Called in for a drink and ended up having a cream tea. The scones were warm and delicious. Served with heaps of thick clotted cream and lovely thick jam. The tea was hot and we sat in a very clean bar area.

Where better to dine in Keswick than at the Skiddaw Hotel’s spacious, air-conditioned restaurant set in the centre of Keswick.An oasis of calm, the discreet and stylish interior decor perfectly complements the new table d'hote, and a la carte menus prepared with loving care by our head chef and his team.Recognized for high standards of service and cuisine, our dishes feature the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional, using fresh, local ingredients. The restaurant is also renowned for its wide selection of fine wines and cheeses, particularly Skiddaw Damson Cheese, which is made especially for the hotel.
