First time visitor, for evening meal. A little dark ,quite a traditional style pub. The food we had was well presented and hot. Other meals we saw being served also looked good. Obviously the food was priced for the location. Keswick. A little over priced.

As a visitor to Keswick, I wanted to sample all the local cuisines. I had tried the proverbial meatpies and fish 'n chips so elected to give the pork shank a chance on a Saturday evening at The Packhorse Inn. I was fortunate enough to...More

Great pub, great selection of ales and drinks for those that don't like traditional ale. Food menu was excellent too, for either lunch or for an evening meal. Staff friendly and always making sure you were ok.

Staying in Keswick, stopped off at the packhorse for a drink-nice and warm but very quiet. Staff didn't seem interested, just served drink without any interaction-more interested in mobile phone!

This is our second time here and both times the food has been excellent. They offer an early bird menu on weekdays that is exceptional value for money. Couldn't recommend this place enough.

Visited 18.4.16 had the Earlybird menu excellent value. Whoever cooks knows what a chip should be crispy and well cooked. The landlady is very pleasant and helpful, dogs allowed if well behaved. Well worth a visit we will defiantly be going back.

Enjoyed a really lovely Sunday dinner, plenty of good quality meat with all the usual trimmings. Nice veg - tiny baby carrots, courgette and sugar snap peas - cooked just ever so slightly crisp. Followed up with a delicious Eton mess. The pack horse is...More

Yes it is Dog friendly in the pub area, but not in the restaurant. The owners are dog lovers, and have a haandsome boy called Ted. :)
