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

Good Beer Guide 2018Our 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

The Great Outdoors Awards 2016The Wainwright was a finalist for Pub Of The Year in The Great Outdoors Magazine Awards 2016. We were narrowly beaten by runner up, The Old Dungeon Ghyll in Langdale, behind the winner The Clachaig Inn, Glencoe. We would like to congratulate both pubs on their success.
