We have stayed at the Highfield Hotel every year for about the last 13 years, dinner, bed and breakfast. One of the highlights has always been the evening meal, which has been of a very high standard. The Highfield's terms have changed slightly this year whereby the tariff includes a £35 allowance for the evening meal, previous years the evening... More

The food at the Highfield is excellent. There are very few, if any, real fine dining options in Keswick - but this fits the bill. The produce is both very fresh and local, and the presentation, combination of flavours and range of the menu are all really good. Obviously the restaurant belongs to the B&B which is lovely (we have... More

The restaurant is part of the hotel but also accommodates non residents. Three courses of quality served by pleasant staff who are prepared to advise on the menu options. Pleasant in their manner and accommodating to customers tastes. THE FOOD shines on the plate, steak which cuts like butter and tastes beautiful. Then take your time no rush you will... More

Because we were staying at this hotel it was a treat to eat dinner there, too. Especially with the weather a bit cool and wet, after hiking all day it is nice to clean up and just go downstairs to the lovely dining room overlooking the fells and be seated at a white tablecloth table for a delightful, creative hot...

A pre dinner drink in the bar starts the meal. Here you order your food and are called through to the restaurant when your table is ready. The food is good and the restaurant very pleasant. The price is in the higher end bracket.

Had a wonderful meal whilst staying at hotel. Canapés served in bar whilst being seated at table. Staff very attentive & friendly. Food was absolutely divine. So well presented you imagined it would be good before you tasted it but when you did the flavours were gorgeous & the beef cooked to perfection. The puddings stepped it up to the... More

The best food we have experienced in a hotel environment. The Dinner menu is either 2 or 3 courses plus coffee. There is a choice of 5/6 dishes for each course, and the menu changes daily. Breakfasts are either continental buffet or excellent cooked dishes including kippers!
