During a weeks stay in Keswick this was our go - to pub for a pint in Keswick. It was always busy, yet we always managed to find a seat. Muddy boots, wet weather gear and dogs were all very welcome in the pub too,...More

Arrived at 2pm on a Monday and the only food available was soup, goulash or nachos, which looked and smelled tasty. As we didn't want food, we just ordered drinks, which were served with a friendly smile and greeting. Ample seating. Clean toilets. Very welcoming.

The sandwiches at mid day were not up to the usual standard, the bread was dry and the salad was limp and looked like dandelion leaves. Having said that, they were busy, the service was quick and the beer was good.
