Had a lovely meal here, the place was really busy, we did have a wait for the food, which my really hungry active toddler didn't agree with!
But the food did make up for the wait, the Lamb Tagine was to die for!
The pub is really charming with a lovely homely atmosphere, the staff were really friendly, we will definatly return, (hopefully without the kids lol) if your in Keswick defiantly worth a visit, also worth booking in advance x

We ate here twice this week. Apart from a mess up on the timing of our booking for the second evening, which was resolved quite quickly with good grace, we were very happy on both occasions. Really crowded as it was Easter week, the staff were worked pretty hard but they coped well with good humour. The menu is fairly basic pub restaurant although quite extensive. The whitebait were excellently cooked, the Cumberland Sausage was a very full plate, the Haddock special an unusual combination of fish and risotto. Pricing fairly average compared to southern rates, high for further north but reasonable for Keswick.

Had a great meal out on Good Friday. It was incredibly busy but we took this as a good sign (we had booked in advance). The service was excellent and the food equally good. My husband had the steak and ale pie and I had the cumberland sausage and mash - both were delicious! It was fantastic value for money for the quality of the food that we ate. Would definately recommend to anyone in the local area.

We visited on Good Friday and our party of 9 were not able to book and had to use the bar area which is first come first served. This was fine, a little cramped with the tables pushed together, but this didn't spoil anything. Menu was good and seemed to cater for everyone. i was hoping for local lamb with it being easter which was nit on offer which was a shane. I opted for the Cumberland sausage which was local and tasted lovely.

Free wifi was good for the kids iPads and the taster of 3 real ale's was a hit. I'd recommend this pub but get there early to eat as its popular. This has to be a sign of a good pub!

Had a delicious meal on Friday night. Liked it so much we went back on Saturday night!! Roaring fire (needed in the freeeezing March weather we are having lately!) Friendly staff, who found us a table on Friday night despite not having booked. We booked for the Saturday night and the waitress even remembered us and asked how our walk had gone that day. The penne pasta mushroom/aubergine bake was very tasty and filling with a big side of veg and choice of new potatoes or chips. Hubby had Goulash which he devoured! I chose scampi and chips on Saturday which was a huge portion, but still managed a clean plate as it was so delicious. We made room for lemon posset and coffee which rounded off a pleasant dining experience. Also dog friendly in the bar area. Will definitely eat here again.
