We finally managed to get a table here after coming to the Lakes for many years as it is so popular. You need to book early to avoid disappointment as it gets booked up very quickly. The fish dishes are lovely very fresh and full of flavour. Not the cheapest place to eat but if you want quality and a... More

Me and my girlfriend were recommended this restaurant after my sister and brother in law went there last year. It was our 2 year anniversary so wanted a special meal to celebrate this and I must say special is what we received!!!! A great layout so that you are not sitting on top of other tables was a great thing... More

Try the calamaris for starters, its well cooked and you certainly get plenty of it. The batter is lovely and light and it comes with a nice garlic mayo although I think they could add a little more garlic as it was quite bland. The cod I found to be too soft and with no real flavour, the tiger prawns... More

We'd read good reviews about Hooked and were keen to try some fresh fish. The food was delicious and neither my partner or I didn't want the meal to finish. The atmosphere was really wonderful and Michael was a very friendly and attentive host. Would most definitely visit again.

I haven't even been able to wait 24 hours to do this review. We have been meaning to visit this little fish restaurant for quite some time being frequent visitors to the lakes and it was definitely worth the wait. The service was excellent the owner is so welcoming and the food fantastic....I had the scallops to start followed by... More

We almost missed our much looked forward to reservation due to a 5 hour journey via the horrid M6, however we called Michael to update him on our progress and he couldn't have been more helpful! When we eventually arrived Michael and his team were most accommodating, making sure that we could relax after the mad dash to get there.... More

We once again had a fantastic meal at hooked. This was our third visit and we're once again not disappointed. The only problem you'll have is what to select as you'll want every dish. If you are a fish lover you'll not be disappointed!

Recommended by the lovely Emma at Rum Doodle B&B I was lucky that Michael found me a table in his great restaurant. Like a well oiled machine the food arrived perfectly timed and perfectly cooked. The Black Bream was superb and the cheeseboard an excellent finish to a fantastic evening.
