About Twa Dogs Inn

The Twa Dogs Inn is a traditional Lakeland Pub, renowned throughout Keswick as having the best kept beers in the town as well as being one of the best value pubs.

After a day of enjoyment out on the fells, you can relax in our dining area which offers a wide range of home cooked food available off our menu and the special's board. In the winter months we have an open coal fire to keep you warm.

The Bar & Games Room

At the bar we have a wide range of draught beers, wine and lagers, plus soft drinks and bottled beers. In the summer months we have five different Jennings real ales which you can sample to suit your liking, then have the craic with the friendly locals who are always willing to give any information you require.

In the games room you can find pool, darts and dominos, or browse our collection of football shirts, scarves and local photographs.


We have a large beer garden which is boardered with an award winning flower display. Here you can gaze at the surrounding fells and watch the beautiful Cumbrian sunset.

The Twa Dogs Inn is well known for our charity fund raising. Over the years several local organisations have benefited from our fund raising events. This has been recognised by Marstons brewery, as we have been Community Pub of the Year runners-up on three seperate occasions. Other awards we have are Keswick in Bloom winners seven times, highly commended twice and Jenning Golden Host Pub of the Year runners-up.
