We visited here with friends after a walk around the lake. Food was very good. They are famous for their Hungarian goulash... and rightly so. We were introduced to some good gins too!

During a weeks stay at Keswick, we stopped at the Dog and Gun, twice. On both ocassions we had the large portion of their wonderful Goulash. The pub is dog friendly and the atmosphere is great.

Always busy & buzzing lil place. Good comfortable layout. Cosy enough to enter on my own. Beer kept well. Always a good pint. Good recommendation on him too. Goulash tasty & small portion sufficiently filling after a day on the hills.

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