Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Incredible burgers, fries and their own sauces. The Garlic Mayo and Chipotle Mayo were both very good! Second time eating here now, and would say this is a must for anyone visiting Keswick or surrounding areas.

Came with family for a birthday meal. Really enjoyed it. The staff were particularly attentive and it had a nice relaxed vibe. Burgers were well cooked. I had the chicken with salad option and again it was well coked and just a bit different. We...will return again for sure.More

Can’t comment on the food, but the cocktails we had were lovely (pear Collins and a margarita), staff were friendly too and the atmosphere was nice. Worth a visit.

One of the liveliest places in town, the line to get in was fairly long, but well worth rhe wait We were lucky, the next open table was on the heated porch in the back, but inside would have been okay too. Good menu, backed...up by good food, good service, and very reasonable prices. A fun place for a relatively informal dinner, definitely better than the average pubs nearby.More

We visited The Round on a wet Saturday in February, it’s a very busy place but we soon got a table and even better dogs are allowed too! We had the burgers and fries, and which were super tasty. We will definitely return next time...we are in the area, and maybe try some more of the cocktails!More

Amazing!!! I understand you can often have to queue and I can completely see why! I was fortunate to get straight in, with a seat in the window. My little dog was made to feel very welcome, which was lovely. The burger was AMAZING!!!!!! So...so good!!! And I was stuffed!!! Lovely cocktails too! Definitely recommend this place. Great, simple concept that they do really well!More

We got lucky as there was no queue on the evening we walked past. Got a table straight away. First server didn't know what the guest ale was and foozled his answer rather than saying he didn't know and would find out. Second server was...spot on. She offered a vegan roll when I asked for vegan cheese. Food cooked to order so a short wait. Table tops have games linked to The Round - a feat of summits. Burgers were delicious and hot. Tried crinkle and sweet potato fries - both good. Yummy homemade sauces, especially the garlic mayo.More

I can see why there is always a line! We enjoyed our lunch so much, we came back later for dinner. The food is well-cooked, imaginative combinations and names, and the service is excellent. Would definitely go back for a casual meal.

Although the place didn’t take booking we had read the reviews and menu and took a chance. Got seared straight away in the Easter holidays at about 5:30. Atmospheres was fab and the menu had too many nice things to choose from I opted for...the special without a bunch of, the salad was so tasty I felt sorry for anyone who had just gone with boring bread. My husband had the Ruben and my daughter had a side or Mac and cheese with chips (quite a huge portion for a side dish!!)More

Best burgers in Keswick and probably up there with the best I've ever had. Our yearly visit to the Lakes always includes a visit to the Round (past three years) as the food, beer and atmosphere are just first class (and dog friendly too). Choice...of burgers (including veggie options) makes it hard to choose as they all look so great. We visit as a family of 6 and tend to go in around 5pm / 5:30pm and normally the queue is around 15 minutes to get a table. The team have always been really friendly and helpful - service is fantastic for how busy they get. Over the past three years the wait for food has ranged from 20mins to 40mins depending on how busy they get - but worth the wait Great selection of beers as well. Looking forward to going back next yearMore

Excellent burgers and fries. Really friendly service. You can’t book but they try to get you in. We went at around 8 on a Thursday evening and got in no problem but there were queues when we walked past on Friday and Saturday evening -...shows how popular it is! Loved the cheesy crinkle cut fries and a great choice of burgers.More
