Nice pub in the central market area of Keswick. It was recommended as the CAMRA recognized pub for real ale in town. We were not disappointed. The staff was helpful, the selection of local ales excellent, and the atmosphere was unique and comfortable. If we return to Keswick we will return to the Dog and Gun.

Love this pub. Visit Keswick at least once a year and the Dog gets plenty of visits during my stay. The goulash is fantastic and well with a try. Due to its popularity it can sometimes be difficult to get a table but you generally get one before too long.

One small negative is that on one of our visits the Old Peculiar was off. Not a major issue for me as these things happen, and is certainly not indicative of previous visits. What's more, there was certainly no issue from the bar staff when it was pointed out, and there were a lot of alternatives available.

Give this place a go, you won't regret it

I'd like the atmosphere and the real ale. I didn't try the food but it looked good and the portions were on the generous side.

Really like this pub because it is totally dog friendly. You have to try the beef Goulash, delicious. Good choice of beers, the Old Peculiar was lush. Can be a bit of a mare getting a table, but have a pint while your waiting, it's worth it.
