If you're only after a good meal this place will do the job for Indian food. My partner is actually Indian and appreciated that the food is good. However, there are an unusually high number of flies buzzing around which is disconcerting. The prices are...More

In Keswick for the weekend and looking forward to an Indian meal after the staple pub food we had sampled previously. Sadly, Lakeland Spice was exceptionally disappointing. The mixed meat starter was inedible. But there was worse to come... the main course was just awful!...More

Not sure. I've never seen a dog in there. I'd avoid this place. Hygiene rating of 3 and bland food. No wonder the dogs don't go there!
