Visited Keswick for a friends 60th birthday and he booked a table for eight of us on Saturday 23rd July. The Restaurant hit the spot for the whole party and everyone was more than happy with the choices on offer. I tried the famous cow pie, not the whole one, and it was delicious. In fact as a pie lover... More

After a long day walking, we decided to have Sunday Lunch at The George, after it was recommended to us. And what a great recommendation that was! The Beef was melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and the Yorkshire pudding was huge (and amazing!) All in all, definitely a great choice if you like your Roast Beef on a Sunday.

Lovely place, friendly staff and tasty food. Word of warning, don't order the whole cow pie unless you have a really huge appetite!

We visited the George twice for Lunch and twice for Dinner in our fortnights stay in the Lakes. Suffice to say we weren't disappointed on any occasion, so hence the return visits! Lunchtime was really good with a 2 for 1 menu that was both really nice and super value. Dinner in the evening was likewise excellent, with a varied... More

We stayed in a twin (family) room on a three day B&B break. The room was clean and comfortable with a very tiny TV. The George is a very busy pub and gets quite full in the evenings. We had our evening meals in their restraurant. Parking is limited. Our car faced the the air outlet from the kitchen which... More

Just back from a weekend stay. Very comfortable rooms, lovely comfy beds, nice bathroom with white fluffy towels. Breakfast was superb and red hot. Did not use restaurant in evening as visiting relatives but on our return it was very busy and if breakfasts are anything to go by it's not surprising. Would definitely stay here again.

Me and my husband dropped in for lunch we were happy that they were doing a meal offer for 2, the meals were not the best but for the price it was OK for what we received

I go to Keswick several times a year and over the years I have dined at The George many times and have always been satisfied with both the service and quality of the meals - that is until now. The service from the waiting staff remains very good but my meal on this occasion was very very poor - not... More
