Meet some of the Fellpack team and read a little about us.

The story so far

We celebrate Lake District Adventures. It’s as simple as that.

The team has grown up here or gravitated here to chase mountain peaks and explore crystalline lakes. We divide our time between hosting customers in our restaurants, designing adventure routes and getting outdoors. These passions have allowed us to build Fellpack.

For those interested in a wee bio of the business, here goes:

We started with food, opening the Fellpack restaurant in 2017, recognising that it was a great way to introduce the Fellpack brand and vibe to customers. From a small site in the centre of Keswick we built a loyal following that kept us busy all year round and allowed us to learn on the job.

In 2019 we opened The Round, a burger and cocktail bar that fits our personality. The site is infused with our love of adventure and has led to the notion of a ‘Round from The Round’, any walk, run, cycle or water-based pursuit that starts and finishes in Keswick without needing to drive anywhere. We think Keswick is the perfect adventure town and there is so much to explore once here.

In 2021, lockdown allowed us to relocate the Fellpack restaurant to its new shiny home at the bottom of Lake Road and through the staycation frenzy we grew the team as the restaurants stayed extremely busy.

2022 allowed us to deviate into accommodation as we acquired the boutique hotel – The Hazeldene – on The Heads. It has 10 lovely rooms and gave the team a chance to combine our hospitality skills and breakfast making skills, with a new type of business. It is early days, but we have lots of interesting cross-over plans for the restaurants and the hotel.

Looking forward, we will continue to try and represent Keswick as best we can, and keep enjoying the journey that developing Fellpack affords. What this space to see what comes next!
