“Post theatre meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Atmosphere great, staff very friendly & helpful, food brilliant. Two of our party had risotto, one the steak & I had the sausage & mash we all enjoyed our meals. We also enjoyed our desserts. We passed this cafe bar & thought it looked interesting so booked - we weren't disappointed.

“Excellent, well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, amazing choice of beers and a very good choice of wines. The menu is more quality than quantity, and all the better for it. The food was superb, and the service was excellent. We went back twice in a week, such was the impression it left on us. If you also have a canine friend, they will not turn them away. Well behaved dogs are allowed in one part of the restaurant, so everyone is catered for. We were very impressed.

“Fantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

What can I say,
The girls serving we're so friendly and quick!
The food was what I would expect in a fine dinning restaurant!
And the atmosphere was so cosy for a modern bar!
Would RECOMEND to anyone.

“Bad Customer Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Had a day out in Keswick (live not far away and visit regularly) and decided that from the outside this cafe bar looked interesting, the menu also had a good choice so went in for lunch. It wasn't busy but tables hadn't been cleared and after 15 minutes of sitting at a table we still hadn't been offered a drink or our order taken so we decided that we weren't prepared to wait any longer and went elsewhere. We weren't in a particular hurry but didn't expect to have to wait so long for any kind of service.

“Welcome addition to Keswicks restaurant choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Saturday night dinner - the menu has a limited choice of starters and mains always a good sign as long as the menu gets changed frequently ! There is a good selection of draught beers which is unusual for a restaurant.
Food was good , interesting dishes without going too exotic and nicely presented. Don't expect huge helpings this is quality not quantity.
Deserts were probably the highlight - again small selection of really home-made deserts unlike anything you will find in Keswick.
Nice atmosphere and good to see the place fill up after the food ended with locals/theatre staff.
It is not a cheap place to eat especially for a bar/restaurant , the fixed price menu across the road will be cheaper, but will be returning and a welcome addition to the top-end dining places in Keswick.
Have not yet tried the lunch or early dining dining options.
