“Really happy experience down to good service and value for money.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Enjoyed a relaxed afternoon dinner. We were served by at least four different people and all were very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. The four of us eat and there was not a scrap of food left. Vegetables were done just as I like them, excellent!
One of the tracks on the back ground music was excellent 'Yesterday' the others were . . . .and too loud.

“Recent meal at the Horse and Farrier inn, Threlkeld, Keswick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Staying at a hotel in Keswick for a couple of days with some friends of ours from South Africa, we decided to venture out looking for a pub or restaurant, rather than the hotel restaurant and what a wise choice we made choosing the Horse and Farrier.
The waitress was so helpful, espescially for myself requiring a gluten free diet, that was sorted between the waitress and the chef and grateful I am to them.
The food was excellent along with the service and ambience of the place.
We would definitely call again when in the area.

“Horse and Farrier Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Fantastic pub and restaurant, family friendly,lovely food whilst over-looking Blencathra. Brought my Granddad and Fiance here and they both had a great time. The food is plentiful and always delicious, loved the scampi and then the key lime pie (scrumptious!) Friendly staff and a good lunchtime menu that is reasonably priced to suit most budgets. great for fell walkers to refresh and rejuvenate!

A traditional Lakeland pub and restaurant, with beautiful views over looking Blencathra. Food is plentiful and delicious everytime I have came here. Family friendly and always clean, with friendly staff.

“Disappointing choice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Went with friends as usual when in Keswick. Good, friendly service. Sadly when my roast turkey meal arrived, compared with the roast beef meal, I wished I'd chosen beef. The turkey tasted like it had been reheated, it looked substantial till I found the meat was on top of stuffing and mash potato. There were 2 small dishes of vegetables between the four of us, which was rather meagre to say the least. The gravy, we all felt, was a bit peppery too. At least it left room for dessert!

Two courses were £14.50.

Just a small point, the background music was radio 2. Bit irritating!
