Visited here Easter Monday after trying another pub opposite who insisted on folding Baby push chair before entering but not in the Golden Lion though , we were greeted and treated excellently when we asked if it was ok to bring in the pram, plenty of space and a high chair brought promptly over for our grandson.
The interior is modern and pleasant with a very courteous staff.
Not a large menu but excellent selection of meals to cover all types of diners including a vegetarian choice and boos children's menu too
The prices were great value too and not your usual ott that is the norm in most tourist haunts
The food that we all ordered came berg quickly too and the quality of the food was very good as can be supported by the recommendation from my wife who is a very fussy diner the chips which were served with the meal were actual home cooked/prepped not the usual catering supply thin cut variety.
The drink selection was very good with a good seller cation of ales both local and others , lagers and a wide choice of spirits and wines and again the bar prices were very reasonable
The atmosphere at our time of visit was relatively quiet but at 17:00 on an Easter Monday that would be expected as most of the tourists would be off home at this time.
We regularly visit Keswick as we are from west Cumbria so in the future we will definitely return and gave also recommended to our other son and daughter who have young infants
So next time in Keswick give it a go I'm sure you won't be disappointed

Had a nice lunch here, I had fish and chips (lovely), she had Steak and Ale pie (great) and the 8 year old had Nuggets (standard). Free wifi, keenly priced and very dog friendly, good grub. Service was great. One to go back to.

Had lunch for 2 adults/2kids for £50 for 2 courses and drinks. I had steak & ale pie, handcut chips (absolutely wonderful) and veg - my wife is vegetarian and had halloumi burger with aubergine red pepper and Harissa relish -again really tasty. My wife had chocolate brownie and stated it was the best she had ever tasted. I had sticky toffee pudding - another triumph

Not often one has the opportunity to really sing the praises of the chef but we made a point in saying how much we enjoyed the food - we will definitely return!
