Visited here with family, friends and dog. We had the full cow pie (as we saw it as a challege) ridiculously big! Packed full of meat. Great chips as well. Good hearty food here

Whilst we have eaten at The George a few times before. We usually go for the 'famous cow pie' or the equally tasty Farmhouse Pie. Last Thursday we decided to try the Steak dinner. Two dinners with chips, veg, grilled tomato and onion rings with a bottle of wine for £26. Great value for money. Food was really nice and... More

we visited here twice recently and had a meal on Fri 16 Sept. The Guinness as usual is bang on, especially after a long walk! I had the lamb shank with mash and veg and it was very good. My Mrs had the fish pie which was excellent (and a large portion), it was that good I finished it off... More

Superb! Always visit the George when I'm in Keswick. For under £7 you get a full Cambrian breakfast with tea or coffee. All freshly prepared with top quality ingredients. Evening meals are also excellent, book in advance for the restaurant and get there early if you want a bar meal. Will definitely be going back, can't wait!

The cow pie is amazing - it is HUGE and full of scrummy meat, very tenderly cooked to perfection! Sorry to any vegetarians, there are other options for you too.
