Visited again today. Great Rioja, tasty snacks and a game of chess hiding from storm Doris! Will return next time I visit Keswick.

This wonderful cafe was recommend to us by locals - and we now know why they love it so much! A superb range of food and drink, all at sensible prices, and great quality. We were spoiled for choice with the menu - great range. For drinks, there's everything from freshly-brewed speciality coffee to local (Hesket Newmarket) beer. The staff... More

Visited this cafe on our trip to Keswick. Was recommended it by a couple we got talking to. Very friendly ( even allowed our dog in) and gave him some treats. Food menu looked very exciting but we only had nachos as hadn't long eaten. (They were tasty).hot mulled wine was also good. Great place, lovely atmosphere and will return

My partner and I visited here, mainly due to the Trip Advisor reviews. I'm a little surprised it's so high in the Keswick rankings. It was nice, but nothing special. We shared 2 tapas as starters and had a pizza each, washed down with a pint, all in it was just short of £40. There were 3 staff working, the... More

A good selection of Euro and local draft beers. The tapas looked and tasted like you would get in Spain. Toys and books available for the children while we waited for the food to arrive. The worse the weather was on the outside the better the atmosphere was inside here.

Very grateful that the bar was open when most were places were shut on a cold February evening. My husband was starving said as much and asked for the meatballs. About 7 of them arrived with some bread which was quite amusing. He enjoyed the San Miguel. My Nachos were tasty and a good size portion. It's a bit cosy... More

Whilst a lovely place to stop off for coffee and food at any time - Wednesday evening brings out its best. It seems to be the only live music in town on a Wednesday. A simple and unpretentious experience of listening to local artists all of whom play acoustic guitar and sing a variety of genres.

Called on a Sunday for a light lunch. Managed to get a seat, having passed by many times. Nice atmosphere inside, pleasant staff and the food and drinks were very good. Felt a bit squashed inside, but would return again.

Fantastic place. Very welcoming. Great tapas. Uniquely atmosphere for a restaurant in the lakes. Down to earth, laid back and lots of food and drink on offer. Easily go again.

Found this little cafe bar by default as I don't usually walk in the direction of the bar- I would highly recommend a visit to the square orange, as we had fantastic tapas and drinks. Staff were friendly and very hospitable and welcomed you to there bar. Drinks we a great price in a quaint setting that was so comfortable,... More
