“If you love dogs, great beer and a friendly atmosphere, this is for you!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Not eaten here so can not comment on the food however have seen enough to give this pub 5 stars! If you have a dog or not this place beats hands down any of the other pubs in keswick we have visited. It is so welcoming and friendly it is no wonder it must be one of the busiest in town, why others do not question why they are always full and offer a similar type establishment I can not imagine! It does not take a rocket scientist to realise walkers usually have a dog and to welcome them with open arms pays off. Beer is great with a wide range of real ale, its just getting through them thats the problem! Never been here and not got into friendly conversation with someone. The doggie bags are an inspiration and keeps the dogs occupied, not to mention wanting to come back lol Please do not change a thing, the perfect walkers pub, well done!

“Excellent location - perfect for home cooked food and a relax with the dog!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were in a large party so managed to pull some tables together to accomodate 16 of us with the dog! Very friendly service, the food was excellent and a real winter warmer! (goulash was delicious).

“Fab character and great for dogs!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Only went in for a drink but the menu looked really tasty and warming too. Cosy fire side seating and traditional ales.
