This was keswick lodge until recently. We went here on a wet friday last week and were not dissapointed. there were 6 of us who managed to aquire a large table. Although the restaurant side was untidy, we managed to clear our table ourselves as the staff were busy and understaffed, also prior to the evening staff coming on. 2 of us ordered lamb hotpot with side dish of real chips. another meal was steak, a pasta dish, a veggie assortment and gammon. All meals arrived promptly as it was 4.0 in the afternoon in between the busy periods. the lamb hotpot was as tasty as you could make yourself and all other meals were enjoyed fully with real homemade chips served which can be a bit rare in keswick! The meals were washed down with wainrights and pinot grigio which were all well!
This place appears to have really got its act together, along with a climbing amount of eateries in keswick who are looking to get customers returning for meals as opposed to some of the establishments who see the customers as passing trade and aren;t altogether bothered if customers return or not as the tourist trade is fast changing and a lot of them wont be back anyways. A bit of effort, along with quality food, will only promote folk recommending places to eat and will get them to return themselves. We all will!
