Really enjoyed our 'pensioners special' £5.99.
Large fish and a good portion of chips, pot of tea and bread and butter.
Lovely friendly staff, spotlessly clean
Thank you for a lovely lunch

The food is quite good, but the service is terrible I have been here many times and have seen a gradual decline in the service and a hiking of prices. On several occasions I have heard contemptuous remarks about customers from staff. Get them in. Get them out. Get their money. In its defence this appears to be the attitude of most businesses today in keswick. A pity as this chippie and keswick in general has declined over the years....

We arrived as they had just passed their serving time, but that did not matter. We had a delicious fish and chips meal in the upstairs part. With views over to Moot Hall. Excellent value, staff most helpful.

Have been going to this chippy for years as it's always reliable. Took some friends and although the fish and chips are still great quality the service was terrible. We were served by a miserable sarcastic young man who was rude to not only us but other customers. I asked for extra vinegar (I don't usually have to) he may as well not have bothered. The fish and chips were both nice but the almost complete absence of salt and vinegar spoilt the experience. To add insult to injury on asking politely for a fork I was directed sarcastically to 'over there' 'where it says forks'.

You can sit upstairs or take out. No airs and graces just nice traditional fish and chips with friendly staff and decent service.
