“Fab food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

After a days walk we were ready for some good pub grub and that is exactly what we got. Our starters were beautiful as were our mains. Wine very nice too. The famous Cow Pie and Farmhouse Pie were are a must if you eat at The George!! Staff friendly.

“You won't leave hungry!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This place serves seriously big food. 8/10 lads on a stag do, most of them rugby players, and not one finished the Cow Pie half portion.....or even dared to try a dessert. The pie is the star, venison casserole was good, but not great. Great range of Jennings beers, staff were super-friendly and very efficient and the atmosphere in both the pub and dining room was buzzy and welcoming. Value for money was excellent and I'd definitely return to try the cow pie challenge!

“Great pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Ate here twice during our recent visit to Keswick. Good, hearty pub food. We had the lamb and fish cakes on our first night, followed by the venison burger and mussels the second night. All very tasty. Good selection of ales and a reasonable selection of wine by the glass. Enjoyed sitting in the bar area/snug with an open fire. Friendly, efficient service. The pub had a nice atmosphere with a mix of locals and tourists. Would certainly go back if ever in Keswick again.

memorable food, truly delicious cow pie - too much to eat sadly although we tried very hard. would have liked to have tried the desserts but the Cow Pie finished us off!
