A wonderful little pub with excellent food and customer service. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The menu choice was excellent and we were spoilt for choice. The food was delicious with good portions and value for money. Seating is limited. Our first visit but certainly not our last.

Have been to this pub many times and must admit it is always busy. Not too fussed on the food menu but you always struggle to get a table, so lots of people like to eat here. For me this is a pub for a drink at night or after a long walk in the fells/mountains. Glad to see that... More

Excellent choice of beers. Comfortable but very busy pub. Food is great and the staff are all happy to stop and have a chat. You cant go without trying the famous goulash.

Popped in for a drink while on an overnight stay in Keswick, we found the place pleasant, bright and clean, will visit again when next in the area.

Loved the cosy atmosphere of this pub. Good selection of ale and craft beers. We only had a snack here, but the food smelled delicious. Will definitely revisited when back in the area

We had left it too late for lunch at The George so tried here instead as they were serving food all day. Nice and cosy near the fire and a nice relaxed vibe. Food was tasty - we had pie, scampi and curry - we all enjoyed our meals.

Popped in whilst shopping for a light lunch, the place was busy and had a nice festive atmosphere. My husband had the goulash which was very good whilst I had a chicken sandwich. Both well presented and reasonable prices for keswick. Good service and pretty little pub.
