Traditional original pub, great atmosphere in the centre of Keswick.
Good selection of food , average prices for Keswick, Quality and service is good, always a selection of daily newspapers. there is an area outside for smokers which is nice to sit in the summer.
Best of all, there is always an extensive selection of Real Ales and the "Snecklifter" is the best pint yyou can buy anywhere,..highly reccomended.

Wonderful food, reasonably priced with friendly staff.....only drawback it is so popular you often have to wait for a table.

My partner and I ate here before we went to the theatre and thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
I sampled the Cumberland Sausage with veg and my partner had the Lamb Jennings.
Both we served very swiflty and gorgeous. The lamb was huge and looked delicious although I was not offered any!!
Enjoyed a very nice pint of Snecklifter and trolled off to the theatre very satisfied and happy.

We came back to the Bank Tavern for a meal with family over Christmas as we had ordered a Turkey etc from the local butchers. We went in on a Sunday afternoon for lunch with our party.

As a couple we ordered the Warm Crusty rolls one with a tuna filling and the other with a bacon and cheese. The both came with chips, side salad and coleslaw. The standard of food hasn't slipped. We also shared a generous portion of onion rings. Good selection of branded sauces.

The others tried the ploughmans salad platter, 16oz steak, and burgers for the children. All were very happy with their meals. I think the highlight was the steak!

Service good as always. A little pricey but on par with other places in Keswick.
