Good chippy

Had fish & chips from Seafarers tonight as a quick replacement to eating out due to closed kitchen at the Boathouse at Fallbarrow caravan park. The fish was cooked to order and was lovely, portion sizes good and the curry is great!! Would definitely recommend.

We went to the sea farers with my family last night. We had lots of fish And chips. The chips were beautiful. My fish was perfect but some of the other fish had an awful lot of batter on, Too much!! The peas, curry sauce and gravy were to die for. Thank You

We were recommended this by the tourist information shop as the best fish & chips store in Bowness. Food was great, but wasn't the best fish&chips we had ever had, and we had to add ALOT of salt and vinegar. Was extremely busy and could tell it was a local's favourite.

Orderd 2 lots of Haddock and chips and when me and my girlfriend started eating the food was shocked at the fish been tasteless and the chips were the same and looked like they were frozen chip and in no way freshly made.

Dead easy to find, near the car park. Simple fare done right, beautiful food. Not overpriced like a lot of places in Bowness.

The food is freshly cooked and nice and hot, however we received the smallest piece of fish we have ever received in a fish restaurant, covered in a huge amount of batter. So very poor value.

The smallest piece of fish I've ever seen leave a chippy, covered in enough batter to coat an entire shoal of fish, dripping with grease sufficient to soak through the entire of this weeks gazette rendering it unreadable! neither was I impressed by the fact that there was a kid of no more than 5 years old wandering around the...
