“Friendly and great food!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Recently visited Hooked after seeing the reviews on TA. We were not disappointed and had the most wonderful evening. The food was brilliant, the service was efficient and friendly, and with Jack Johnson playing in the background, a perfect ambiance. We will visit again. The fish is fresh and the wine list comprehensiveyet affordable. The sticky toffee pudding is to die for! Oh, and we bought a photo by local photographer so not only have a keepsake of the Lakes, but a reminder of a great evening. It was wrapped in bubble wrap by the owner and made it back to Denmark in one piece :-) Thankyou for a lovely evening.

“We're hooked”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We were in the lakes for our wedding anniversary - during the floods! The appalling weather was more than made up by a glorious 'lakes' welcome wherever we went - and the amazing food. Hooked did not disappoint. A warm, welcoming restaurant and a perfect host. Mouthwatering menu with plenty of choice and a great wine of the month. Just beware Hooked closes in December for a well earned rest.

We found Hooked on Trip Advisor so thanks to all the other reviewers!

“Great food and wine”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

My husband and I went to Hooked after reading the reviews on
tripadvisor. We were only in Windermere for one night on our way up to Scotland so we wanted to make the best of it! Hooked certainly did not disappoint! The food was fab and the wine that was recommended was also great. Don't be put off by the simple appearance of the restaurant, it's got a great ambience as well as great food. A must if you are in Windermere.

“Seafood Heaven”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We visited Hooked on a Saturday evening. We booked there as we love seafood. The menu changes daily depending on the catch of the day ensuring everything is fresh. We went for the razor clams - delicious (I can't remember being served razor clams in a restaurant before) and the mackerel. We then went for a dish of hake and a dish of cod. The fish was cooked to perfection; the portions were huge; the sauce and sides were beautifully flavoured and yet simple. No fuss at Hooked: you get ultra fresh seafood (plenty of!) perfectly cooked with nice flavours. The desserts were also fantastic. Great restaurant concept. The bonus is also the Australian owner who is genuinely friendly and very chatty. We'd come back to Windemere just for the sake of dining at Hooked again.
