This was the first time that we had eaten in a specific fish restaurant as we always seem to find the menu contains too much seafood which is not really our palette. The menu at Hooked looked ideal and just what we were looking for...plenty of different fish cooked in many different ways. We arrived slightly earlier than planned (walking... More

We recently visited Hooked on a weekend break to Windermere and wish we lived closer to allow us to return. Make sure you book to avoid disappointment this is a small restaurant with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. If you want a posh restaurant this isn't it but the food really was outstanding. Service was friendly and efficient. Easily the best... More

If only every fish chef treated their ingredients with the simple respect of this place. Not messed about with, the produce did the talking. My lemon sole with lemon butter and caper sauce was beautiful, as was the wife's sea bream with subtly spiced veg. We arrived at opening time (5.30pm) as we had our baby daughter with us, and...

We had a very pleasant experience at Hooked, the menu was very interesting, the food was excellent and the service wasn't bad either! The food is fresh and delicious, and the menu changes regularly. The restaurant itself is very simple and smart, it's not very big so be sure to book as they are always full. I would definitely recommend... More

Hi Thank you for your lovely review, I am so glad you enjoyed your meal with us. Also thank you for flagging up the price range difference. I have now corrected the issue and hope TA will be reposting the correct range by the end of the week. Look forward to seeing you on your next vist to the lakes.... More

Dined at Hooked after reading TripAdvisor and TopTable reviews. The restaurant books quickly and has only a few tables, so be sure to secure reservations. Excellent and interesting seafood options with delicious deserts. Also a surprisingly delicious (though limited) selection of white wines.

Another great meal - the range of starters on offer was tremendous, I think I could have eaten all of them and I should really have asked for 4 starters rather than a starter and main course! Saying that, the mains were great as well. So, what did we have - razor clams (or spoots) that were the best ones... More

Absolutely superb. That is all that needs to be said - Atmosphere, ambiance, service, food, wine and value for money. This place must be visited if you love fish - if you do not love fish you will after you have visited. Off the scale in terms of quality

I visited Hooked during the week and had an excellent meal. My husband had prawns and I had calamari to start, both lovely. Then I had cod with a white wine sauce and my husband roasted bream. The fish was perfectly cooked and the veg fab. Make sure you book as this restaurant is always popular.

With neither myself or my wife being fish orientated we took the chance on our honeymoon to book here. I am so pleased we did. The atmosphere was relaxed and lovely, we have both since said its one of the best experiences we have had in a restaurant as the tables were nicely spaced so you felt like you were... More

After my girlfriend left a review of our poor experience with the owner of the restaurant I have received numerous calls and texts over the past day and a half. At first they started out pleasant but then they became more insistent and towards the end just down right rude. As the previous review said the booking was messed up... More
