I can't understand why this has been top or second best restaurant in Keswick for the past year. It is a quirky bar, fairly friendly staff and the food is tasty. However there is a very limited pizza menu, and they are small for the...More

The square orange is 10 out of 10 for all of us. We had a great family tapas. Fine food, fine ale. The lady behind the kitchen works miracles in such a small space.
