Had an afternoon in the lakes and fancied going for some early dinner - trying to find somewhere that serves meals all day on a Tuesday isn't easy but we came across this one and the menu looked good. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly waiter who served us throughout. He was very polite and offered his... More

First weekend in September we was in the Lakes for a weekend away. We had brought our two big dogs with us and we was struggling to find somewhere that we would be comfortable taking the dogs inside to eat. Well I am glad we found the Horse & Farrier as I couldn't have asked for anything better. While parked... More

We booked the cottage for a family birthday weekend with our family in the area. We drove 200 miles to be told that we couldn't have it as the kitchen wasn't finished and it was very damp. We wanted to know why he hadn't called us before we left for our long journey. No offer of alternative accommodation. Gave us... More

My wife and I dined here one evening in early September, whilst taking a short break in the northern Lakes. Located in the village of Threlkeld just off the A66 Keswick to Penrith road, the Horse and Farrier has an 'olde worlde' atmosphere (uneven, tiled floor, low ceilings, wooden beams, large fireplace etc). Its popularity as an eating establishment can... More

We had a delicious meal in delightful surroundings. The staff were very attentive and understanding of our 2 little people , One of whom did not wake up until it was time to leave, so she missed her child portion of ice cream! The place was very full but we were served very quickly and everything was to our liking.... More

Clearly only interested in the food side of the Business. Not particularly welcoming. We called in for an early evening drink to find the pub 1/3 full but all tables laid for dinner with reserved signs on the tables. We had to ask the maître'd who found us a small table for 30 minutes. We tried again at about 1030... More

For the past 10 years we had been taking her every week for lunch at The Horse and Farrier.She absolutely tefused to go anywere else. Unfortunately at the age of 94 she passed away in May... More

We were banished to the annex across the road. Our room was above the kitchen, smelly, hot and noisy until the wee hours. The "en suite" was possibly the smallest I've ever encountered. All the junior staff were lovely by the management somewhat snotty.
