Fabulous fish

We went here yesterday evening, on 1 September. We followed the voicemail request to call between 2-5pm and we secured a table for the same evening. The menu is fairly limited, however each dish offers something different. We shared the Spanish fish cakes for starter which were excellent. We had... read more

We booked a table before coming to the Lake District on holiday, as I had found it on trip advisor and saw on the website that booking was essential. The service and food were exceptional. Not the cheapest restaurant in Windermere but you get what you pay for, and it was absolutely worth every penny. The atmosphere in the restaurant... More

Well can honestly say it's the first time we have been been first to arrive at opening and last to leave at closing time! We called in on the chance of a booking and there had been a cancellation, we were in luck! The food was just mouth watering, definatley a place to tell people about, the service was very... More

Owner Michael Gould fills the dining room with gleeful mirth. He has every reason to. His bistro delivers excellent seafood appetizers and fish main courses, and the toffee pudding dessert is absolutely killer. As it’s not easy to find excellent cuisine in the countryside of England, Hooked is an exception. We ate there twice in three days. Gould knows his... More

Wow, we had an amazing meal last night. We all love fish and were so pleased Hooked lived up to the hype. Service and wine selections were great. Fully booked and deservedly so. Highly recommended.

Probably not everyone's cup of tea but we really, really enjoyed going here for supper. Obviously no point in booking ( & you have to!) if you don't want to eat fish. Neither if your idea of eating fish is traditional British fish & chips cos' you won't get that either! Short menu but with a good choice. Fresh, fresh,... More

Welcoming and friendly staff. Had to book in order to get a table. The calamari was particularly special and the Marin steak was a welcomed change. Overall found it to be a little too pricey compared to other restaurants around. Personally, we found others to be a fairer price for similar quality food.

The food was perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. We stayed three nights in Windermere and this restaurant was #1 in our opinion, if you're a fish lover! The front of house/manager was attentive and very personable, he really made us feel welcome and valued. At approximately £7/starter, £21/main, £6/dessert, although this may seem a little pricey, it certainly... More

The husband and I visited Hooked last night whilst we stay in Windermere for 2 nights. We had read previous reviews but had to book a couple of weeks in advance, all I will say it was well worth waiting for. We had the Queen scallops for starters and the crab, the scallops which my husband chose were the best... More

My wife and I have visited this excellent restaurant on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food and the service provided. Hooked serves very good seafood at a reasonable cost and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it. Advanced booking is usually essential.
