Found out about this place on twitter and called in.
Burgers were huge and juicy, my BBQ burger was delicious.
Service was excellent, cold drinks on a hot day.
I'll be back and if your in Keswick or even the lakes you should make the trip.
You won't be disappointed.

We went to The Filling Station this morning after reading the reviews and it didn't disappoint!

The style is American Diner with booths indide and a good one for motorbike enthusiasts. We sat outside on the picnic benches as the weather was glorious and ordered full English and coffee.

The coffee came briskly in huge mugs (and they weren't large ones!) and the breakfast was cooked in the right time for you to know it's been cooked to order.

The food standard was excellent, and the place was dog friendly and the waitress brought out a bowl of fresh water for the dogs.

They also do 'suspend' coffee scheme so you can donate a coffee to someone without the money (homeless) at a later date.

Service was friendly and warm and toilets, restaurant itself immaculate. The price was in keeping - £6.5 for decent sized Full English with plenty of toast!

Would definitely recommend.

A real find!! Tucked away on the edges of keswick is this American diner. It's small...only a few tables and if you don't want to share you have to stand. There milkshakes are also powdered which is Shame but the food more than makes up for it. One of the best burgers I've had by far...big, tasty and well made....coupled with the sweet potato chips it was a real winner. If only they had more space and sorted the milkshakes out this would have got a 5!!

We choose here for lunch based on other reviews that we had read & we weren't disappointed. I had the A66 classic burger & my husband had the BBQ burger. Both were tasty & delicious. The fries were crisp & we had plenty of them. Will definitely bring the kids next time we are up in Keswick & it was great value.
