“Good Food, Bit Pricey”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Came here today for some lunch, i had a pizza which they didnt mind altering to my preference and my partner had a jacket potato. The staff were lovely and the interiour was very comfy and stylish only little bad point was very pricey and being living in keswick i know it is more expensive in this town but would definatly return again as a treat :-)

Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

After sauntering through Keswick, perusing the eatery menus, we chose 'The Lakes Bar & Bistro' and were very glad we did.

Thoroughly enjoy our meal and the ambiencence.

Would highly recommend and definitely return.

“Excellent friendly service”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We stumbled into Lakes Bar & Bistro after coming down from Skiddaw so we were starving by the time we got there. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, despite us being in full walking gear. We had the garlic ciabatta as a starter with steak burger and scampi as our main course. All the food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing (and that wasn't the hunger talking either!) plus it was delivered really quickly. Simply can't fault them.

“Excellent Burgers”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We visited twice during our most recent stay, we all had burgers (vegetarian and beef) and myself and my parents were very impressed with the food, although service was a little slow - it felt like maybe there were fewer staff present than usual.

The quality of the food is great though, as is the presentation.
