We tried this for the first time after reading the glowing comments on TripAdvisor. Food was filling and hot and arrived quickly after our order, but we thought it was fairly unexceptional - even the much praised fish pie. A little disappointing after the great write up it had got. However, the service was good and quick and the bill... More

Lashing down outside with horizontal rain meant a quick run in without looking too much, the log burner was on and fairly busy for a Tuesday lunchtime. Beer was local and lovely and the food was typical pub stuff and very tasty, it's on the way in to Keswick just off the A66, so pop in of passing.

We enjoyed a tasty relaxing afternoon tea here. The sandwiches and scones were very tasty. The atmosphere in the lounge was a little stuffy and dated. Would recommend a visit as good value for money.

Within walking distance from the town of Keswick, this is a welcoming country pub serving a selection of real ales. Food is also a great attraction and the Lamb Henry was awesome but should be at £15+

Arrived at our Millbeck Cottage on a dark ,damp evening, then went in search of a pub for a bite to eat. The Pheasant was the first one we came across. It looked inviting, so we thought we'd give it a go. First impressions, warm and inviting, lovely roaring fire and pretty busy. But we managed to get a table... More

We went here for a lovely dinner. The menu was varied and every dish we had was delicious. The bar has lots of variety of whisky and gin. The piece de resistance is the dining room with the fire for hotel guests or diners with dogs; it was full when we went but it looked very warm and cosy, definitely... More

We had wanted to try this pub on the outskirts of Keswick for some time. We arrived on a damp/wet Saturday about 1pm. There was an open fire and the place, if not full, was fairly busy. The service was quick and the beer was top notch. The food arrived with an excellent selection of vegetables in a separate dish.... More

Staff were friendly and humerous. Food was generously portioned and adequately priced. I had lamb Henry, and while it was good and wasn't disappointed with it, it wasn't the best I've had. Would still recommend this as a good place to eat.

We have passed this pub on more occasions than I could care to remember after visiting Keswick but never felt drawn in by it. However we were pleasantly surprised when we were persuaded to eat here by the owner of our guesthouse. The food was extremely good and the staff were extremely friendly and attentive without being overbearing.

Thank Martin T
