Great little pub. Sister pub over the road when this one gets busy.
Dogs welcome
Kids lived the Lasagne and a great ginger pudding. EPA beer was fantastic. Good place to end the railway walk or Blencathra mount.

Six of us booked dinner at the Horse and Farrier which was packed out at 6.30 .. Always a good sign that the food would be good and we were not disappointed. Service was quick and staff polite and accommodating. The menu was varied with unusual options. I had pork belly which was delicious but too much to finish ..though I gave it a good go. The highlight was the Colonel , a pudding described as a palette cleanser which consists of a large shot of vodka with lemon water ice and strawberries - an adult slush puppy. The bill was reasonable for the quality of the food - we all had 3 courses and a couple of bottles of wine and it came to £194.00 . We would definitely go again as everything being served to other tables looked equally delicious. Parking is difficult in the car parks but easy in the side streets and book. Lovely evening , thank you.

We popped into the Horse & Farrier after walking the Railway Walk from Keswick. As we were soaking wet from the impromptu hail storm that greeted our entrance to the village the brought our drinks to our table after they insisted we take seats in front of the fire to dry off!

A lovely country pub with a wide menu and friendly staff - who even gave us a lollipop each to help us garner the strength for the walk back in the rain! (Thank you for that, they were most appreciated!!)

We'll be back soon! :)

Another year in the Lakes and another great meal at the Horse and Farrier. We are never disappointed with this place. The steak and ale pie was up to its usual standard and the cheerfulness of the staff adds to the experience. The beer was as good as ever. We’ll be back next year!

Lovely pub which we have been to many times on our visits to the Lakes. Always made to feel very welcome.

We usually have food but this time had Sunday lunch for the first time. I had rib of beef and my wife had turkey. Both were excellent. Fresh, plentiful, local food washed down by a cracking real ales.

Highly recommended if you are in the area.
