We never visit Keswick without calling in here and it never disappoints. The staff are very helpful and friendly and we love the fact we can take our dogs in. Lots of choice in clothes for the outdoors and a nice little cafe too. Shopping experience as it should be!

Hi Jane, Very sorry to hear that your most recent visit to Abraham's Cafe was so disappointing, especially after so many years of eating here. I'll raise this with our cafe manager and with the kitchen to resolve what happened and how to prevent it in future. Such a shame that you didn't have time to say something when you... More

Excellent service, we had concerns regarding our sons feet and were offered advice from a podiatrist who popped down to the shop floor and assessed our sons feet and suggested some exercises and insoles to use (in advance of our NHS appointment) Sam fitted our sons shoes and was very knowledgeable about the shoes available and the best fit.

This is a little gem in Keswick. The shop itself has a great range of everything you need for the walking and the outdoors. The cafe is small but really nice with a simple range of very good quality tasty food and treats. Cater well for gluten free and staff were also able to advise on ingredients for uncommon allergies.... More

Apart from a great range of outdoor gear, George Fisher has an excellent cafe on the top floor. Locally sourced food, great service. It's always our first stop in Keswick

The shop itself is outstanding with extremely knowledgable staff, but the cafe is a must visit!! A small, cozy area upstairs, with attentive staff and lovely meals, cakes and drinks plus free wifi - will certainly be going back!
