Comfortable & cosy with great food. Gets busy very quickly but I can see why! A great little place for a cheeky drink & bite to eat. A hidden gem worth stumbling upon :)

Great for fresh food, ciabatta, pizza etc. Nice atmosphere with added sarcasm (all good). Popular and busy so you may struggle for a seat.

We came here on the last day of our short break to Keswick by recommendation of our hosts and it did not disappoint. With my personal favourite choice of food (pizza and tapas) on the menu there was plenty of options. I opted for 4...More
