What a find this restaurant was!
Nothing special about the surroundings, but very clean and comfortable with a view across the town square.
Friendly, pleasant service, and the food arrived very quickly.
We both had cod, chips and mushy peas. The cod was very fresh and tasty, covered in feather light crispy batter, done to perfection. The chips were also perfectly cooked, hand cut, crispy and dry, just like they should be!
A good range of sauces on the table, capped off with a bill, with drinks, for a shade under £20.
Best fish and chips we've ever had, anywhere, we will definitely be back next time we visit!

Great chippie in the centre of Keswick. Old fashioned decor but delicious scampi and chips. Restaurant upstairs very homely. Great value for money - Large portions served.

We went in to the fish and chip takeaway at 11pm we were'nt drunk or making a nuisance of ourselves , the elderly man that was serving asked in an abrupt manor what do you want and when we said we wanted Mozzella dippers and chips he said in abrupt manor that they would be 5 mins , he might of been tired but the shop is'nt supposed to shut until 11:45 , mind on the other hand the chips were the best I have tasted in a while and the mozzarella dips and garlic sauce were lovely , so I would still go back and hopefully the bad service was just a one off .

Fish & Chips to eat in or take away; we chose to eat in the licensed restaurant which was clean and comfortable upstairs to the take-away. A relaxed atmosphere awaits in the restaurant which is a bit less than a restaurant but much more than a cafe. The staff are friendly and helpful and you get good, honest food at an exceptionally reasonable price.

Central location ,clean and tidy ,food cannot be bettered whether a full scrumptious meal or a light bite. You can use the take away or dine in style upstairs. However if an old codger and any flight of stairs resemble the north face of The Eiger as stairs do to me you can dine on the ground floor adjacent to the take away, where you will be greeted and expertly served by the lovely Melissa. If in this neck of the woods be sure and don't miss this, it's areal treat.
