Keswick is one of the most scenic parts of the Lake District – which in itself is up there with the most scenic parts of the United Kingdom – and in the very heart of the town, you can find Merienda on the Main Street, whose food is about as beautiful as the surroundings. We offer wholesome, uncomplicated food in a homely ambience, and you can enjoy it any time of day, from a quality morning pick-me-up (We are serious about coffee and use quality Merienda's exclusive espresso blend from Darkhouse Coffee Roasters, Keswick) and hearty breakfast, to a range of delicious cakes and filling sandwiches, to a scintillating evening dinner menu accompanied by a range of fine wines and quality beers. Fresh, seasonal ingredients are the focus of a menu filled with British classics and dishes inspired from around the world – reserve a table and head on down.

    A wonderful evening made by combination of excellent food, world class service with a smile and we also made some new American friends made in friendly, comfortable surroundings. This is a really good place for a nice meal, thoughtfully prepared and served. Five stars. Neil & Michelle Cousins

    Fantastic staff who were very accommodating and provided quick and friendly service. Dining environment was wonderful and quiet enough for our dog to sleep whilst still keeping a nice ambience. Food and drinks were really high quality and very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.

    I had baked trout which came with some kind of sticky and not very nice sauce poured over. Having discarded the skin I found the fish meat to be quite tasteless. Service was not very attentive and we had to ask to place our dessert order and to pay our bill. I would not recommend.

    It would have been better, keeping the fact that young children needs more options for the food. My daughter is not a fan of sausages. So what she Te was potato wedges with gravy. There wasn't any chicken or cod available for her to complement the food .

    The food and service were really good. Unfortunately there was a complete lack of atmosphere. We would recommend the food but, if you’re looking for ambience, it’s not the place to go.

    Starters and main course were fantastic. The fondue dessert had room for improvement -honeycomb was burnt and churros overcooked. Would go back, but wouldn't order the dessert again.

    Excellent food as always. Return every year on our visit to Keswick. The best meal of the week. The only issue we had was that the restaurant was overly warm and felt quite airless..... We will be back.

    Fantastic meal, fish cooked to perfection and veg slightly al dente - just how we like it. Chocolate brownie with double Jersey ice cream was a delight. The lady serving us was attentive, but not fussy and very pleasant - couldn't fault the service either. Hope to go in again later in the week! Thanks
