The best Sunday lunch in Keswick! The rotisserie chicken is always perfectly cooked. Always heaving for Sunday lunch but so worth it, they have some big tables near the fire which are great for going with the whole family. Lovely drinks and friendly staff.

Came to the Golden lion in Keswick for lunch today! All our meals were lovely, steak and ale pie is enormous, 1/2 chicken was succulent. Children’s meals were delicious, would recommend.

Stopped here for lunch while wandering round Keswick, it was nice, pizza was nice, nothing too much to write home about. It might be different on an evening, but it was slightly cold, not much of an atmosphere, didn't really want to stay for another...More

We came on Sunday and despite being busy everyone was so friendly and accommodating! Going out of their way to deal with my dietary requests made me feel like family! The food was great the kids actually finished everything, we will definitely be back!
