I have visited the George with my wife during an anniversary weekend away and the food was lovely. We were in Keswick recently on a family holiday so decided to eat out here again, we were not disappointed.

Met up with two friends who I used to work with to have a meal and a catch up on what everyone busy with. The staff greeted you with a warm welcome even though it was very busy. We had a very good meal and several drinks. The price was very reasonable and will definitely go again with family.

What can I say, that pie is just amazing. Perhaps a bit pricey just short of 18GBP but its a must do when coming to Keswick. Ive attempted to replicate this monster at home, its not possible. I am going to have to kidnap the chef..!!!! lol. Keep making it, its legendary. thankyou

Happened to connect with another friend who was travelling and she recommended The George. When we asked about it at our hotel, the guy behind the desk said "Going for Cow Pie are ya?" If only I had known what that meant! Unbelievably good. Really pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff (best joke when the bar keep asked where we were from...... More

The signature dish is the Cow pie (beef) or the Farmhouse Pie (chicken & ham) in either half portions - enough for most mortals or the full portion - only to be undertaken with caution. The George does much else and the pulled pork burger looks amazing but their pies are renowned both for the amount of meat in them... More

Visited the lakes frequently every year for more than 45 years and Keswick is a sort of base for us. never once been in the George until august 2016. we were really impressed with the food, service and value and in particular the commitment to Gluten Free needs. excellent place, will eat there more often from now on.

Thank andy s
