Second visit to Keswick, second to the Pack Horse.
Staff are friendly food is nice and the Guinness is great however, the menu is limited and does not seem to change and is exactly the same as when we visited last year and unless an extraordinary coincidence, nor has the specials board.
Would happily visit here again but would like to see varied menu if only something different on the specials.
Well worth a visit.

Thank Andy C

Need to source better quality meats, not local produce used as you would expect from a "home cooked food" pub.
Change suppliers!!!

I have just returned from a family weekend in Keswick with my girlfriend and 7 year old son and it lived up to all our expectations.
We had the weather on our side and made the most of the great outdoors.
When it came to food, we came across a gem called the Pack Horse Inn.
The place had a fantastic atmosphere and great mix of locals, walkers, families & a couple of friendly dogs.
We were went there firstly for dinner on Saturday and we were greeted by James shown to our table.
It seems to be a family run pub and you could really notice that in the quality of the food and the friendly service alike.
I went for the fish & chips and my girlfriend had the chicken, hammock and leek pie of the specials menu, while our son choose the fish fingers of the children menu.
Ou meals were outstanding, the chips were to die for ( and i managed to finish every single one of them).
The cask ale went down a treat too.
After an action packed Sunday we returned for dinner before setting off.
As our 1st visit was faultless we trusted them enough to order steaks, and boy did they deliver! Two 10oz rumps, cooked ( and more importantly rested) to a perfect medium, homemade peppercorn sauce...and more of the crunchy chips.
It is a very reasonably priced pub with great homemade food and friendly staff.
We recommend it & we will definitely come again when in the area.

There is always an excellent atmosphere what ever time of day you visit be it afternoon or evening. The staff are very friendly there is an excellent choice of beers. The live music is always very good giving an even better atmosphere.

Don't be put off give it a go, its just off the central area where it can be difficult to get a seat to eat at times and I must admit that we entered with some trepidation. However we had a great meal, good sized portions and the cost was quite a bit less than most of the other local establishments, get a rump steak, mine was perfect
