The “Squorange”, as it’s affectionately known by locals and visitors alike, is an unexpected gem found nestled in the heart of Keswick. With a full bar, speciality coffee menu, freshly made stone baked pizzas and live music evenings; the warm and welcoming atmosphere is one you will find hard to leave!

Established in 1998, The Square Orange’s aim was to bring a taste of the continental café bar culture to the Lake District. It worked and with the help of a great team continues to work tirelessly to develop the unique fusion of Lakeland hospitality and European flavour.

With guest wines from family run vineyards, local microbreweries offered alongside Belgian and German beers, rotating coffee blends from Cumbrian roasteries as well as sourcing further afield flavours from India & South America, we pride ourselves on using a wide range of authentic and high quality suppliers.

So why not join us for a catch up with a pot of tea and a slice of cake or a cup of one of our carefully chosen coffee blends, enjoy a perfect evening with a much loved cocktail and freshly made pizza from our hot stone pizza oven or on a rainy day sit back and enjoy an eclectic mix of flavours from our European inspired tapas menu whilst competing over a game of chess. There are a whole host of experiences to be had and whether you are looking for some quiet time or an opportunity to meet or even make new friends, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Dog Friendly

No need to leave your pooches at home, The Square Orange welcomes well behaved dogs. As long as they are accompanied by their owners!


For those wet and windy lake district days we have a selection of board games to keep you occupied. Of course you are free to use them when the sun is shining as well.

Please note that whilst Covid 19 restrictions are in place, the board games will not be available to use.
