Description: Located on a bustling pedestrian street in the heart of Keswick, close to the busy market square and shores of Lake Derwentwater, Cafe Bar 26 is a relaxed Mediterranean style cafe bistro by day and a vibrant wine and cocktail bar in the evening with a unique atmosphere. Feeling peckish? We serve brunch and tapas Tuesday - Saturday 9.00am - 4.00pm. We also serve great illy coffee, interesting wines, continental beers, cocktails and champagne all day long! Perfect after a day on the fells or simply a stroll around the shops. There is also open mic night every Wednesday from 9.00pm. We are closed Mondays.

Have lunched here on several occasions
The choice of tapas is varied and numerous all excellent and we are slowly getting through the menu
Staff and service excellent with a cheerful atmosphere throughout and a good bit of crack
Why doesn’t everywhere serve Fever Tree soda?? It’s better than any other
Highly recommend this jewel in Keswick don’t change anything except the menu from time to time
Tuna balls next time!!!!

Visited Keswick yesterday and decided to have lunch in Cafe Bar 26 - great decision. Greeted by very friendly staff, lovely chilled atmosphere. We chose from the menu 3 tapas dishes, freshly cooked, piping hot and absolutely delicious. It is obvious the Chef’s passion for taste and presentation shines through. Worth visiting Keswick just to eat here.

Just returned home from another visit to Cafe Bar 26. Coffee superb as ever! It is so important to know that coffee is consistently good whenever we visit!
I had Spanish meatballs today - served like taco snacks. Astonishingly good, with such a zingy, mouthwatering sauce! One helping was plenty but left me licking my lips all afternoon!
My wife had salmon - also delicious. Very nice indeed!
I can not recommend this restaurant highly enough! We have visited many times and it is always good!! We visit from 70 miles away too so I regret we can’t visit every day! I do hope we can visit again very soon!!

Have eaten here on a number of occasions. Tasty, freshly cooked Tapas. Friendly staff. Wheelchair and dog friendly too - which is a bonus for us.
Recommended.

Great location just up from the Lake. We had eaten here previously (tapas) but it seems now to not serve food on an evening or if it did it wasn't obviously advertised. Nice setting and friendly barmaid; it's a shame that the sexist sign behind the bar - likely dubbed amusing 'banter' - rather put us off being there-not very in keeping with the vibe.
