Ordered a burger mine was cremated. I never send back food because I hate causing a fuss but that wasn't edible. Eventually got my burger while after my partner had finished his and it was still burnt. Please don't waste your time.

Visited for lunch while out for a motorbike ride. Always friendly staff, great service and excellent food which didn't take long. Great for walkers, bikers, hikers, cyclists, familes and well-behaved dogs. We'll be back.

Being a local and aware Keswick is touristy we tried the Filling Station. Were impressed, clean, family run business that clearly tries hard. The food and drinks were were tasty and good value. Would happily return.

Hi, yes we're dog friendly inside, but only on the right hand side as you come in - that's 2 booths and 2 coffee counter areas. We also have a bowl should your pet need a drink too. Regards Kieron Graham
