Arrived here on the 26th of November. There was roadworks _so we decided to pull off. We often visit family in this area, we have come here many times, its a glorious location and building but very grubby inside _ this time I went to the bar _ a pint of bitter and one port and Brandy _ just under...

Very good food and beer. Large portions but we couldnt eat it all. I had the guinea fowl with haggis and my wife had the venison bouginone.

The menu is interesting with three/four specials available on the days of our visit. We ate here twice and both times the pub appeared full for meals although we were told it was quiet by the staff. The food was excellent and the place has a nice atmosphere. Just what you would hope for in a Lakeland pub.

Cosy, traditional pub on the outskirts of Keswick. Often booked up in the restaurant, but what we weren't told when we rang was that they do bar meals. In any case, the bar was full when we arrived, so that wouldn't have been an option. We had meals from the specials board, so paid a bit more, but we could... More

We went on the recommendation of a friend and weren't disappointed. Excellent Cumberland sausage panini with chips and salad. Good choice of wine and beer. Will definitely return. Also prices were very reasonable

First visited the Pheasant earlier in the year and our return visit truly met our expectations. Great choice of real ale, i chose Pheasant which is 4.2 it was in superb condition. Our party of 4 had baby rack of ribs, baked camembert with, very happily, gluten free oatcakes as an alternative to conventional bread sticks, breaded garlic mushrooms stuffed... More

What a brilliant find at the top end, away from town, on Crosthwaite Road. When we walked through the door, on a chilly November evening, we were greeted by a lovely roaring fire and the friendly chit chat of fellow walkers. I went for the Beef madras with rice & naan bread and my other half went for the steak... More

Nice little pub on the fringe of Keswick town centre, Good selection of Food and Drinks reasonably priced, a very welcoming and warm feel to the place which also accommodates dogs.

Eaten here many times before and as it was our anniversary decided to go back. Food was lovely, as it always is, although could perhaps offer more vegetarian options. We arrived early as you need to, if you have a dog, you cannot reserve a table. I had ordered our food and shortly before it arrived the waitress asked if... More

I have visited the Pheasant several times for Sunday lunch and have always found it to be an excellent experience. The staff are polite, welcoming and efficient, the lounge areas comfortable, homely and warm and the restaurant well-appointed and the food excellent. I have only ever had the set Sunday lunch, but the quality is consistent, the food well-cooked and... More
