Will Larter left this review about Dog & Gun

Despite the fact that this pub attracts dogs and their human companions in large numbers, I still like it. Since my last visit there has been a bit of a makeover, with what looks to be a new or renovated bar counter (with hooks!) and all but one of the settles that previously provided most of the seating now gone. These changes have made the pub lighter and perhaps more welcoming, though also perhaps losing some of its traditional appeal in the process. There are eight hand pumps arrayed along the bar counter (see photos), and I tried both the Keswick Thirst Noel 6% (which seemed sweeter than I remembered it from previous Christmas visits) and Eden Brewery's Cumbrian Black, a 3.6% mild that was so good I had a second half - partly because I enjoyed the first one so much, and partly to prove to the slightly inebriated chap stood at the bar that I was definitely not drinking Guinness.

Aqualung . left this review about Dog & Gun

This place turned out to be pretty well rammed on a claggy half term Wednesday afternoon. It's a wide open plan area with a wooden floor.
The bar has eight hand pumps and it was just too busy to note all the beers but I did spot Old Peculier, GK IPA, Ennerdale Darkest & Raspberry Pale, Keswick KSB and Woof & Bang and Derwent Marshall Port Stout. I went for the KSB which wasn't too clear and didn't taste that great.
I wonder if this pub is a victim of it's own success. I much preferred the Wainwright down the road.

I knew how popular it was from a previous visit - so booked a table (not easily) for 8pm on a saturday night.

Table nicely reserved.

They had no food.
