When ever we are in Keswick we always spend time in Abraham's, it's a must do for excellent food , very friendly staff and very good value. We have been there many many times and can never find fault. Such a really lovely restaurant that is without compare. Do not walk past it !

Visited here over winter with family, including a young child, as my mother raves about the food - her favourite being the rarebit. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was swift. The food was tasty and plentiful, and I was assured that it often tastes even better! The menu is fantastic and this is definitely a good place... More

I visited over Christmas with a friend. I ordered the Lakeland cheddar sandwich with homemade chutney. Oddly I got two small round slices of bread side by side on the plate with no butter or chutney on and about an entire block of grated cheddar just dumped on top. This made it very difficult to eat and I resorted to... More

Hello Thanks for leaving a review. Sorry your sandwich wasn't quite what you were expecting, sounds like you got a bit more cheese than was required on your open sandwich, but the bread should definitely have been buttered. I've passed on your comments to the kitchen and cafe. Victoria More

We visit Keswick at least once every year, and this cafe is always top of the list for lunch. Consistently excellent food, service and ambiance. Walker and family friendly the only minor downside is that sometimes you have to wait for a table - testimony to its excellence! The wait is never too long.

We traditionally return to Abraham's when in Keswick.The broth is more like a main meal of stew. Everything top quality and good value - a nice touch is getting a free top up of coffee.

Very tasty lunch. Jacket potato just right, generous amount of tuna and salad was lovely and fresh. Cumberland rarebit was well received as was the Cumberland sausage. Little shortbread biscuits served with all drinks melted in your mouth.

My favourite lunch venue in Keswick. Tasty home made soup, lovely bread, delicious salads and yummy cakes. It's not very big so can't accommodate a large party: our group of 9 were fortunate to be able to sit together (with some table moving!) but brilliant for couples or small groups.
