I visit Keswick annually with friends for a break away, and always ensure that we visit this pub for lunch and a few beers. Although many places change by the month, let alone the year, thankfully The Dog And Gun doesn't appear to do so.
The decor is typical Lakeland pub, there is a warm welcome and a good range of real ale on tap, usually biased towards local microbreweries in Coniston / Hawkshead and Keswick itself. I seem to recall seeing Theakston's Old Peculiar which seems to be a house regular along with another more mainstream offering.
In terms of food, I always favour the house specialty, the Goulash, which I have always found highly satisfying and tasty. The large portion is too much for me, and I am a big eater ! The other meals always look of a similar size and quality so are no doubt worth a try too.
The only problem with this venue is that owing to its popularity you can often struggle to get a seat as many diners tend to linger over a drink or two after a meal.
