Welcome to The Wainwright
The Wainwright is a traditional pub on Lake Road in Keswick town centre. We refurbished the old 'Four In Hand' over the Winter of 2014/15 and opened at the end of April 2015. We are dog friendly, having oak floors throughout, and hope to provide a relaxing atmosphere for the casual tourist as well as the committed user of the Fells.
We are proud to provide up to eight real ales, all from Cumbrian breweries.
CAMRA Good Beer Guide
Our dedication to Cumbrian real ales was rewarded by our selection as runner up in the West Cumbria branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) Pub of The Year 2016 award. We are also delighted to be chosen for inclusion in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for 2018 and are the only pub in Keswick town centre to be selected.
The Great Outdoors POTY 2017
We are very proud to have been nominated as one of a shortlist of 12 contenders for The Great Outdoors magazine's UK Pub of The Year 2017 award. Unfortunately, this year we were unsuccessful. Thank you very much to everyone who voted for us, and our heartiest congratulations go to the winner, The Clachaigh Inn in Scotland..
