“Fawlty Towers.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Poor. Arrogant and rude attitude of landlord was matched by service of some staff. The chef in particular. Fortunately for Keswick there are better places to spend your money.

Reviewed October 2, 2012

Arrived in keswick,fri 28th sept at t-time and headed for the bank tavern as we had been told of its great food and local beer (jennings cumberland ale) and the beer was spot on but we were very dissapointed at the food portions and to be honest there were more like childs meals.What a shame as food was nice,Buttt there is a lot of better pubs and eaterys in this fab town!!!..

“A Proper Pub !”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Wouldn't dream of visiting Keswick without having a pint (or two) of Jennings Ale. Usually Sneck Lifter - a favourite of mine - but sometimes Cumberland Ale. A real, proper pub with great beer and pretty good food too.
