Simple and Delicious!

Wandering around Keswick we found this simple little gem. We sat upstairs and we're served by lovely friendly staff. Chips were well cooked, not oily at all. Had to try to the Black Pudding in Batter which was crumbly and tasty. Great for simple meal after working up an appetite hiking!

Excellent value, good quality fish and chips in a beautifully kept dining room. Added bonus is the friendly service. Very difficult to find any fault here.

whether eating in or taking away, the Fish is has always been served fresh, with light batter and the chips are decent. But the one thing i love in the Kingfisher is the curry sauce. The food portions are of good size. The only downside to he restaurant is that it's upstairs so isn't wheelchair accessible and difficult for those... More

My husband and I had a lovely lunch in The Kingfisher. I have to go far and wide to get gluten free meals and this was fabulous. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and although this should be the norm it's not always the reality. We will be going there again.

We both went looking for fish and chips with in Keswick and after looking on trip advisor we came to two decisions. We tried this one. We ordered haddock and chips along with the "famous" large cod and Chips. Let me just start with saying that this is a LARGE fish. Very large. The chips where a good portion for... More
