Attractive pub off the main street, Packhorse Court, no less. Accommodating staff gave swift and friendly service, the meals were hot and tasty, despite the menu being a bit tired. Beer ok. but

Walked in for a quick bite and got a jacket potato with cheese, a jacket potato and chicken and a cheese sandwich The two jackets were the worst we have ever tasted! They tasted off and covered in old oil that's been used to within an inch of its life! Avoid if you can!!!

After a day on the hills we were looking for a decent meal, the pub is clean, the service is good and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced compared to some of its competitors in the town! Definitely be going back, very good value food and very good portions! Great post mountain feeding 😊

We paid a visit to the Pack Horse in Keswick for an evening meal, and found it to be a friendly, olde workday pub, serving good beer and good food at excellent prices. It is worth a visit if you are in Keswick.

The Packhorse used to be the best pub for food in Keswick, and back in the day, every time we visited we had to book for the upstairs. Sadly, it is now average - not bad food - but on a par with everywhere else, and we were able to walk in and choose where we wanted to sit. Prices... More
