“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

The restaurant is modern and the staff were friendly and efficient, My wife and I chose pork fillet with peppercorn sauce accompanied by vegetables which we enjoyed. For dessert we had sticky toffee pudding - one of the best we have eaten for some time.
We had a very pleasant evening.

“Nice find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

Wandered around Keswick looking for something to eat after a days walking on the fells, this place isn't on the main street so you may just miss it.
We were shown to a nice table in a not too cramped restaurant where there were different types of seating. We ordered drinks and food and didn't have to wait long for either, we had the roast beef dinner and my partners son had the chicken and ham pie. Both were well cooked and the vegetables weren't cooked to mush, portion sizes are good too.
The staff were great, really friendly and helpfull , add this to the good prices and we will definitely be calling in again next time we are in Keswick.
Thanks Guys :-)

“Great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

We had a lovely meal here. Beautiful decor but a very relaxed atmosphere, child and dog friendly too.
Could not fault anything about our meals, all three courses were absolutely delicious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. They provided our daughter with some crayons and a colouring book to keep her happy.
Will definitely go back here when we next visit Keswick.

“Small place, tasty food”

Cute little bistro in a small, cute town. Stay away from the pizza but steak, salad and chips were tasty.

“Dropped in for a quick bite”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

We popped in early before the Keswick Beer fest to grab something to eat. I ordered the burger and it was fine, obviously precooked and reheated meat but it was nice, it wasn’t expensive and was pretty good overall. Service was good but there were only about six other people in at the time so no rush but they were nice.

We didn’t get back that way throughout our stay but would pop back.
