This is a character listed property of over 400 year old that has recently undergone a major re-furbishment. With a new commercial kitchen, contemporary style furniture, restored original wooden flooring from the deck of a ship and hand painted murals, this is a family business of over 105 years old that is one, if not the oldest, in the Lake District. During the day, downstairs we are a fully licensed bistro style restaurant with traditional Italian style take away fish & chips. In the evening, by prior arrangement, we open to offer a private dining experience. We are not like the other restaurants in the area with a large busy bar. Our ambition is to remain very small and exclusive. We can cater for between 2 and 12 people each evening with the facility becoming yours. For larger parties, you have your own chief and waitress. We offer a standard menu but prefer to design a menu of seafood and steaks as you prefer. We offer a fine wine list, some beers and a selection of fine Scottish malt whiskey.

staff very friendly and attentive, was expecting fresh cooked produce but was clearly frozen food. Food tasted ok and was suitably heated but didn't live to expectations which is a shame as he staff where eager to please.

We were looking to stop for lunch on Saturday and saw someone sitting inside with a massive home made pie chips and gravy so went in.

We've been here various times for fish and chips which are always nice, so we thought we would try out the seafood restaurant. The food which we had was fresh and very tasty! When the food arrived it was nicely presented. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very relaxed and the service was brilliant, definitely worth a visit.

I have walked past this place a hundred times, thinking it was just a fish and chip shop. How wrong I was. I decided to go in one day and was very pleased that I did. The staff were extremely friendly. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the food was great. Added to that, they sell wine as well. That... More

Look down at the floor , this place is truly filthy ! Dog wondering round in food prep area , small portions of unfresh (& unidentified) fish also full of bones , chips also disgusting and greasy. Should be closed down or at least INSPECTED by the food standards authority .

By local standard poor portion sizes and not the best cooked - portion sizes are about half that of other local fish and chip shops. And that's all it is a fish and chip shop.

The chips appeared warmed up, yet still hard. The fish was poor. This was a group order organised for a work do and it was really disappointing.
