Have stayed at the Horse and Farrier a couple of times and regularly eat there when over in the Lake District. The staff are very welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed. There is a good choice of real ales and the menu offers a wide choice with specials. The portions are large as a large number of walkers call in... More

We visited the Horse and Farrier twice last week whilst staying in Threlkeld and were really happy with the food, drinks, service and welcome that we enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and helpful seating us at a table where our pub novice dog would be comfortable. Having scoped the place out for a drink one night we returned for... More

This is one amazing pub. Beautiful old world decor, dogs allowed for that real English pub atmosphere, superb gastro quality food and really friendly efficient service. Remember to book!

We stayed in Threlkeld for a week in Sep 2015 and were a family group of 6 adults and 1 dog. My parents had used the Horse and Farrier a few times in the past and had always raved about it so we booked a table for a Friday night. Wow! Despite being busy the service was excellent and the... More

A lovely village setting not from Keswick. Me and the wife stooped here recently for a meal and it was good. The pub is a lovely style of pub serving some cask beers as well. The staff were friendly and the service overall was very decent. Will return sometime I'm sure.

Great inn nestled beneath the mountain of Blencathra in the Lake District. The room was comfortable and food excellent. I was able to happily work from the bar as the wifi was ok and the staff were very friendly and helpful

Staying nearby we just wanted to find a normal pub which it seems all the pubs have been turned in more eaterys and restaurants. We can't review the food as we just wanted a drink, so I can say was the drinks were overpriced

Stopped in for some light lunch after a couple of small Wainwrights and left a little disappointed. It wasn't all bad; the pub is a lovely old place with real atmosphere and the lady who served us was lovely. However where they really fell down was on value. We had two pints of bitter shandy and two sandwiches and it... More

Lovely country pub in the village centre. Beautiful views around from the beer garden on a sunny afternoon. Sunday lunch was excellent quality and we would recommend. Very strange rule about eating in the elevated garden section where some people were allowed food but others were told it was against the law to be served there and had to carry... More
