Four of us called in for our Saturday evening meal. I had steak and Ale with mushroom pudding with chips and veg. The chips and veg were good the pudding lead a lot to be desired, I found one chunk of meat which turned out to be gristle and one slice of mushroom and lots of gravy. The gravy in... More

We have been a few times for meals in this pub because it allows us bring the dog with us. Excellent menu, service and staff. We have never been disappointed with the meals and service.

Lovely home cooked food. I had the beef cobbler which was delicious melt in the mouth beef with lovely vegetables, chips & a savoury scone on top. My husband had the Cumberland sausage & mash with vegetables. He loved his just as much as I loved mine.

Looking round Keswick for a Sunday lunch, came across the pack horse. Had a sign out side stating that they infact did a Sunday lunch. Our food came promptly but we were not shocked as we where the only people in there. When I saw what they call a Sunday lunch I was more than disappointed. 3 thin slices of... More

We visited the Packhorse Inn for the first time this week with friends and will certainly not be making a return visit. The interior is very dark and the decor is tired. When we got out of the restaurant we were blinded by the sunlight of the early evening. The menu is uninspired, with dishes that give it the look... More

Enjoyed meals here over the last 10 years but last time it all seemed as if things were on the wane. We decided as romantic fools to give it another try but alas wished we'd gone elsewhere. From the grumpy barman (bearded tattoo man) and generally indifferent staff to the stodgy food this will have been our last visit. Chips... More

We have previously eaten in this pub and thought it was ok, so when we returned to Keswick for a visit we decided we would eat here again, I wish we hadn't bothered!! Keswick was busy, there was lots of people around, but when we walked into the pub there was not a soul in the whole place, apart from... More

Really enjoyed the Pack Horse for food. All the food here was hot and we couldn't fault it in any way. Good choice of real ales too. Dinig area , especially upstairs, has really nice feel. Service is excellent. Wood definately eat here again. Does pub food really well - lamb shank, burgers, fish and chips. Relaxed dining

Thank TheWhites-123
