We were a party of 7 of different ages with something to please everyone. Service very friendly and efficient. Menu choices good and food served very well. We all enjoyed the salad served with mains and starters, delicious dressings.

Popped in everyday whilst staying locally and ate twice. Great atmosphere and great food but both overshadowed by the amazing staff.

How far is it from Keswick is it walking distance after a night out if not any idea how much a taxi would cost at the weekend?

Response from Jonathan R | Reviewed this property |
Wouldn't walk it after dark, great walk in the summer months takes me just under an hour. Taxis varies on time. I can get a taxi to Keswick at 7pm for around £10 and that was a 6 seater. But then at 1-2am it's about £13-15.
