We walked in and immediately liked the pubs vibe. Scored comfortable seating to enjoy our trout and hamburger meals. All good, as well as the beer and wine selections.

Visited on a Saturday night. You do need to book a table as it gets busy. Live bands on at weekend which were decent. Plenty of choice on the menu. Staff were pleasant and food was piping hot.

Being frequent visitors to Keswick, we often drop in the Packhorse for a drink or food. This time, we called Monday night and found it to be much quieter than the weekend (which was a welcome change). The food was great (we both had pie) and the service was efficient and friendly.

Ate here on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was busy, but the service was still very good. We were a large party and the meals all turned up together and were very good quality and value. certainly recommend the Sunday roasts!!

Regularly eat in here when in town - never disappointed. Good selection of lakeland food with very decent portions. Puddings a bit limited but usually full after one or two courses anyway. Super selection of beers. Never had a problem with service.

We went to the Pack Horse on the recommendation of my Brother in Law on a Sunday Evening, the pub was packed when we got there with people eating which is always a good sign and the food we had did not disappoint along with good service.
