“Great beer and goulash”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Wonderful goulash and very very popular, have to be prepared to grab a table quick, lots of real ales to choose from, only small but worth it for the food, we always share a large bowl of goulash which makes a good value evening meal for £10

“Fantastic dog friendly pub”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Great pub! It's hard not to go in when visiting Keswick.
Staff are friendly and efficient. Food prices are reasonable and good value for money.
Dogs are very welcome and you staff are quick to make sure they can have a bowl of water.
Food is always gorgeous, the goulash is great especially [and there's a lovely veggie version too].

“Great pub”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Love this pub. It is totally dog friendly and has some great food on the menu. There isn't a lot to choose from but the food that is available is hearty and wholesome. My husband always has the goulash which comes in a standard size and a large size and when I say large I mean large! I have eaten the chicken tikka masala and also the suet steak and kidney pudding both of which are lovely. Beware tho if you are a chip fiend they don't do them! It gets very busy during the evening but people come and go from about 6 til 8 so you can invariably get a table at some point if you are prepared to wait as you cannot book.

“Goulash?”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Good beer and pub grub. Recommend the goulash, but why? Dog friendly to the point of nakedness without one!

“Hearty dinner after a day's walking”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The dog and gun's main meals were spot on, the goulash was delicious and there was plenty of it. The ales on offer were great too. I would recommend this place and will definitely return on my next visit to keswick :)
