We ate at The George on a recommendation and it certainly didn't disappoint. We arrived without booking yet the staff happily accommodated our party of 12 without fuss. The menu has lots of choice from Steaks to Stir Fry. Most of our party were spoilt for choice. The senior server did an amazing job; she was particularly helpful when our... More

I'd seen good reviews and couldn't wait to try the cow pie. It didn't disappoint. The best pie I've ever eaten combined with a delightful pint or two made this our favourite Keswick pub.

Probably best of the 3 nights dinners was here, 1/2 cow pie was tender, very good, wife had steak, was also excellent. Very good if you fancy traditional hearty food.

We chose The George on recommendation from a friend. He advised get there before 12 as it's very busy. We settled into a table by the gas fire in front of the bar around 11.50. We chose to order the small portion of cow pie and mash at £13.45 again on the advice of our friend. I went to order... More

We ate here as two familes of young children. We were greeted warmly and found a table as it was early evening an the booked tables were taken later. However the staff shift changed and so did the attitude, we suddenly felt like a problem to them. The food arrived over a long timescale with some meals almost finished before... More

Arrived into Keswick late afternoon and decided on the George for a drink. Lovely ambience in front of the fire. Decided to eat and ordered Haddock & Chips. Unfortunately our choice of food was less than appetizing. The batter was thick and heavy. A beer batter would have been much more appealing. Choose something different. Lots of choices and it...

Restaurant from inside looks quite nice and they have a really good fish and chips. However that was it. Pie was not good at all and staff was unpleasant and not very accommodating.
