The Dog & Gun Pub is bang in the heart of Keswick Town Centre, a small and tall white painted building, which encases a bustling pub offering local beer and scran.

Amongst the beers were some from the Coniston Beer Company.. we tried Bluebird XB, and it was a very nice pint indeed.

The decor is traditional, tables, a few pews, beams... one interesting addition is that all the walls and beams have coins stuck / glued into them, probably over 100 across the pub!

The staff were nice and prices were average for the town.

One thing we did notice though was that it was quite cold and draughty here on an autumnal evening.

The gents toilets are outside, like many pubs in the town.

The tiling in the gents is a nice orangey / browny colour (see photo), and makes a nice change from sterile white.

A large p*ss stone dominates the room, with copper / brass piping.

Above it is a Cumbria Pub Map, and to it's left is a jonny machine.

Opposite is a two-tapped sink, with both a wall soap and a bought-in soap dispenser. The "Initial" hand dryer worked well.

The toilet cubicle was well lit, showing off well the wall tiling, there was a lot of room too. The bog is white, semi-tidyly mounted to the wall.

On hand was a cheap white loo brush, a roll holder, and several extra rolls on the cistern top.

Nice pub, 7/10.
