We wrote a whole post about the 5 Best Pubs in Keswick and the Surrounding Area. However we then decided to ask our customers on our facebook page for their favourite beer soaked carpet pubs in the surrounding area and got a great response. So here is a list of pubs, not compiled by us, but our loyal customers who rigorously and regularly check all the best pubs in the county for us.
Dog and Gun
A firm favourite. The pies and goulash are a particular hit with our guests!
The Pheasant Inn
Regularly topping the best pub grub in Keswick polls, it’s selection of cask ales help make this a real winner.
The Royal Oak
Warm, cosy pub with big comfortable armchairs! Like most places in Keswick, it’s also dog friendly.
An award winning independent pub with a wide selection of real ales.
If you’re a fan of a good pub quiz then head down to the Packhorse. It usually runs a quiz every Wednesday, but call ahead and double check!
Horse and Farrier
Nestled at the foot of Blencathra the Horse and Farrier is great rural pub if you’re coming in along the A66 from Penrith.
A favourite with both ourselves and guests this pub feels like it’s in the heart of the Lakes. At the bottom of Cat Bells, nestled in the Newlands Valley, Swinside offers not just a great traditional pub atmosphere, but also a spectacular panormaic view of the surrounding fells.
White Horse Inn
If you want a rustic Cumberland pub; this is the place. Slightly off the beaten tourist track it’s a great place for a post Blencathra hike pint.
If you’ve just climbed Helvellyn then this’ll be the first pub you come to, making it the perfect place for a celebratory pint!
The UK is famed all over the world for our traditional country pubs. With the old wood beams, comfortable chairs (or bar stool) and a menu where you can guarantee some classic dishes (think fish and chips, burgers and pies).
We’re very lucky to have so many great pubs so close to us. In fact the Eden district (which we are just 1 mile from) was voted the UKs number 1 place to live, in part by the high ratio of pubs per person. That’s the kind of stat we like.
This list is just a quick one and covers a range of pubs, from the ones in Keswick to the surrounding area.
The Swinside Inn is probably one of our favourite pubs in the area. At the foot of Cat Bells and with panoramic views all around the Newlands Valley it’s the perfect country pub for lunch or tea (dinner for the southerners).
Dog and Gun
It might well be a Green King Pub, but it’s a good one. A firm favourite of our guests. Very dog friendly and delicious food, right int he middle of Keswick
The Wainwright is a cracking independent pub right in the middle of town. Boasting an mind boggling array of local ales it’s the perfect place to enjoy a post walk pint.
The Pheasant Inn
It would be very hard to beat the Pheasant Inn, Keswick for food. This cosy 17th Century pub is a short stroll from the centre of Keswick and a perfect place for an evening meal of Sunday lunch option. Get your booking in early to avoid dissapointment.
The Kings Head at the foot of Helvellyn and Dunmail Raise is the ideal place for a celebratory end of day pint. Just a couple of miles from Low Nest put your feet up in front of the roaring fire and enjoy the ambience of this old Inn, which was once a vital stop before and after travelling over Dunmail Raise.
