“Very good but a little more expensive than some...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We had lovely Mussels and a Lamb Shank here. Apparently it has new owners and they are obviously trying to create something a little different to the other dog friendly pubs in Keswick.

“Lovely food and good beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

A group of us were visiting Keswick for the weekend and a few of us ended up here on Saturday night. I must admit, although a regular visitor to Keswick, I had not been in The Pack Horse for some years. As you can see from previous comments, it has now been taken over by a local man and his wife. We enjoyed the beer and atmosphere so decided to book our group in for a meal on Sunday. The dining area is set out over two levels, mezzanine style, and feels very open. There was a good range of food on offer – there being a regular menu, a bar menu, a children’s menu and, as it was a Sunday, a roast was on offer. Between us, I think we ordered from all four menus and were very pleased with the quality of food and service. The lamb shank was particularly popular amongst the group and I had the Chicken Supreme which was lovely and moist and the sauce was gorgeous! The children enjoyed their pizzas in particular, and the colouring books etc., that the waiting staff brought over kept them entertained when they had finished. We will definitely be visiting again.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

This pub has it all. Great service, hard working and friendly staff, lovely food at the right price and a great selection of beers. The pub is under new management - and from some of the older reviews I have read on here it sounds as though the change was long overdue! Don't be put off by some of the older reviews as I was blown away by my recent visit to the Pack Horse Inn and I am sure it won't be too long before I visit again!
