Well this dining experience has been a long time coming as we have visited many times to sample the excellent choice of real ales but until last Thursday never dined as we always have had other options. So we met friends and we sampled the world famous Hungarian Goulash and were not disappointed. Full of flavour the portions spot on... More

We had been recommended to try the goulash at this pub, but when we visited for the first time it was full and the next day there were lots of dogs in the bar, this put me off somewhat and we went elsewhere. Whilst I appreciate it is a dog friendly pub, not everyone wants to eat surrounded by animals.... More

Not eaten here as of yet. However the menu looks really nice and the staff are really friendly. Pub quiz on Thursday nights is worth a visit too

Arrived on a Saturday lunchtime and the pub was packed as the market was in full swing. Only had a drink but the food looked excellent and folk were commenting as to how good it was. Excellent service and very friendly. Pet friendly too. Will be back to sample the speciality - goulash made to a 350 year old recipe!

We had dinner at the Dog & Gun in Keswick during our recent stay in the lake District. Tried the world famous Goulash (large size) and it lived up to expectations. We always visit this pub when we travel to the Lake District, its usually filled with interesting people and just as many dogs. Its a warm and friendly place... More

Bloke at bar gave us choice of rice or chips (masala) or mash or chips (pork) which impressed me cos they never serve chips usually. Both meals good value and very tasty, washed down with a... More
