We had an extended journey 150 miles due to traffic jams ...ready for a quick hot dinner ... we always return to this chippy - friendly staff and freshly prepared food to order. Sadly no haddock available - but 3x tasty cod and chips arrived within a few minutes ...reasonably priced for the area and delicious ... many thanks for... More

A nice portion, good chips and fish was cooked to order. I recommend going here if you are looking at staying in for the night instead of eating out.

Called in on passing due to fab smell. Not disappointed, these were the best fish and chips we have had in a long time. Six very happy customers.

I popped in here with my wife in August 2014 after a walk along the lake. We were very impressed. The food was great and reasonably-priced, the service friendly, and sitting outside we encouraged passers-by to go in. A wonderful find that we'll be going back to next time we're in the area.

We always come to this chip shop when we are in bowness. It's the best chip shop around bowness. There are different sized portions of fish and chips. So if you wanted small ask for small but the large fish and chips the fish is big. Even a child's portion of sausage and chips was massive. I have fussy children... More

Ordered fish and chips for family....... We were starving and when we opened them were shocked to see how tiny the fish was. They obviously put loads of chips in to cover up how tiny the fish was. The fish was the worst we had ever had ....very tasteless!! I phoned up to say how disappointed we were and said... More

Having done some research on reviews, Seafarers seemed the best and so we decided to treat ourselves on our last day of visiting lakedistrict. What a dissapointment, although service was good, when we took our cod & haddock back, we were so surprised the portion of a large fish was tiny! I cannot imagine how the portions would be like...

Lovely fresh fish and chips, the best i have tasted in a long time. Quick friendly service. There is seating outside which you can use to eat your food. Wonderful.

We stayed in Bowness on Windermere for our 2week summer break and as you do on holiday fish and chips is a must but finding a good fish and chip shop can be difficult. Well if you're in Bowness look no further than Seafarers. This is top quality with a very friendly welcome and freshly cooked food which you're asked... More

We had fish and chips from this takeaway on a Saturday night. Whilst there wasn't too much to complain about, fish and chips could and should be so much better. We were absolutely starving having walked up Scafell pike during the day, but not even this managed to get the quality of the fish and chips up to the average... More
