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.


Swinside Inn

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

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.


Kings Head

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.
