Shared 2 starters, good price and great service. We were only here for lunch but will definitely return in the evening during our next visit to Keswick.

We come to Keswick 2 or 3 times per year and have done for 2 decades and more. The Dog and Gun is our favourite pub. Such a disappointment, therefore, that it seems to have declined in recent years. No hot drinks on this snowy...More

Portion size was tiny, wouldn’t fill a sandwich. Normally eat at the Oddfellows Arms which is gods value for money.

I have had the Goulash several times now, it's just what you need on a cold day. Only had the small portion, don't know if I could eat all the large.

Friday night was definitely dog night and the pub had a good atmosphere. We didn’t eat tonight but we’ve eaten many times before. Good selection of drinks and a friendly atmosphere with open fires make it a good local pub.
