The Round Logo

Great burgers, beers and cocktails. A fun and friendly atmosphere awaits in the heart of Keswick.

Welcome

Situated in Keswick’s iconic Market Square, The Round sits on the footsteps of the Moot Hall. This is hallowed turf. This is where Billy Bland, Kilian Jornet and 2,000 other bold souls have started, and finished, The Bob Graham Round. A mere 42 peaks and 28,000 feet of ascent, in less than 24 hours.

Yet whilst we toast such a feat, we believe any Round deserves celebrating; however hard. Finished the Bob Graham Round? Welcome hero! Been round Derwent Water? Well played, what are you drinking? Looped round the Keswick shops? Come in for a break, and get some food!

To celebrate Lake District adventuring we make great tasting burgers, using local ingredients, home-made sauces and inventive twists on classic combinations. Our cocktails are crafted with love and we have a wide enough selection to suit all tastes. Failing that, our beers, wines and soft drinks should have you covered.

Great burger place in the centre of Keswick. Busy and buzzing on Friday night but no problem getting a table for 4 at... 6pm. The menu is essentially burgers with a variety of, sometimes over the top, extras. Fries and sides of maximum calorific value plus two dessert options.Wide cocktail menu and variety of drinks. Friendly and enthusiastic staff. Dog friendly. Not a tonne of elbow room but you won't be there all that long so not an issue.USP: burger buns have the logo branded into them! Plus a loose fell running theme a là Bob Graham.read more

Service was great, variety of burgers was good, the Sweet Potato fries were the best l have ever had. Reasonably priced and will call again next time we are in Keswick.read more

We popped in for burgers on a Friday afternoon. It was busy but we were seated pretty quickly. Service wasn’t... particularly friendly but it was fine.We ordered a burger each and fries. The fries were fine but nothing special. The burgers came pretty quickly but were both undercooked. There was no warning of this on the menu as there should have been, in line with Food Standards Agency rules on undercooking of burgers. When I raised this when the staff came over they said we should have told them we wanted them thoroughly cooked. To spin this round on to the customer is pretty appalling. The burgers and fries were removed from the bill but we were asked to pay for our drinks still and I didn’t want to have further debate. I just wanted to find somewhere else to eat.Overall, very poor. Service wasn’t good. Food was inedible. I wouldn’t return here if you paid me.read more

Decent burgers, but nothing special. Interesting cocktails. Plus we were sat at a table with dog pee underneath (they... cleaned it though after a while). We visited on a very busy weekend, perhaps, off peak could have been a better experience.read more

Excellent burger restaurant. Great range of burgers, very tasty. Great atmosphere and service. There is usually a queue... outside but even on a busy day it only took 15 minutes to get seated. Well worth the wait if you want a good burger, good atmosphere and good service.read more

Lovely place to grab a burger, didn't have to wait to get a table on a Friday, service was quick and the waiter was... helpful and polite.Would say that the burger was a little bit dry and a generic patty made up with the extra toppings to add flavour. Probably no need for the extra patty even if you're starving.Definitely go for the sweet potato fries probably the best ones we have ever had. And the mocktail was delicious.It is also dog friendly which is great.read more

Excellent staff and the food,boy the food.The burgers are something else and the chilli loaded fries made a perfect... companion.You could get cheaper bugers elsewhere but I guarantee they won't be as tasty. You get what you pay for and we visited twice in 4 days so in my book the food here is worth every penny. An easy 5 star rating.read more

Fantastic burgers at The Round. Do not hesitate due to not booking, we went and they easily got us in on a busy Friday... evening. Even the queue to wait goes down quickly. If it's a nice evening they have outdoor seating at the back, but also heaters when it gets chilly in the evenings.Tasty food, nice beers, great service, value for money!Cannot fault it! Will be back asap!!read more

Super place to eat and drink! Perfectly situated outdoor section for sunny weather and a good choice of burgers and... drinks to choose from. The home made pickle was delicious and the mocktails washed the burgers n fries down delightfully on the sun warmed terrace! Welcoming and attentive customer service... this place is going to be super popular for 2022 summer season!read more

We said we weren't coming here this time, let's try somewhere else ..... then we said let's just have a coffee.......... then we set a 2 hour time limit for cocktails 🍸 😎 before you know it I was trying the ones I haven't had before, pink lady and toffee apple. Both fabulous, not too sweet and look pretty too.read more

Nice, relaxed feel serving top notch burgers We came in early doors straight from walking Skiddaw, via the Keswick... Brewery Tap (whose beer is also sold here). Staff happy for us to pile in in walking boots & with rucksacks for much needed grub. Double on the burger patty after a long day on the fells - yum!read more

Great menu, good drink selection. The food we ordered was lovely. Only comment I could make and I'd be being over... critical here, just a note, is that the two different meals we got off the mains section were significantly different in size.read more

In the heart of Keswick Town centre, The Round offers a small but tasty menu. The fries are to die for, so delicious... 😋It's based on two floors for drinks & dinning, a good place for cocktails, wines & spirits.read more

I decided to go for a quick drink on Friday night at 10.20 after visiting other establishments. The place was full and... we sat at the bar before managing to find a free table. There were four staff members at the bar and no-one said anything to us until we got a table and was then informed that they had already called last orders because it was quiet. Last orders was advertised as 11 and the bar only had one free table which I would consider to be busy. Very disappointing service.read more

Great burgers at a good price. Excellent service. If you like burgers definitely the place to go in Keswick. Given the... location outside the Moot Hall, I loved the fact they had running vests on the ceiling, photographs of fell runners on the wall, and a video of Joss Naylor projected onto the wall. All in all a really great placeread more

There is a reason why The Round is non stop busy. The burgers are top notch, the drinks selection is wide and varied,... the atmosphere is buzzing. The main reason this place works so well is the staff who work their socks off to serve hundreds of people who keep queuing to get in. By far the best and busiest eatery in Keswick. Well worth a visit.read more

Burgers were amazing, side dishes of sweet potato fries and mac'n'cheese were both lovely and the cocktails were really... nice as well. Staff were super friendly. Really nice decoration and atmosphere and the toilets have the best wallpaper around. I've run out of adjectives to describe how much we enjoyed ourselves, and we'll definitely be going again. Thanks team.read more

The Round serves excellent sweet potato fries. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. If you order fries on its... own, be mindful that you’ll get a lot of them. Cheese and bacon topping is nice, but a little bit too much. The burgers are good, the vibe is great, service is excellent. You’ll feel very welcome there.read more

Really welcoming, excellent drinks menu including some of my favourite cocktails. Superb food & happy to customise... meals & cater for our dairy allergies. If you’re not a burger person, order the chicken & swap out the bun for an amazing salad. Generous portions. Everyone full & happy. Thanks so much to the team @ The Round.read more

Very friendly service and superb quality burgers and fries. We were unable to book but being a fast food restaurant a... table became available quickly. The menu isn't static, they have a burger of the month which I imagine changes every 4 weeks or thereabouts. One of the few restaurants I've been to that manages to get sweet potato chips properly crispy. I'll definitely return next time I'm in Keswick. Dog friendly.read more

Very very impressed. They know about good service and made us feel really welcome. The food is great quality and there... is plenty of it. The amazing sauces are an excellent added bonus to a delicious meal. They have a unique selection of cocktails that are all freshly made with proper ingredients (no bagged cocktails here). There’s a really lively atmosphere and you are not rushed to leave your table and can sit as long as you like. We have been twice and have not been disappointed. It has a cosmopolitan feel but the Lake District is still at the heart of their decor, making it a really welcoming and unique place.read more
