Stuffed after a perfect meal!

We experienced excellent and attentive service and we enjoyed a superb meal. The swordfish tasted amazing so we would highly recommend. Thoroughly enjoyed the crab and prawn bruchetta and lemon curd cheesecake with coconut ice cream too. Thank you

Booked as recommended and was not disappointed. Very small and personal restaurant with rustic feel. Choice of about 6 starters and 6 mains, all fish and good servings. Fish was delicious but slightly overcooked. Sweets were delicious. Plenty of parking on the nearby roads in the evening. Will definitely go again when in the area.

Michael knew we were coming for his scallops, not available the night we went. It was also difficult to understand why he only accepts bookings, a couple walked in and there were available tables, but he turned them away???

Wow! What a great menu. This is a fish restaurant with imagination and flair. It is unpretentious in style but committed to the quality of ingredients and preparation. When next in Windermere we will certainly pay a return visit. Take note: you definitely need to book your table or you will be disappointed.

Let me make a very important point. BOOK! This restaurant has that mix of small capacity and popularity that turning up on a whim could lead to disappointment, and believe me, NOT eating here would be a disappointment. Once here you'll be glad you came and the cooking will speak for itself!

Another visit to one of our very favourite places to enjoy the very best of sea food. Wonderful quality, good 'healthy portions' that make sure you are far from being hungry on the way out ! All well presented by friendly owner and staff. We will be back again !!

Small, unpretentious restaurant but boy, can they cook fish !! We selected Hooked because of the comments on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Friendly, helpful staff and a great meal. Serving totally fish, Hooked is a stand-out in the Windermere and Bowness areas. The owner, Michael, if an Aussie (but don't hold that against him !!) If you are... More

Arrived for an 8 o clock table to a warm welcome. Food was tasty and fresh . I had mussels then sea bass, both cooked well and delicious. My hubby chose king prawns in garlic for his starter - he got 6! sword fish for his main which he throughly enjoyed. The desserts also looked great but we were too... More
