Pie. They also do a great Lunch Deal

If you want a taste of old(e) timey England during your visit to the Lake District, stay at The George. it creaks, it leans, some rooms are super hot, other rooms are cold, doors don't always close, and the layouts of rooms and bathrooms can be a little head scratching. Yet it all seems to work. Fancy and new, this... More

We stayed in room 5 which was right above the bar. It was quite noisy so if this could be a problem, maybe ask for a room on the top floor. It is an old building so the floors were creaky and not level - this isn't a complaint, just an observation. The bed was comfortable and there was enough... More

We decided to try this based upon reviews but what a mistake! The atmosphere is fine. We were put in the larger dining room. However I had a steak -- it was very thin and overdone, not good at all. In fact, I don't know why they asked how I wanted it cooked. My husband had the Gammon Steak, and... More

The room and hotel were clean and tidy. Very friendly and helpful staff. Old windows stop little noise, we were mid-week so fairly quiet but any weekend noise would be heard. Road outside was quiet at night. Breakfast and dinner excellent with large number of options. We were 1st floor and floorboards above creaked but that was the only noise... More
