I booked a week in advance, before going away to Windermere. After e-mailing Michael, he telephoned me immediately to confirm our booking. Excellent service and such a lovely friendly gentleman. We arrived at hooked promptly and were greeted with a lovely warm welcome. The food is to die for, freshly cooked and delicious! Try the swordfish, a real treat! Thankyou... More

Myself and my wife reserved a table and we are so glad we did. The food is great and so is the Aussie owner who makes you very welcome. We shared an octopus starter and then had mullet and sole dishes. All superb. The dessert was great- sticky toffee pudding. Washed down with a bottle of Gavi. The prices are... More

Having read the reviews, my wife and I were very keen to visit so we booked a reservation for Friday night and we are so glad we did. Great initial service and a lovely atmosphere made us feel immediately comfortable. The food itself was wonderful and we both had very memorable dishes. Classic Mussels, Thai Fishcakes, Seafood Paella and whole... More

We really enjoyed our evening at Hooked. Some of the best fish dishes either of us have eaten anywhere. I loved the sea trout. Its a very simple restaurant formula which Michael has created but it works well. Service is personal and engaging and adds to the experience. Booking essential as is a love of fish ( there are no...

Great little restaurant serving fish, great choices, which change regularly, the owner is informative and passionate about the food he serves. Be warned, no fish & chips here if any kind, not suitable for young children I would say, not for meat eaters either, love fish and this is the place for you. Good wine choices available. Necessary to book... More

I have to say that although the food was rated as good the owner was not. However we went to hooked for 6.30 booking, we were welcomed by the owner, shown to our... More

It's a while since we have visited hooked, because of commitments, but, we can say that the fish menu is one not to miss, very enjoyable. A must for all fish eaters.

We ate here on Saturday and it was exquisite. We felt at home in an area we are not familiar with and Michael took the time to explain about the wines and how we could compliment the meal with the right choice. The food was very special and our only gripe was the cheese board was a little sweaty. Try... More

Glad I found this hidden little gem. Was greated on entry to the restaurant and had a pick of table. I ordered sardines for starter and wife had mussels both were excellent taste. Main course I had cajun seasoned swordfish excellent wife had red mullet on a bed of paella. I highly recommend this restaurant
