The Sally Inn – The Salutation, to give it its Sunday name – was first built in 1664, and is a prime example of the British country pub. They offer views of the Helvellyn hills, easy access to the many trails and hikes of the Lake District and a bed for the night should you want it, as well as a menu packed with traditional British favourites and locally-flavoured specialities. Take a trip out to Threlkeld – just a few miles from Keswick – and The Sally Inn on the main drag, where you can feast in time-honoured fashion. Book a table now.
Kitchen closed. Told they had phoned me to cancel. LIE. No contact by any form of communication. Will never eat at either of their restaurants again.
The staff at the Sally were more than accommodating on a busy Saturday night. We were served with our food, which was cooked well, very quickly after ordering.
Excellent food - great service - and very good value. Portion sizes were great especially enjoyed the fish and chips. Staff helpful and attentive throughout our visit
Threlkeld is hardly a swinging hotspot, but when you’ve got a history and tradition going back 500 years, you can be excused a lack of contemporary flair. The Sally Inn has stood in the centre of Threlkeld since 1664 – a pint of which you can pick up on the bar, incidentally – and their focus is very much on the heritage and tradition of the Lake District and the great British pub. The drinks are suitably local – Theakstons, Robinsons, Caledonian, as well as guest ales – and the menu is also based in the best that Keswick, the Lakes and Cumbria have to offer.
British cuisine is always at the forefront at The Sally Inn, so let us talk you through the menu on offer. Soup of the Day to start is always an option, or breaded mushrooms, followed by any number of grill specialities. The local Lakeland beef burger is always a favourite, as vegetarian favourites such as 5 bean chilli and Mediterranean vegetable lasagne so take a trip to Threlkeld on the outskirts of Keswick for a British feed to savour. Reserve yourself a table now and gather the whole family in.
