We had lunch here last week and he was excellent. We had a prawn and a scallop dish to start, both excellent and well cooked. For mains we had a Lakeland burger and a Pesto Chicken Bruschetta....again both excellent. Well spaced and good COVID controls. I’d recommend booking in the evening as it’s not that big.

Excellent service, super friendly staff, great menu, loads of veggie options and even swap chicken dishes for Quorn.
Came here twice in one week as it was just so good.
We will be sure to come the next time were in Keswick.

Really disappointed
Jul 2020 • Couples
We are regulars here whenever we are in Keswick, so we were excited to go for lunch after it re-opened. We stood at the table, at the front of the restaurant ( with the hand gel on ) waiting to be seated, as we were not sure if you could just sit anywhere with the current situation! The guy at the bar was busy at first and there was a lady cleaning tablets who just ignored us, so we just sat down at a table! We kept glancing over at the members of staff, but still just ignored in the mean time other people where getting served! So my Husband just said come let’s just go. So we went somewhere else, shame really as we have also enjoyed meals here, I am just hoping it was down to staffing and the current situation ( hopefully)

Went here on Friday evening after the Christmas light switch in and our last night in Keswick.
We were welcomed by the two staff straight away & they organised a table for 5 in a lovely booth .
The interior is very nice and we had a very nice evening here , the food was really good ! With not long to wait and great service , the two male staff were working the busy bar & serving food , clearing away all evening and this never affected the service they provided .
Highly recommend this bar to visit & not far to walk from the main square .

Nice lunch
Sep 2019 • Family
We choose this place purely by chance as it was a warm sunny September day and they had seating outside which made it easier for my mum who is in a wheelchair. They had a good choice on the menu. We were all happy with our meals and portion sizes were hearty too. Staff all nice so would go back.

Evening meal
Jun 2019 • Couples
Had evening meal here this (mid) week. Food & service fantastic, just a shame it was so quiet as the restaurant / bar is very warm and welcoming. Been in Keswick 4 nights and this was best meal so far). The bars/ restaurants around the ‘square’ are always busy. This is literally around the corner (of the square) and worth a visit !

Good choice of hearty meals

Excellent service, restaurant was recommended to us, so we booked a table. We were not disappointed. Meals were huge and very filling. We had a sharing platter to start, which was lovely and very well presented. Meal from the specials board and main menu, was just as nice. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely lunch

Came here by chance as had been recommended by friends.
Was quiet when arrived which is not always a good sign. Let me say people are missing out here. Lovely food and very reasonable in price.
Somewhere I will definitely be returning to.

Terrible Time
Apr 2018 • Friends
Booked a table several weeks prior to attending for 8.00 pm. Eat here several times before. on arrival we were given a table near to the toilets for 4 people but set for 6. We asked if we could have the small table next to us as the people sitting here had finished and we were too squashed. The female member of staff was so rude stating we should not be so big. we said she was rude and offensive. The Manager did come over and offer us a round of drinks but we declined and said no no we will pay for our drinks we just need a bit more room. After around 30 mins of waiting for food the manager suddenly announced we had to leave. we were flabbergasted. We were the ones that had been treated badly. on reading trip advisor it turns out they had the same problem earlier in the evening with other customers. I will never recommend this place to anyone. the service is bad, the staff are rude and the Manager is weak and allowing silly girls to rule the roost.

Good food but shocking service
Mar 2018 • Couples
We had tried to book a table for 7.30 on Easter Saturday but been told it would have to be 7.00 or 8.15. That was no problem - we opted for 7.00.

On arrival most of the tables were occupied but nobody had any food. We ordered drinks which came quickly but when the waitress came to take the food order, we were told there would be a bit of a delay which we established would be around 45 minutes. Having already got drinks and, with it difficult to get in anywhere else, we stayed and ordered.

I have no idea why we were told that there was nothing available between 7.00 and 8.15 as the place was packed at 7.00 but there were empty tables well before 8.15.

Other guests were complaining at the delay but food did eventually start to come out. Our starter did arrive after around 45 minutes and was very nice. There was a further delay for the main course but again this was nice. We did ask for the dessert menu but this never arrived so, after spending 2 hours in there having a two course meal, we gave up the will to live and I went to pay, initially being given the wrong bill.

A party of 6 came in whilst we were there but complained that their table was not big enough - on fairness a definite four person table. They clearly complained and the Manager/Owner (who did seem to have a very surly attitude) asked them to leave - OK for him as he managed to turn the table around but not great for the guests!

The waiter and waitress were very pleasant, and the food (when it arrived) was good - but the service was appalling - down to 'questionable' management I would suggest
