First of all, the food was good. Decent price and good portions. It is just that we did not feel relaxed taking our children there. They are well behaved but even so, we felt they were being too noisy(even though they were not!). Perhaps it was just us being paranoid. Probably best to make your own judgement.

This is a perfectly located hotel with loads of character. We stayed for 2 nights and had a lovely meal here on the 1st night. Breakfast on the 1st morning was excellent, however on the 2nd morning they had a problem with the kitchen extractor fan so no hot food available. The staff were very apologetic and this was reflected...

The newly refurbished bar is absolutely gorgeous but the same care and attention to detail hasn't been carried through to the rooms. We stayed in room 9 which was tiny and very awkwardly shaped with stairs directly down from the door. The ceiling was water stained and paintwork in general was rather shoddy. It didn't have the finish you would...

This hotel is a little gem. It's in a perfect location for exploring the Lakes or going walking. However, it's best feature is undoubtedly it's lovely staff, the warm, cosy decor and the great food it serves. The full Cumbrian breakfast is outstanding and there is a good choice of other dishes for those who prefer something lighter. Extra touches,...

I recently organised a weekend 'hen party' for a group of 14 friends (average age 40 something) in Keswick. Now whilst we may not have been the typical hen party we did want good food, definitely good wine and lots of it, in one of the most beautiful places in England - Keswick. Having rented a house for us all...

The Royal Oak at Keswick is in a perfect location at the heart of the historic town centre. There is an ambience you can feel as soon as you walk in the Inn. The staff greeted me, welcomed me in and looked after me throughout my stay. My room (on second floor with a view of the snow-covered fells), and...

Great pub accommodation in a perfect spot in the centre of Keswick. The staff couldn't have done more to make the experience enjoyable. The room was very comfortable with a good choice of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The bathroom was clean and modern. If we were going to be really picky the room showed a little bit of wear...

Stayed for 2 nights mid week and received a friendly welcome. Perfect location in Keswick, no car park but was able to park for free on some back streets otherwise it would have been expensive. Room 12 was cosy and decorated very tastefully. Loved the little extra's-teapot with a sheep cosy and a flask of fresh milk. We ate in...

Have visited the Royal Oak a few times and have never been disappointed. The service, food, atmosphere have been absolutely brilliant. We had Christmas Day lunch there and it was fabulous. So much lovely food. Not rushed, every course was a delight. Such a good atmosphere and plenty of Christmas crackers. Christmas is not Christmas without crackers. So much fun....
