Stopped off for lunch on our journey south. Very friendly staff who were knowledgeable about gluten free. Chips are gf and they poached a piece of fish for me. Lovely meal, would eat here again.

The best chippy around mid/east Cumbria by far! Chips are always tasty and so is the fish... not many places where you can also get a proper Cumberland swirl sausage! Recommend this place to anyone! Keep up the hard work! 😋🍟🐠
