We have been in the area on and off over the past 3 years but this is the first time we have tried the Lakes Bar (you get stuck in your ways very quickly!!!!). Meeting up with friends during the Keswick convention this proved to be the easiest point to do so. We were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff and having met there for coffee and cake 3 days running decided to have lunch too. We were not disappointed as the food was beautifully presented and a joy to eat. Many thanks for helping make our stay in the area even better.

We went to the lakes bar and bistro on Tuesday 15th July , there was 5 of us in total. To start with we kept it simple with a pea and ham soup and a few garlic ciabattas with and without the sunblushed tomatoes, exquisite!!! I then had the pork which was cooked to perfection, all the portions were very generous and you definitely get your money's worth. Because it was my birthday my other half had arranged for a birthday cake to come out at the end, the staff were very attentive and well mannered and even sang happy birthday .. loved every minute of our time there... we even got engaged. Excellent food excellent service, will definitely be going back!!!

Wow, for under £11 I had one of the best meals ever. Triple cooked chips with ham and leek pie (short crust pastry top) and chunky (probably steamed) vegetables. All done to perfection, with love, care and a smile on the face of the three male serving staff which is unusual. They worked well as a team and engaged well with us.

Preceded with scallops which were outstanding. Topped off with a Creme brûlée to die for. George had salmon fillet which was delicious too. Very nice ambience in bistro and on this experience deserves a better rating than 14th

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.
