18/20 Cellar Bar, Dining & Rooms Outside

Superbly located in the centre of Keswick amongst the town’s lively shops, restaurants, and pubs, 18/20 Cellar Bar, Dining & Rooms offers simple yet stylish accommodation at a low cost alongside great food in a popular restaurant. This bed and breakfast is perfect for those simply looking for a place to hang up their boots each evening after a long day exploring the northern fells and lakes. The B&B is situated on Lake Road, a pedestrianised road that connects the town centre with Hope Park and the nearby Derwent Water. As a result, there is no parking available for guests of the B&B, but pay and display parking is available nearby.

The B&B is a 5-10 minute walk to the shore of Derwent Water and the Theatre by the Lake, whilst a walk to the ancient Castlerigg Stone Circle will take you approximately 35-40 minutes. Popular walking routes in the area include Latrigg, Cat Bells, the Coledale Horseshoe and Castle Crag. Nearby attractions include Lingholm Kitchen & Walled Garden and the Lakes Distillery.

Restaurants & Bars

The bar and lounge area on the ground floor has recently been refurbished and is a very popular place for visitors and local residents to dine or relax with a drink, with comfortable sofas and occasional live music. Breakfast is served here each morning, and whilst there is a limited selection for those who prefer a continental style breakfast, there is an extensive menu for cooked breakfasts, with kitchen staff happy to try and oblige if guests seek something not on the menu.

A day time menu operates until 5pm, with a good selection of wraps, baguettes, salads, and classic main dishes available. In the evenings, there is an a la carte menu featuring modern British cuisine with many ingredients sourced locally. There is also a separate steak menu.
