The Lake District has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom, and the attractions are pretty obvious. There is the spectacular scenery and the myriad hill-walking activities, but what we’d like to concentrate on when talking about The Horse and Farrier in Keswick is the food and drink, of course, and in that regard they’re worth a visit alone. They offer the best in British and Cumbrian cuisine to Threlkeld, with a menu and a bar that puts the local region front and centre of their business. Reserve yourself a table now.

Very efficient and friendly service. All Covid safety arrangements very good. Food quality very good. Fairly pricey but I think that’s fair enough given the present situation. Have booked for later in the week. 😀
Fab service, cracking beer and good food! Nothing not to like!
Fabulous food, my husband very fussy with food if not hot will send back ect I usually warn waiters but no need to here. Food not only hit delicious flavour combinations and tasty.
On the slopes of Blencathra in the village of Threlkeld, The Horse and Farrier pub has stood for over 300 years. In that time, they’ve picked up a thing or two about hospitality and cooking, and they’ve built themselves a reputation for excellence in both food and drink that goes much further than Keswick and Cumbria. The style is very much informed by the region – a full range of Jennings Lakeland beers are there behind the bar – and the menu is rooted in British traditions and the local ingredients that are readily available.
Start your meal at The Horse and Farrier with a few British pub classics – we’d go for the breaded garlic mushrooms or the Farrier prawn cocktail – before moving on to something from the grill. Traditional Cumberland sausage is always a favourite in Keswick, as is the Lakeland beef burger, and for vegetarians, there is a bean and celery chilli or a mushroom stroganoff. Book a table at The Horse and Farrier in Threlkeld and make the most of this Cumbrian institution in the heart of the Lake District.
