We often call into the George on our way home from a long walk, or a visit to the market. The food here is always excellent, portions are generous, good home cooked food. The atmosphere is always welcoming, staff pleasant and efficient. The Sunday lunch was no different, the roast beef was tender, the vegetables well cooked and the puddings...

Great food in restaurant, the portions are as large as a mountain. Breakfast orders can be a little mixed up, but not a major problem! Ideal location, not particularly noisy, good atmosphere. But NO internet coverage from the hotel or 4G coverage??

The George is the oldest inn in Keswick, it is well maintained and retains some of its traditional charm. We stayed for one night, fabulous, the room was very comfortable, plenty of storage space. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was cooked to order and we had our evening meal in the hotel, both delicious. Food is locally...

We booked a two night break at this hotel as it is nice and central in Keswick, unfortunately it was not the stay we anticipated. The room was clean and tidy but they could do with upgrading the beds as ours was very uncomfortable, the shower is not modern either. On our first morning the breakfast service was terrible, we...

From this review I can clearly see that some people are more familiar with fast food than fresh, local, cooked to order food, The George is renowned for the excellent food we provide both at breakfast time, lunch and evenings, we do not serve fast food, we serve fresh food as fast as we can !!

Stayed for two nights on my first visit to Keswick. I would definitely stay here again, and would therefore recommend The George. Not a modern hotel but that's what you expect from such an old building. Our room was at the front of the hotel so there was some noise but nothing that would cause a problem, and I prefer...

First off we visited the George twice in two days, both at the end of a long day of walking. We hadn't booked a table so we had to wait for one to become available however one became free in the bar area first which was fortunate. Tip: On nice days, try and book ahead to avoid disappointment. A nice...

What a treat after a great day exploring the Lake District to find a warm pub with a charming restaurant side. But then to see you can have half a pie...this made me a happy Wigan lass! And it was a Pie to end all pies!!! Tasty sides, good choices, friendly staff, intimate setting, charming environment, convenient location and reasonable...
