We always visit this fish and chip shop when we are staying in Keswick. The fish is tasty and unlike many shops in the south these serve the fish without the skin (a bonus for my wife) the chips are good too. Good size portions and reasonably priced.

Came to this fish and chip shop after going to a local book launch. It was friendly, informal, warm and had fabulous food. The mushy peas and scampi were especially delicious. Don't worry if you aren't a fan of fish they do great pies and other options for children. It was quick service with a smile and very good value... More

Group of 11 of us ate in the restaurant. We were all very pleased with our meals. The chips were crisp and fluffy. I'd like to say they are the best chips in Keswick but I only ate chips here so I can't. What I can say is that carter eating here I wouldn't bother going anywhere else. Batter on... More

I am one of those people who often really fancies the idea of fish and chips but I am often dissatisfied after eating the meal. Well in this case I can say that I was totally loved it. So much so we have eaten them twice this week and that is a first for me .. Say no more!

This fish and chip shop used to be the best, in the 60`s & 70`s. Crispy light batter, with melt in the mouth fish inside, and chips done just right, ones that don`t harden and not sogged in fat. I remember it as a teenager in the early 60`s, it was ACE, but no doubt in new hands now... I... More
