Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review, following on from your recent visit. You made a good decision going for Dan's steak and ale pie, it’s going to be famous in Keswick, we're sure about it! We hope to welcome you back to the Kings Arms again in the future. Kind Regards Leah

Car parking was with a permit in local car park which was a walk through an alleyway which may not be friendly to those with mobility issues.

The staff where all foreign so the orders where lost in translation. Good thing is your in Keswick so just go somewhere else where you...

We couldn't decide on which pub to eat dinner at and we glad when we found the Kings Arms. The staff were pleasant, efficient and friendly. The menu was extensive for a pub with the usual pub fare. The wine list was a little limited but not a problem. Would recommend as a great local pub with good food and...

This hotel provided us with an excellent dinner before seeing a play at the Theatre-by-the-Lake in Keswick on 7th Sept. Service was quick and efficient just as needed. We shall definitely use it again in the same situation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Newly refurbished AA 3 star Hotel right in the centre of Keswick, the Lake District. In the 17th century, Keswick was the crossroads for many of the horse and carriage routes which traversed this part of the English Lake District. The Kings Arms Hotel, a true Coaching Inn of that period, offers the traveller of today the same unrivaled hospitality and friendly service in keeping with its heritage. To stay at the Kings Arms Hotel in Keswick is to experience the legacies, in modern day comfort and luxury, of a true Coaching Inn. A warm and friendly smile awaits you from our well trained staff, whose aim is to make your stay one of many. The air-conditioned, newly refurbished restaurant serves appetising home-cooked dishes such as slow-cooked local lamb joints and the almost-famous spare ribs, beef & Jennings ale pie, delicious hand-cut, home-cooked chips plus mouth-watering hot and cold desserts. After a hearty meal, why not relax in front of the open fire with a drink in the newly-refurbished, cosy oak-beamed bar and watch the world go by outside on the streets of Keswick. With over 40 whisky's and some of the best local ales on tap the choice is yours. Or in the summer months take a seat in the charming courtyard, which is the perfect place to enjoy delicious food and a refreshing drink al fresco. There are 13 recently refurbished bedrooms all with their own shower rooms. ... more   less
