Mine and my sister’s absolute favourite place to eat when we visit Keswick. She loves the freshly-made pizzas and i always order the nachos with pulled pork. It can get super busy in here and sometimes hard to get a seat. Everytime we have eaten...More

Lovely pizza and tasty tapas in a place with a great atmosphere. The cocktails are delicious too. To get a table at peak times you have to be lucky as it’s a tiny place but worth the wait. Friendly, helpful staff. Great coffee!
