We stepped into the pub after reading the sign for the specials of the day. They looked good, and the prices were reasonable. The pub itself has a nice atmosphere, and the bartender was very friendly, so we settle in for a nice meal.

Unfortunately, the meal did not live up to expectations. I'm not sure it was even cooked there as someone had to leave the bar to order it (I may be mistaken on that). The food arrived in genrous portions, but that was overkill as I couldn't even finish the food. It was poorly prepared, and it had an off taste as if the beef was old and turning.

I think the pub would be a good place to hang out, socialize, and have a drink or three, but I cannot recommend it for the food.

When we visit Keswick, about 6 times a year, we always eat here. The beer is decent, the food is very good value and the staff are nice. I always have the lasagne and hubby has the lamb. Consistently good.

Have ate at the 'Oddies' many times over the years and have never had a complaint. The food is cheap and cheerful and there is generally plenty of it. You know what you are getting when you eat here and the cellar is kept well. Good Banter with the bar staff and whoever is the live music for the evening.

We had a very enjoyable pint of local beer in this cosy, proper pub. We didn't eat there, but there was good menu.
