About Merienda

Keswick is one of the most scenic parts of the Lake District – which in itself is up there with the most scenic parts of the United Kingdom – and in the very heart of the town, you can find Merienda on the Main Street, whose food is about as beautiful as the surroundings. They offer wholesome, uncomplicated food in a homely ambience, and you can enjoy it any time of day, from a quality morning pick-me-up (they are serious about coffee and use quality Monmouth beans) and hearty breakfast, to a range of delicious cakes and filling sandwiches, to a scintillating evening dinner menu accompanied by a range of fine wines and quality beers. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are the focus of a menu filled with British classics and dishes inspired from around the world – reserve a table and head on down.

More about Merienda, Keswick

Keswick is a jumping off point into the beauty of the Lake District, and it can provide a base camp for hikers, travellers and all kinds of tourists. If you’re planning a day walking in the hills, then you could do a lot worse than beginning your day with a breakfast at Merienda in the town centre. They offer classic British breakfast made with local favourites such as Cumberland sausage and free-range eggs, as well as more continental efforts such as baked eggs with chorizo and chickpeas, spinach and tomatoes. Swing by the Main Street in Keswick and tuck in.

The delights on offer at Merienda extend much further than just a proper British brekkie. Lunch is served from 12-3 on the Main Street in the centre of Keswick and features jacket potatoes, bocadillo sandwiches and much more, as well as a full platter of local cheeses: Bowland, Blue Monday, Trotter Hill Lancashire and Wensleydale among others. Evening meals are available too, drawing on plenty of global inspiration – burgers, butterflied chicken, baked trout and steaks are just some of the options – so book yourself a table and set a course for Merienda in Keswick.

Great cafe in the day and restaurant in the evening. Lovely food. The Victoria sponge is to die for. So light. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely food and made very welcome with 2 dogs. We went for breakfast and there was enough choice for a vegetarian with us too. Would definitely return

Nice food with a menu that makes a change from the standard fair. Service was exceptional, friendly and relaxed which meant that we chose not to take advantage of the 10% off for returning customers.

Great welcome, service and food. It’s nice to find something a little different in the Lake District. And it’s dog friendly as well! Thank you!

I've always liked Merienda's, ever since they opened their first branch in Cockermouth quite a few years ago. I'd only used the Keswick restaurant for coffee until last night (most excellent coffee, I might add!) but the meal we shared with friends was superb, and cooked to perfection. The staff were happy to sort out what I wanted with gluten and dairy removed, and there are already several gluten-free (and vegetarian) options on the menu. Decor and general ambiance excellent too. Trying to think of any minus points ... I think maybe a gluten and dairy-free dessert would have been nice - fortunately I was so full with my main course I didn't really want a pudding. (All restaurants should keep a tub of dairy free ice-cream in their freezer. Costs a couple of quid, and would make customers like me deliriously happy!) Oh, and we even spotted a celebrity at the next table! (Though tried not let him know we'd recognised him as we didn't want to spoil his evening.)

My husband and I had a lovely meal at the Merienda in Keswick. The service from the staff was great they were friendly and helpful. We had a constant supply of table water which was much needed after a full day of walking. My husband had the special steak burger which came with chunky sweet potato chips, I had the trout they were both great.. we didn't have room for dessert but they looked delicious and a very generous size! We had espressos to finish and they were full bodied and particularly good.. definitely worth a visit.

This was a first visit for my partner and I. The food was absolutely delicious and there was a good range choice, from the main menu and the specials board. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others. We will certainly be dining there again, very soon.

Whilst the food was very good, we both felt it was slightly over priced ,we waited just over half an hour for the food which was just about acceptable. The staff were very pleasant but there was a limited choice of beer , cider etc and other diners seemed to be confused about the specials and what was and wasn't available on the evening menu so they need to be clearer about that especially outside on menus, some people came in and left because of it. I don't think I'd go again for dinner but when we are back in keswick again we might try lunch. .
