My friend and I stopped there for a pint on a cold rainy day. We enjoyed the people, the dogs, the roaring fire.

It's our second time visiting the lakes, and our second time coming to this lovely pub. The food was fantastic, as was the service and selection of drinks. Will definitely return for our third time.

Dog and gun is a favourite of ours. It gets a visit from us every time we are in Keswick. Plenty of choice of fine well kept real ales. The food always pleases us, the Hungarian goulash is a must try. A big plus also, it is dog friendly.

Four of us popped in on a Friday lunchtime just as a table in the bar became available; great timing! Beer selection was great and the menu was quite varied. The beer was good as was the food (rump steak sandwich, 2 goulash and a cheese sandwich). Service was quick and the bar had good atmosphere. What else could you... More

As always the food is awesome, they need a better selection of ciders and lagers, it gets busy as soon as they open so get knocking on the door at 12

Goulash ok, BLT sandwich very megre portion with only 1 piece of bacon in it. Roast beef and Yorkshire puddings very fatty, mostly inedible ( our dog ate it )Yorkshire puddings too stodgy to eat. Expensive for what we had, service was good though, no complaints there. We have been going here for years and we were disappointed on this... More
