The staff where so knowledgeable about the area, the food which they served (including the heritage of the menu) and the alcohol on offer. Brilliant pub and I would recommend it to anyone who was visiting Keswick. Best heritage pub in the lakes!

Visited on Saturday evening and had a quick bite to eat which was very nice. The bar staff were also very friendly and the place had an overall welcoming and friendly atmosphere.

We visited twice during our weekend in Keswick. A busy vibrant pub with brilliant staff. The rhubarb gin with cinnamon & orange as recommended by the barman was delicious. We only ate soup but this was very tasty with lovely bread. Would definitely return.
