Ordered rib eye steak. It was very tender and nicely cooked. It came with chips and veg. I would have preferred mushrooms and grilled tomatoes and proper onion rings. (The ones we got were frozen). The chips and veg made it a bit dry. But the steak was nice.

We have been coming here sporadically for a long time and come all the way from Newcastle just for the food and the fantastic service. We have never been disappointed. Today was no exception and Ben behind the bar made sure myself, my husband and our 3 year old daughter were well looked after and served before the kitchen became... More

We ate in the bar which was very atmospheric with a real local country charm about the room. The food was fantastic, all be it the service was good but sporadic. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the beers, food and general menu but disappeared for long spells, obviously understaffed and trying to cover many rooms serving food.

Reminded me of work canteen ! Fat tastes awful on the chips - my gammon was a slightly strange colour and just not what we were looking forward to after a very long walk. Standard nothing to get excited about and embarrassed that somewhere in my home county serves this to tourists spending their hard earned cash ! Sorry we... More

Love.y dog friendly pub in Keswick with great food. I wasn't very hungry so had a starter of whitebait with a side order of chips, which I couldn't finish! They were scrummy though! OH had chicken leek and ham pie, which he said was delish, he ate all of it plus my remaining chips which he also thought were excellent.... More

Food is OK but like a lot of places they allow dogs in all areas and that is not good hygiene in my book

Christine B, Owner at The Pheasant Inn, responded to this review

I would like to point out that dogs are only allowed in the bar area on the tiled floor which is swept and washed every day. We have 2 dining rooms where dogs are not allowed and as a Keswick resident I would have thought you would have been well aware of this . More

We have eaten here a few times now and never been disappointed. Good hearty plateful and nice choice of Real Ale after waking the hills. Only a10 minute walk out of the town centre but if you drive, it's free road parking unlike in town. The open plan pub area is split into dining room - (bookable) and we think,... More

We visited this pub restaurant for the first time with relatives and to say we were pleased would be an understatement! I saw a stout beer on the bar, named 'Oyster', the barmaid fully and accurately described what turned out to be an excellent stout! There were a number of local bitters on tap along with the normal larger and... More
