Only ever had a beer in here but great bar and a great pint. The food always looks good and will defiantly try in the new year when we visit the lakes again

Ate here today, decided to try a HALF PORTION! of the cow pie, couldn't believe the size of the portion, Huge! And it wasn't just the size, it was lovely, meat was so tender, and the "proper" chips it was served with were great. Couldn't imagine attempting the full cow pie!

After reading so many positive reviews about the cow pie we decided to try this restaurant on a recent visit to Keswick.. What a disappointment, the meat (calling it meat is being polite!!), was fatty and grisly to the point of being inedible. The pastry was soggy underneath whilst the top I could not get my knife through it, it... More

We received a warm welcome and were promptly served at the bar and then guided to our tables. The drinks are very good in the George , a good range and... More

We booked a table for dinner at the George having eaten there previously. Restaurant was a warm and comfortable experience as weather was freezing outside. Food beautifully cooked and service attentive but not intrusive. Will certainly revisit!

I have been passed this pub many a time over the years and do not know why we have never eaten there. On a recent trip to the lakes i decided to book something in keswick centre and this place caught my eye. It's not a bad price for an old pub and the rooms were pretty big and clean... More

Popped in without making a booking (but would recommend you book ) and were lucky to get a table following a cancellation. The pub is a little dated and of olde worlde charm and honestly doesn't reflect the quality of the service and food. We had starters which were of generous size and mains which were equally generous! The food... More

travelling alone and booking only 2 days ahead I telephoned the George for accommodation. I was told to ring back when the manager was available and if I asked nicely he may be able to help ! given that the hotel website showed 9 rooms available out of a total of 12 tends to suggest a problem with management or...
