“This review is not for the restaurant, the takeaway.”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Firstly, let me state that when we found this fish n chip shop we had already eaten some snacks, so were not hungry.
We actually called at the newsagents shop 50 metres down the road & asked him if there was a butcher selling authentic cumberland sausages in town, he directed us to the Kingfisher saying that they are the best sausages around. We took his advice & bought £15 worth of the cumberland rings, the owner of Kingfisher told us that they were only made that morning & were the BEST.
Well, Mr fishmonger, you were quite right, they are the BEST, in fact they are the most superb cumberland sausages ever. When we are in Keswick next time we will phone our order in & also try some of your allegedly wonderful fish & chips, it seems from previous reports on trip adviser that they too are the BEST.

Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Best fish and chips I've ever had! The batter was so crisp it just melted in your mouth. Definitely recommended to anyone.

“Gluten free chips!!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

As a sufferer of coeliac disease, opportunities for gluten free chips from a fish and chip shop are few and far between,but these were excellent! Good price, and tasty!
