My Husband and I have eaten in The Golden Lion numerous times. Never had a bad meal. Food is excellent, can't fault it. I would go as far as saying it's probably the best pub food and best value in Keswick.

My food was worse than I expected (in salmon pie there were just a few very small pieces of salmon, not worth a price), anyway atmosphere and service were good and my friends were more satisfied, so I expect my food was just an exception.

Hello I am sorry that you did not enjoy your meal, but i just wanted to clarify to others that the dish is a smoked salmon fishcake which consists of mash potatoes, white fish ,and smoked salmon and not a pie which the gentleman seems to have expected. It is one of our most popular dishes and had you alerted us to your displeasure we would have rectified the situation. Once again I am sorry that you weren't satisfied
Regards
