After eating at The George on previous visits to Keswick we booked again for a return trip, all hyped up for a lovely meal, starters and initial service where excellent, although I would suggest avoiding putting whole cloves of Garlic in the Cambembert! I ordered the flat iron steak off the Chef specials and another guest ordered the stuffed chicken,... More

We ate here twice with friends, Once the men had cow pie and you have never seen a pie so big, they had half and struggled to eat it so don't even attempt a full one! It tasted good and they were so full they did not have room for dessert. We went on a Thursday also and it was... More

We have been to the George several times now and have never been disappointed the gluten free menu is first class . We have just been tonight and the gluten free fish and chips were the best I have ever tasted. Thank you so much.

Lovely food and staff. There was 8 of us in the group all having different orders and it was all served together and all cooked to perfection. Being a vegetarian, there was a good choice of food options. I can highly recommend the portebello mushroom pie. Lovely evening had by all thank you :)

Decided to try this establishment after a perusal of the menu which seemed interesting and gave the impression of offering a tad more innovation and variety than the usual suspects one finds on a typical pub food menu. Alas this was not the case. My partner ordered Queeny scallops as a starter, I opted for the "Chefs Special" Ham Terrain.... More

Needed a B & B in Keswick for a long weekend and The George ticked all the boxes. Comfortable good-sized room, pleasant staff, plentiful breakfast. One morning we needed to be out before breakfast was due to be served but they didn't mind - welcomed us into the dining room and offered to make coffee or tea for us while... More
