On a very wet day in Keswick we were lucky to happen upon this little gem. My husband says it was the best steak pie he every had. I enjoyed a lamb burger and my Sister the chicken pie. All very delicious.

3 of us (adults) ate here on a Saturday night in February. The food (when it eventually came) was quite tasty but the staff and speed of service were very poor.
