Always a treat to eat here. Service is great - my friend who can't eat wheat was catered for without any problem. Spotlessly clean and welcoming, we cannot fault this place. The food is freshly cooked and offers great value for money.

Have used this place for years but after my last couple of visits will not be using it again.. As a Keswick local it's a bit annoying paying "tourist prices" but even more so when somewhere lets the quality slip so much. The fish was the size of a kids portion and tasted of nothing but salt. £17 for a... More

A must stop for fish and chip lovers. The food was excellent and I really enjoyed my fish goujons and chips. Best chips in the area. The service was fantastic and they were so friendly. They allowed us to leave our pushchair downstairs and quickly got us a high chair for our daughter. Lovely visit as always.

Back again for another fantastic meal, you can't beat the Keswickian for Fish & Chips when you visit Keswick, I've never had a poor meal there and I must have visited the restaurant about twenty times. Great service and the food isn't expensive. The only down side to this visit was that I decided to have a small bottle of... More

We both ordered cod and chips in the cafe part of the Old Keswickian. Our meals came after a few minutes, and were piping hot (as you'd expect really). Good portion size too. We've had fish and chips here several times and it's always been good. The takeaway part is very busy, and is probably a destination in itself for... More
