Just managed to get a table here the other evening and made us realise, in all the time we’ve visited Keswick, what we’ve been missing. Fabulous place, terrific ambience, wonderful food, great wines and beers, oh...... and cocktails!! Look forward to returning here again.

This place just gets better and better. Karl, the manager, is doing a great job and the pizzas were back to their best. I love it here. It is still the best place in Keswick.
