We stayed here with friends for a reunion. It was lovely! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. We dined here each night and had extra guests join us for one of those nights, The service was excellent. The food was varied and tasty with a good selection of beers and wine to accompany it....

Stopped for Sunday lunch and received a warm welcome. The food was lovely even offering a mixed meat option saving you the need to ask. The staff were lovely and the service equally as good. We will be returning.

One of my favourite traditional pubs in the U.K. Again a lovely meal, good portions, great friendly service, and top Jennings ale. The ambiance never lets you down either and you always feel you are at home here. See you next time.

We had a couple of meals here at the end of September. We found that the menu was very varied with something for everyone. This pub is just off the main road to Keswick and easy to find. I had the fillet steak both times as I thoroughly enjoyed the first meal, if anything the second time was even better.... More

This was our second visit to the Horse and Farrier and we booked a table online a few hours before we arrived. Staff were very accommodating upon arrival and we were shown to our reserved table by the fireplace. The atmosphere was cosy and appropriate to the setting. When ordering food, I was told that the item on the specials... More

Had lunch mid week. Very quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lunches were very tasty and the general ambience was good. We will visit again in the future.

We'd reserved a table for 8 of us, sadly some of the party were stuck in traffic. The staff could not be better! They didn't rush us to order... Happily said they could wait for our late comers and even as time was ticking explained they could even do some dishes past last service. The food was amazing and the... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Horse & Farrier Inn in Threlkeld on our recent visit to the Lake District. Warm and friendly people greeted us and took us to our table. It all came with courteous table service; the meals we had were very good, we tried the Steak & Ale Pie, Scampi and Chicken Curry and all... More

I had been out for the morning visiting Castlerigg stone circle and had been out for a long walk and needed some lunch. Found this pub purely by accident and was so glad I did, the food was fantastic, the staff friendly and the beer tasty. What more could you want for a country pub lunch.

We have eaten here several times when on holiday in the Lake District and have always found the food to be excellent and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is great and the staff are friendly and genuinely interested. As on previous visits, it was very busy, so it is always wise to book - even mid-week. I would definitely recommend for...
