We were in Keswick for the weekend for the first time as we normally stay in Ambleside, it was raining and we sheltered in the doorway of the little bistro and how lucky we were. We both had the mushroom soup to start and can honestly say it was the best soup I've ever had. Neither of us could finish the main as we'd already ordered the dessert. We didn't finish the dessert either. The staff were very friendly and helpful but the food was the best bit. I would recommend this bistro to all who visit Keswick but would especially recommend the mushroom soup and the cheesecake.

The restaurant is modern and the staff were friendly and efficient, My wife and I chose pork fillet with peppercorn sauce accompanied by vegetables which we enjoyed. For dessert we had sticky toffee pudding - one of the best we have eaten for some time.
We had a very pleasant evening.

Wandered around Keswick looking for something to eat after a days walking on the fells, this place isn't on the main street so you may just miss it.
We were shown to a nice table in a not too cramped restaurant where there were different types of seating. We ordered drinks and food and didn't have to wait long for either, we had the roast beef dinner and my partners son had the chicken and ham pie. Both were well cooked and the vegetables weren't cooked to mush, portion sizes are good too.
The staff were great, really friendly and helpfull , add this to the good prices and we will definitely be calling in again next time we are in Keswick.
Thanks Guys :-)

We had a lovely meal here. Beautiful decor but a very relaxed atmosphere, child and dog friendly too.
Could not fault anything about our meals, all three courses were absolutely delicious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. They provided our daughter with some crayons and a colouring book to keep her happy.
Will definitely go back here when we next visit Keswick.
