Good pub food. Had the pan fried trout with almonds. Chicken curry and the meat pies also excellent. Good wine choice. Nice to have Alsace wines on menu.

Food and beer combination means this is the place to visit in keswick . Cumberland pie or the lamb shoulder with any of the Jennings ales.

Escaped from the pouring rain, to be welcomed by a warm and friendly atmosphere. The bar area is dog friendly and our two settled down quickly. The beer is well kept and our food was produced quickly and was very tasty. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I popped in on Sunday to have a meal, but we were disappointed with the food which was very average and the service which was just okay. We will not be back in a rush.
