Just returned from a short break in Keswick and made a point of visiting the Lakes Bar again after a wonderful meal there back in August. This time we took our son as well as our dog and were all made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we walked in. The food was perfect and would highly recommend the Firecracker pizza despite its heat !! My wife and son had the spaghetti carbonara and were full of praise for their meals. We even managed room for chocolate fudge cake, strawberries and ice cream and cheese and biscuits, again all superbly presented. Great atmosphere in a great location,we will be back !

Went for a return visit to this bistro after visiting for the first time last year. Very pleased we returned as it has maintained it's high standards.

We had what we both felt were amongst the best pizzas we have tasted.

The service was good and very friendly and we will certainly return on our next visit to Keswick.

Whilst staying in the area we visited twice. The food was very good and good value, but the service on both occasions was disappointing.

Food was ok, although didn't really have chance to enjoy as felt quite unwelcomed by what appeared to be regular customers. Assume it was because we have a 2 yr old boy, it was 6:30pm so not as if we were eating late!!! Also felt that staff could have made more of an effort to make us feel welcomed and been more interested/interactive with our little boy. Missed an opportunity to create some ambience as watching felix the austrian chap jump 24 miles to earth, however had the tv on silent and you could hear a pin drop!! Disappointing experience as quite clearly this place gets good reviews, however should take a leaf out of the restaurant over the road who were far more welcoming and child friendly the following night. Can't comment on the food as cant remember eating as the whole experience was so frustrating.

This seems a popular spot for the Earl Grey walking brigade and locals alike. We went here for breakfast and plumped for the 'Full Monty' which worked out more reasonable as it included tea/coffee etc. The food was plentiful, well presented and of good quality. The service was good. We found the bistro to be very clean inc the loos...
Highly recommended, and will use again when in the area.
