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.

I don’t usually leave a review, however we were so impressed with this restaurant. We came on a busy Saturday evening, so the atmosphere was great. The mezcal margarita was incredible - I had 3. There was plenty of choice on the menu without being...too overwhelming and fairly priced. The staff were hands down some of the most attentive and friendly we have encountered in a long time. Overall we had a fantastic evening and would highly recommended to couples and families and solo travelers alike.More

Great for food and a catch up over a beer after a long day mooching around the western lakes and coastal roads. Food and service top notch

Fantastic meal and fantastic service, can’t fault it. We went down to the bar afterward for the DJ, great laid back tunes and fantastic drinks. Our only disappointment was after seeing the ribs for other tables we didn’t order them too. Thanks for a great...night 👍More

Great choice, delicious dishes. Great service. Happy, friendly staff. We took a dog so we’re restricted to back room but this wasn’t a problem. Lived the retro video game in there!

Accommodated a group of 8 with 2 dogs in a lovely private snug at the rear of the bar. Good knowledge from the waiting staff who were friendly, dressed smartly and helpful. The food and drink was high quality, very tasty and enjoyed by all....Reasonably priced.More

When we visit Braithwaite a few times every year this is the first booking we make. The food is always good and great value. Service is laid back. Enjoy 😉

Having spent over 36 years visiting Keswick this was our first visit to eS Bar and I don't know why we've delayed so long! It was a fantastic experience and the tapas was delicious. Staff were so welcoming and accommodating to us and our two...children, offering up some alternatives for our two year old to eat. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will most definitely be visiting again!More

Having eaten here a couple of times, we were dissapointed with our visit last night, everything felt rushed from the minute we entered the building. We ordered food and everything arrived all at once, not the usual relaxed bringing out dishes as they were ready,...table cleared while we were still eating. Felt like they wanted us out to seat the next table. Not sure we will be back in a hurry.More

First visit here - it was brilliant! Took a chance on New Year’s Eve - they were able to squeeze us in even though they were busy. The food was excellent and the drinks/ cocktails were great too. The service was friendly and efficient. There’s...a really happy vibe about this place and it’s suitable for young and older. I’m middle aged and didn’t feel out of place with the cool kids and the cool older people. And I’m not cool by the way. Really loved this place - they’ve got everything right. Well done you lot - you gave us a great welcome and made our first ever New Year’s Eve in Keswick a brilliant one. Thank you!More
