“Best pub in Keswick.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

After spending a week in Keswick, we visited the Dog and Gun twice, due to its great dog friendly atmosphere, it's amazing goulash and chicken tikka masala (which I had twice) :) my hat goes off to this place, prices are great, 1 goulash, 1 chicken tikka and 2 drinks for £18. Makes for a great lunch or dinner stop off. Will be visiting again when in the Lake District again.

Called in here one afternoon. Really liked it. Cozy with a good atmosphere. Good value for money. My husband enjoyed the chicken curry. I enjoyed the steak pie.

“Great pub & homemade food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Authentic but get there early to avoid disappointment. Limited but tasty menu as small kitchen. It's normally busy but food is yum.

“Stopped off for drink, but couldn't get a table for food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

During a wonder of Keswick it completely lashed it down. Ran to see if they did food, it did, but was rammed due to everyone sheltering from the rain. Stopped for a drink which was great, No chance at getting a table so went else where. Bar staff apologetic, will try again soon as the food looked great.

“Cozy and relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Great food. Great atmosphere. Wish more places would allow dogs. £1 dog treat bag was a nice touch. Will return when back in the area.
