Dined at Hooked this evening. Planned a relaxing evening, starting with an aperitif; however it was not to be. We were shown to our table and given a food menu. I asked if we could have a drinks menu first; the response was "first we would like you to order food". Reluctantly we did; and then came the drinks menu.... More

Dined on a Saturday night--hotel owner got us a booking. Spendy, but well worth it. The proprietor was very busy, but he found time to chat, and he's quite an interesting host.

Yes I am, enough said! But trip advisor says I need to write 100 words as a minimum, so.... The food is exceptional.

Ate in Hooked on Saturday evening following a recommendation from the Guest House we were staying in in Windermere. Hooked was the pick of the recommendations, absolutely faultless. My wife had a prawn starter, I paced myself for dessert as there was a cheeky little sticky toffee pudding with my name on it, which she loved. We both had the... More

Hooked is regularly fully booked. I found out to book between 2pm and 5pm, and rang just after 2pm to get a table for 2 that night. I really liked the idea of spreading bookings 15 minutes apart, so new arrivals get specific attention and the kitchen can also manage food orders - clever. This is a proper seafood restaurant,...

Recently visited this restaurant with the wife - what can I say?! A nice candlelit setting at night - there are only about 10 tables so it's nice and quiet, so you can enjoy your meal and the company! The meals were probably one of the best I've had. In terms of value - at £20 or so a main... More

The aphorism “you get what you pay for” certainly applies to this excellent restaurant. No, it’s not the cheapest but it is one of the best fish restaurants we have eaten at. Small, friendly, excellent service, the swordfish in peppercorn sauce was superb as was the hake. Would definitely recommend.

Quite simply the best seafood restaurant I've eaten in. You have to book, it's a must. I had fresh sardines followed by grilled bream and selfish risotto. Totally amazing. And the sticky toffee pudding was (according to my wife) the best she's ever had. Worth coming to a B&B in Windermere to eat dinner at Hooked.

We ate at Hooked last night. I booked 2 weeks ahead, which was a good thing as they were eventually fully booked. The service was attentive, the staff friendly and chatty but the food was amazing. The mussels and broth were absolutely delicious and my husband who had sardines and paella said it was the best fish restaurant he had... More
