A small but cosy bar with excellent staff and the best pizza we've had for years. Will definitely be back.

Great quirky cafe bar lots of choice of drinks from speciality coffees to locally sourced ales. However the star of the show is the pizza ...amazing base and ingredients one to stop off at lunchtime or evening.

An easy place to miss but worth tracking down if you like your coffee and cake. An added bonus is a couple of well kept local real ales

4 of us ate here this week. Olives, nachos, soup and pizzas. All good. They did forget my pizza but it was all sorted quickly and they didn't charge me for it. Good beers and cocktails and nice chilled atmosphere.

Stupendously fabulous - best Rarebit ever, fine beer and wine and the Pizzas, well The pizzas - they have the thinnest crispest bases this side of Napoli. Top atmosphere too. Will be back when back in Keswick 👍😉 x

As the title says, what's not to like about the Square Orange. Brilliant Neapolitan style pizzas combined with a few tasty tapas from a well crafted menu. A good selection of beers and hospitable staff. Its not very big and they don't take reservations, so...More
