Find yourself in Penrith? Feeling a bit peckish and in the mood for some British comfort food? Stop in at Angel Lane Chippie and savor what is some of the best fish and chips you'll find in Cumbria. The steak pie is also supposed to be excellent, but we were too stuffed to try it. Go ahead, ignore the calories, and treat yourself to the UK's favorite meal.

We stopped in Penrith on a Friday evening on our way to Cockermouth. We were lured by the "award winning" fish and chip shop signs but nearly put off by the queue that was already forming at 6pm. I'm glad we stayed put. We bought haddock and chips x 2, to eat outside. The chips were thick, well cooked, hot, just a bit of crunch; the fish was a good size with light, bubbly, crisp batter, obviously just freshly cooked. Best fish and chips I've had in years. (Good job I don't live in Penrith - I'd eat there all the time and would be twice the size I am now !)

We have been to this chippie twice on our visits to Penrith
The food is ok but have had better in lesser places.
We had our dog with us so we had to wait for an outside table as there are only two .
We ordered food and drinks which we were quite happy with and spent nearly ten pounds.
We asked if they had a toilet facility and the girl directed us upstairs .... The guy I met on the stairs was quite rude when I said I was just looking for the toilet....... ."
"It's only for cafe customers "was his reply .
"But we are eating outside cos we have the dog "I said.
"Only for cafe customers "was his curt reply and he disappeared .
I was fuming at his attitude .
Needless to say we will not be going there again.
The food is overrated and we did not like the discrimination.
We could have had a plate of chips each upstairs and been allowed to wash our hands. ....spend a tenner outside and you get nowt ..except rudeness.
In fact the rubbish bin outside was overflowing too ... They wouldn't have the rubbish off their own tables...we had to look for a council provided bin.
They can whistle for custom from us now.
My party of pensioners for next weekend will go elsewhere .

Enjoyed the fish and chips which were reasonably priced. We ate in the cafe up the stairs, the floor had the remnants of an earlier diner's meal but to be fair it was late in the day and they were still busy so can forgive them this time! The waitress was pleasant and the service was quick.
