Keswick Spanish Tapas restaurant opens after building damaged in 2015 floods

La Rosa Roja Wine and Tapas has opened its doors to the public again following the recent purchase of the building by a local Keswick couple in December 2018.

The building which has been closed and left derelict for three years following Storm Desmond in 2015 has been completely remodelled and major flood resilience measures have been installed to ensure protection against future flooding.

Located on the edge of the Town Centre opposite the Pencil Museum in Keswick with views of Skiddaw and the surrounding fells this now 100 seat Spanish Tapas restaurant promises to add something new to the town and somewhere special for diners to eat and drink.

An outside heated and lit dining area has been added to take advantage of the stunning views. It has a dedicated area for cocktails and wine in its Tapas Tavern from its extensive wine list and perhaps a light bite, a large dining room complete with wine cave and Charcuterie as well as a further lounge area with comfy sofas to relax on.

Having a late license and live music license in place the couple hope to host music and social events that will create a real buzz for locals and visitors alike.

The kitchen is an open kitchen so diners can see the team of chefs cooking the tapas dishes in the state of the art totally gas free kitchen.

A team of grafitti artists was brought in to adorn the long walkway down the corridor with a Spanish themed mural.

With staff being recruited from Keswick and its surrounding areas La Rosa Roja is a fantastic addition to the town and plans to achieve accolades for its food and dining experience in the not so distance future.
