Visited on a busy Saturday lunchtime, always a good sign. We ate in the cafe and had fish and chips, mushy peas, butties & a pot of tea, and it was absolutely delicious. Very nice atmosphere and lovely staff. Thank you.

One of the better chips shops in kendal, not the cheapest. The pensioner special is excelent. Freshly made piping hot and tasty, fish can be a bit greasy. Good friendly service from young waitresses, seating in or out and take away

Been a few times and excellent fish & chips but last week was a disappointment as the cafe was freezing. The windows were all steamed up because of this, and the small heater at the back could not adequately heat the large cafe.

We had a huge portion of fish and chips - freshly fried fish with very crispy batter. Chips fresh out of the frier too. They gave a gluten free batter too. Brilliant food & great value
