Not overwhelmed by the George, as many other reviewers found it. The beer selection is good - try the local ales. However, the food was not superb, as we had expected. Particularly disappointed with the cow pie, which both my wife and I found too rich and not as succulent. Thankful to those reviewers who warned against ordering a full portion. Even the half portion was more than enough. The soup was good, and so was the liver parfait, while the rump steak was just OK. Service not memorable.

We ate in The George again this week. As ever, on a cold December night, with everywhere else quiet, The George was still really busy.

We had garlic mushrooms and the black pudding in a creamy leek sauce to start, and both dishes were excellent. For mains we had the lamb Jennings, and the pork belly. The lamb was beautifully tender, and the pork came with a beautiful sticky reduced cider sauce.

Another great meal in one of Keswick's best food pubs. Great food, great service, and always a good atmosphere.

For first time arrivals in Keswick, this is a no-nonsense restaurant serving very tasty food in the right quantities for diners who have just scaled a mountain!
