Staff were friendly and humerous. Food was generously portioned and adequately priced. I had lamb Henry, and while it was good and wasn't disappointed with it, it wasn't the best I've had. Would still recommend this as a good place to eat.

We have passed this pub on more occasions than I could care to remember after visiting Keswick but never felt drawn in by it. However we were pleasantly surprised when we were persuaded to eat here by the owner of our guesthouse. The food was extremely good and the staff were extremely friendly and attentive without being overbearing.

I have been to the Pheasant on and off the past few years. It has slowly got better and last weekend was no exception. I booked a table for 6 of us and 2 high chairs for lunch on a Saturday. Arrived, log fire burning and as always some nice real ales on tap. I was driving and it is... More

The food here is amazing! The steak pie is unreal! Great selection of ales and beers also. A beautiful quaint pub, we eat here every time we visit Keswick. Cannot recommend it enough.

The last time we visited for Sunday lunch we were far from happy and said we'd give it one more chance. However, my husband and I visited today and the restaurant has redeemed itself sufficiently to say we'll probably come again. We've been coming for more than 20 years and we'd hate to abandon what has become our favourite restaurant... More

Brought our son and his fiancee here for a meal for my birthday. Neither of them had been here before and they were pleasantly surprised. Our son declared it was the best beer he'd had so far (been here a week) and they both thought the meal was the best they'd had in ages. We had to agree, delicious steaks,... More

Came to the pub for dinner mid-week. Not very busy but still felt warm and welcoming. Ordered gammon and chips. Gammon came with egg or pineapple and I asked for both which wasn't a problem. Chips were lovely and crisp. Husband had venison stew and veggies, which he said was very tasty. He had a gooseberry crumble thing and custard... More

We only stopped by for a drink but we were so glad we did! The staff were so friendly and welcoming both to ourselves and to our Dog! Even though just stopping for a drink they provided treats and lots of fuss to our pampered pooch and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Top place for... More
