More about The Horse and Farrier, Keswick

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.
