Called in because it was recommended to us by one of the instructors at go ape as the nicest place in Keswick to eat. Myself and 3 others were starving after a busy morning so we went the whole hog and ordered a pizza, garlic bread and 8 different tapas to share! They were all biggish portions compared to usual...

Tried this place on the recommendation of the hotel owner and we weren't disappointed. A good, but quite small, selection of pizzas and other food but very, very tasty and really well prepared. Good value, wonderful atmosphere and a great selection of accompanying beers. We had to wait a little while for a seat but not too long and it... More

On a drizzly Sunday evening we were looking for somewhere to sit and have a drink or two before our pre booked dinner (in Keswick, particularly during peak season, it's highly advisable to book for dinner - otherwise you'll be sat on a bench eating chips from a bag!). This little bright orange gem was perfect. There is a small,... More

Great place to pop into, always a fantasic atmosphere. Leffe on draught has got to be one of the best if not the best beers on tap available in Keswick. Ever friendly and fun staff, had a couple of hiccups with the orders but what the hell the food is awesome so that just makes going there an even safer... More

Recently called in for a coffee and a tea. We chose black currant drizzle cake, which was disappointing as there were no blackcurrants to be found at all.

Lovely little cafe bar away from the main bustle of Keswick we had the tapas which was great. Staff very friendly. Loads of board games so children can be kept amused whilst you have a leisurely lunch.I imagine it to be a great little bar in the evening.

Went here on Friday night for some tapas with family, here on a weekend away. Were advised to arrive early as tables can't be booked and managed to get seated fine. Can definitely tell why the place is so popular, good relaxed atmosphere and tasty food.

This cafe bar is lovely from the quaint old school desks to the quirky decor. The staff are lovely and friendly and the range of food and drink is great value for money. If you love tapas then this is the place for you. The pizzas are freshly cooked and taste delicious they are well worth the wait. There are... More
