We ate here after spending the morning canoeing on a very choppy Derwentwater, and were desperate for somewhere to warm up! I can definitely recommend the Sunday roast - two HUGE slabs of roast beef (not overcooked), yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and a selection of veg. All very good value at £10 per person (the mains on their regular menu seemed to be overpriced compared to this). Dessert was an additional £2, and was really lovely, properly homemade apple pie - genuinely the best pastry I have ever had in a restaurant! Service was friendly and prompt. Not an amazing gourmet meal, but a tasty, hearty, relaxing one. Just what was needed.

My boyfriend and I were staying in Keswick a couple of weeks ago, on our first night we came here for a meal. The food was horrendous, after a long wait we ordered rack of ribs and a burger. The ribs were cold in the middle so we sent it back and it was returned to us still cut up and had clearly just been microwaved. Would not recommend at all.

Walking through Keswick and stopped here for lunch as the menu seemed good. Food was good but took an extraordinarily long time to come. Staff were friendly enough but seemed like they were short on cooks!

I visited this place with 4 friends whilst on a course recently. On entering everyone stopped what they were doing and just stared at us, just like in the Star Wars film. We found a table and went to order drinks. We were not allowed a tab so we could split the bill at the end so everyone had to in turn go to the bar to order their own food and drink and then pay!!
Bar staff were a little strange but lady delivering the food was friendly enough.
Food was just Ok, nothing special. My veggie lasagne was caked on to the bottom of the dish it was served in.
