Easily the best fish I have eaten in the UK for a long time. My wife and I booked as a result of excellent trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The booking of tables is scheduled by the capacity of the kitchen rather than the number of tables and it works. We had tiger prawns and scallops -... More

We ate here on the first of three nights in Windermere, based on reading the Trip Advisor review. I agree with everything that's been said - the food was wonderful and if there is anything negative to say, it is only that the portions were too large. We tried to eat here aagain on out third night, but it was... More

Nicely welcomed and the food was top quality. Visited with my wife. Prawns to start followed by Sea Bream and strawberry tart. My wife had crab and prawns followed by Hake and then sticky toffee pudding. Nothing to knock, everything was great and the service was excellent. Clean and fresh with a great bottle of white. £100 for 2 of... More

My husband and I just fell in love with this little restaurant that serves up giant flavours. Michael was the perfect host with a lovely entertaining side. I started with a delicious crab and prawn salad and my husband has yummy queen scallops. We both fought over his whole Dover Sole and my Halibut. We will be back here every... More

Stumbled across this online when looking for somewhere special for my boyfriends birthday meal. as we are both seafood fans it was an obvious one for me and we booked very early to avoid disappointment. The food itself was absolutely exquisite, the venue is simply decorated but with an elegant ambiance and the staff are courteous and knowledgable about their... More

Came down early as we had not booked. It was all reserved but they snuck us in. Lovely small restaurant and lovely couple. Best seafood I've had in a long time. I had swordfish and my boyfriend had monkfish. We shared a starter and are leaving full. I highly recommend you to book and go!

When we arrived we were greeted by Michael, the owner, who was very friendly and welcoming. I had booked our table (as advised between 2pm-5) and we arrived 10 mins early and our table was ready for us. Simple!! Michael was attentive and the perfect host. We ordered both starters and mains and the food was fresh and delicious. The... More

We ate here twice during our weeks stay in Windermere. The restaurant is small and you do need to book. It is run by the owner and his wife. The menu changes daily with whatever fresh fish is available. Probably the best fish restaurant I have eaten in and the coconut parfait was sublime. A must if you are staying... More

We were really lucky to get a last-minute booking at Hooked. We had looked at the good reviews and were recommended to it by some local people. The menu choice isn't huge but everything is cooked fresh and the quality of the seafood is excellent. The owner and staff were very helpful and friendly. The prices are a wee bit... More
