Booked a meal which was very disappointing inedible,large solid lump found in the ale pie which definitely was not meat. Staff offered to change meal but put off by what... More

Booked the Horse and Farrier for a meal on the 5th March to celebrate my 50th birthday with my wife and parents. We've been here many times and always had a fantastic meal which is the reason I booked it. What a disappointment it turned out to be. The menu was very limited and when we arrived (at 6:30pm) we...

We own a cottage in threkeld so over the years have been here on and off. Usually go because it's convenient but never been too impressed. Don't know if it's changed hands but my self and my husband thought last night was really good. My sea bass with linguine was excellent and the ginger pudding superb. Long may this continue!

We booked our meal quite late but they found us a time that worked. We were welcomed warmly and shown straight to our table. Great choice in the menu and the food was served quickly and was hot, which for me is important. It was all perfectly cooked and really well presented and I thought good value for money. As... More

After climbing up and down Blencathra, we ventured here for a sandwich and a beer. Very friendly people and the sandwich and accompanying food was more like a proper lunch. It definitely helped refuel!

Then had dinner there later in the week and again food and service great...thanks Keith (hope I caught your name correctly..age!) for... More

My partner and I have been eating at the Horse and Farrier for quite a few years, and have seen several owners come and go during that time. We used to eat here when on holiday in the Lakes, and have lived about a 20 minute drive from this pub for the last 5 years. We decided to take a... More

We first visited the horse and farrier around 5 years ago. At the time we were looking for somewhere to have a quick lunch. What we ended up having was the three course Christmas special. Since then we've visited the lakes a couple of times but for the life of us we couldn't remember the name of the restaurant. Now,... More

As a resident of Keswick I visit the Horse and Farrier from time to time for lunch, either when I'm taking a break from working indoors or out on the fells. This is the best eating venue in the Keswick area, including the town. Professionally run with friendly, courteous staff, top class meals. Nice pint of Guinness too!
