“Vert Disappointed and let down”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Having made a booking on Sunday 5th May for Saturday 25th May at 6.00pm. I telephoned the s Horse and Farrier within half an hour and asked to change the booking to 8.00pm. I was told no problem and that they looked forward to seeing us on the 25th. I had also asked if we could take a small cake to the restaurant as it was our friends birthday. We arrived at 8.00 pm on the 25th only to be told that our booking was at 6.00pm. I informed the owner that I had telephoned to change the time, but she said that there was nothing she could do, although there were spare tables in the bar. This was the Horse and Farriers reservation error, and I would have thought that the owner would have attempted to resolve the situation
However we found a great little restaurant in Keswick called " A Different Taste" and the staff were very accommodating and the food was very good

“THAT GOOD I INVITED MY FRIENDS”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We visited in January for my Birthday treat and previously to that in October for Hubby's. On both occasions we had great service, great food and a relaxing stay. So I arranged to meet for a friends catch up, and was not disappointed.
We eat out a lot, in fact its a serious hobby and this is THEE PLACE IN CUMBRIA.If we lived closer we would be there weekly.

“Most Enjoyable”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Very pleasant environment, catering well for the range of people who visit the area, with provision made for dogs, cyclists, hiers and the general public. Excellent service and a very comprehensive menu. Food quality was very good and this pub gives good value for money. Would have no hesitation in returning.

Excellent meal and staff very pleasant and efficient despite being very busy on a Saturday night with tables being reset and filled up again. Never felt rushed with our friends.

“Friends & family”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Having been introduced to the delights of the Horse and Farrier by a friend, a return trip was arranged for a family birthday a few weeks later. On both occasions the food and service did not disappoint. Would recommend.
