We went to the George as we had stayed there last year and had some good meals, however on this occasion we could only give the meal a 5 out of 10 as the fish was coated in a very heavy batter. The chips and peas ok. Plate hot (important )

Lovely staff, great food. Good value. Large portions. All these positives are reflected by the fact that it is often full and booking is to be recommended. The pies are not for the faint hearted ....anyone finishing a half portion of the famous cow pie deserves an award! Will be back and would definitely recommend.

An average pub meal. Portions of chop& veg were reasonable & the pies were big but there were only 9 bits of scampi to a portion. It's still a good pub but something missing to what it used to be.

Booked a table for two on Easter Sunday and glad we did as the dining room was packed out. No wonder the place is rammed, the food is delicious and there's lots of it. I went for the farmhouse pie with chips, which was delicious. Good atmosphere and service.

Lovely, huge pies. Chips lovely. Dog friendly. Good ale. Terribly busy. Could do with a seating system! Dogs not allowed in the restaurant area, so it was a struggle to find a table.

It's been a few years since we lasted visited the George and it was just as good as I remember. The half pie is massive but really tasty and well cooked. The chips are amazing as well!

Great pub, friendly staff and excellent locally sourced food. This place sits at the top of town and is also a hotel but you wouldn't know from the outside. It's a charming old building which has a lovely roaring fire for the cold days and allows dogs, which most pubs in Keswick do. I can't comment on the hotel side... More
