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.
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.
Excellent food and friendly pub. Lovely location for walkers and ample parking if driving.I had their roast beef that was great .This is the second time I have eaten at pub and find the head barman extremely friendly and attentive. Well done.
Nice pub feel. Not an extensive menu but all well presented and filling. Real ale pub too. Nice ambience with friendly atmosphere and staff. Will definitely return.
Great country pub, friendly, helpful staff with warm welcome and wonderful Sunday roast. Chef went out of way to cater for allergies. Highly recommended and will go back.
Very Friendly quick service and lovely food. Had the soup and fish and chips. A Lovely country pub. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
Lovely friendly pub, excellent service and food. We went for sons birthday and the landlord brought pudding with a candle on it. We had never been before but will be returning when we're next in the Lake District. We would highly recommend the Sally Inn. Thank you.
The only disappointment was that the Sunday Carvery wasn't on. However, the Sunday Roast was delicious, as were the pizzas ordered by others in our party. Chicken wing sides were also pronounced a great hit. Staff were all friendly and helpful without being overpowering or intrusive.
Interesting old place with helpful and friendly staff. Menu of typical classic pub meals. Very pleasant experience. Will return on our next visit to the area. Good if you have dogs- they are allowed in.
Great meal very friendly staff good speedy service will return again this very nice country pub. Will recommend to friends and family. Located just outside Keswick so not far to go for good food
A very friendly pub to go to and the food was excellent. The portions are enormous so you won't leave feeling hungry. Will definitely go again on our next visit.
