A little disappointed

Go here whenever we are in The Lakes but was slightly disappointed this trip. Fish and chips seemed very greasy not up to the usual standard. Not sure if it has changed ownership.

3 stars may be unfair. This is a chippy. Opposite the Beatrix Potter exhibition in Bowness. Price is reasonable for the area. Ordered sausage chips and gravy. The chips were spot on and the sausage wasn't bad. Unfortunately the gravy was tasteless and I had too much. In part this was my fault as I had the option of it... More

The only fish and chip shop in England to which I would make a second visit. Fish cooked to order and excellent. Chips good and not oily. Staff very pleasant.

Was quite nice food and reasonably priced a cheap quick tea. Very friendly staff, but the regular portions could be considered a small portion elsewhere.

We've tried a few fish and chip shops in Windermere and have always been disappointed, until we found this place. Excellent food, cooked perfectly, fresh and served by very friendly staff. Well worth a try when in the area.

We were staying self catering in Bowness for a weekend with the kids, but did not want to spend all our time cooking. This was a great find and some of the best fish and chips we have had in a long time. Fresh and dwarves quickly. The batter was crispy, not too greasey and the fish lightly cooked. We... More

Having previously tried the fish and chips elsewhere and been disappointed we came upon Seafarers purely by chance while out exploring the area and decided to give them a go, well we were certainly not disappointed this time round, the food is cooked freshly to order, the fish was well cooked with a light crispy batter and lovely thick and...

Ordered cod and chips and whilst it was freshly cooked, I was left slightly disappointed. The fish was really small but the chips were a decent size for a tourist trap. Back home, my local chippy serves a fish the size of a whale and chips that must take a full 5lb bag to make. For that reason I'm spoilt,... More
