Food is king :-)

I knew how popular it was from a previous visit - so booked a table (not easily) for 8pm on a saturday night.

Table nicely reserved.

They had no food.

7 ales across the 8 hand pumps on, on my Tuesday evening visit to this popular dog friendly pub at top of the high street. This is the only pub in the town that appears in the 2016 GBG.

The ales on were split between nationals and locals with 2 from Keswick Brewery and another Cumbrian Ale. I went for a pint of Kirkby Lonsdale's Rushkins @ 3.9%.

The Dog and Gun is well known for its good food and this is certainly where it makes it's money, the place was packed with almost everyone eating or having eaten dinner. We ate here last year and the food was good.

Nicely decorated inside with flag stone and wooden flooring throughout, open range fireplace at one end and pictures of Keswick and Derwent Water on the walls.

A very good pub but beware food is king.

The Dog and Gun is the only pub in Keswick that appears in the 2015 GBG and after my visit I can see why.

Only the 2nd pub of my visit but already it seems hard to beat.

A very nice welcome from the 2 barmaids as we enter and I'm immediately faced with an array of 8 hand pumps offering a great selection of cask ales. I go for the locally brewed Keswick Brewery Woof and Bang @ 3.6%.

All the tables in the pub are laid for food and it's certainly popular. I don't normally eat in pubs but the wife and I did on this occasion and it certainly did not disappoint, hearty portions at good value.

Dogs are welcomed and there's even dog treats for sale at the bar for a £1 a bag.

Very well decorated inside and has that overall welcoming feel to it, hence why its so popular and food is of course key to that.

Very good pub but it really is food orientated that is saved from a slightly lower score by having a large choice of ales that are well kept.

A very popular and lively pub which is great comfort after a long day's walk in the fells. 8 hand pumps on - 6 were local from Cumbria including 3 from Keswick. Keswick Landlord's Choice particularly good. If you want to try the famous Goulash then get in early as by the time I had a few beers and wanted to eat the goulash had run out - clearly very popular. Dog and Gun well worth a visit.
