We made sure to have a drink here every night during our stay in Keswick - very efficient staff and great atmosphere if you don't mind it busy. It seems like a really popular place with locals, walkers, tourists and dogs! It was busy every...More

Popped in for a lovely meal. Service great and good sized portions. Tikka masala particularly tasty. Loved the fact that dogs were welcome as well

Nasty. Chicken Sunday roast. Awful. Rubbery chicken. Deep fried roast potatoes. Watery gravy. Best thing on the plate was a carrot. Won’t be back. £10.95 wasted. Not impressed.

First visit, despite hearing loads of good things about this pub we left very disappointed. Food was poor, especially the vegetable goulash. Served to our table with a still frozen dumpling in the centre and frozen food underneath. Clearly microwaved. Returned it for a reheat,...More

After staying in Keswick for a few nights tried each night to fit a family of 7 in, finally succeeded as this was a very busy pub. It was worth the wait, the food was delicious and the goulash was really good and a nice...More

Keswick has quite a bit of parking space although it is chargeable 24/7. Main car parks are both about 250 - 300 metres away to the North and South of the main Street. the pub does not have its own parking. the car park... More
