Where to eat, drink, rest & recuperate during your Lake District walk

There are many walks within the vicinity of Keswick which take in the delights of a good pub or cafe en route. Below are a few examples which we have all taken advantage of, usually at the end of a gruelling hike! Before setting off on your trip pop into Lunch or Brysons on the Main Street to stock up on sandwiches, pies, cakes and drinks:



Flock Inn at Yew Tree Farm, Rosthwaite, Borrowdale - Famed for herdi-burgers, pints of tea and spectacular Borrowdale views. Prince Charles always stays here when visiting the area


Shepherds Caff, Borrowdale Valley - Legendery cafe set under Sheperds Crag (beside Borrowdale Hotel). Great basic food at fantastic prices. Stuff your face for a fiver! Great views and a fine way to spend a few hours of the day!


The Langstrath Country Inn, Stonethwaite, Borrowdale - A great choice of high quality dishes (ie. duck, local lamb, Borrowdale trout, homemade produce etc)


The Yew Tree, Seathwaite (bottom of Honister), Borrowdale - Nice cafe, good ice cream and serves evening meals


Nichol End Marina, Portinscale - Homemade cakes and lunches on the shore of Derwentwater. Nichol End is also a stop for the Keswick Launch (if you fancy a quick route back to Keswick!)


Swinside Bar, Swinside, Newlands - Panoramic views of Newlands valley. Nice old beamed pub. Good food and drink


Coledale Inn, Braithwaite - Sits at the bottom of the Coledale Horseshoe. Good place to start or end your walk
