This was a last minute stay, which was advised by the tourist info (which should get its own review)... we were unfortunate enough to stay in the 'family room' ... I wouldn't house my worst enemy in it. Disgusting unwashed dated coral bed covers and the sheets are brown woolen scratchy unwashed disgusting wool things ... just weird. Dated, tired,... More

We were desperately looking for a place to have lunch at an affordable price on the way to lake district and we found this pretty looking cottage inn. Food was quite good and what was mostly fascinating about it was the cozy cottage feeling with the fireplace and homely sort of arrangement. The exact place we were looking for, being... More

My son really wanted to watch his team and this pub is just the ticket for watching sports events. I didn't mind going there also to witness the local atmosphere.

We found this place by chance in the Lake District. The Mexican wrap was tasty served with hot piping chips.

if you like pina coladas and are into champagne as the song goes then maybe 'The Dogs ' is not for you .But if like me your creature comforts are more suited to decent cask beers, tasty home cooked food and a comfy bed then you could do a lot worse than stopping here . Ok it's not The Ritz... More

Probably the worst cup of coffee I have ever tasted. Turkey sandwich with chips quite edible but poorly presented with not a hint of any garnish. I have had better in a transport cafe. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Food below standard. Warm welcome which was a positive. Dated decor didn't bother us we just wanted food. Menu quite good we opted for half a roast chicken with chips and stuffing. Appearance wasnt so good the skin was pale and greasy. Chips a bit meh. The chicken was served with apple sauce for strange reason. Not a nice combination.... More

Just arrived in Keswick after a long journey towing the caravan. Saw a member of staff and asked the question, "what time do you serve food until", his reply, " we don't serve food in the afternoons". What!!! It's a main tourist area and you don't serve food! What kind of a place in 2016 does not serve food in... More

We have visited this pub on numerous occasions over the years and at least once or twice a year for the last eight years. Our most recent visit was just a few weeks ago. We have always found the pub to be an excellent all-round place to eat and drink, with an excellent reasonably priced menu that will suit every... More
