The Fish and chips were one of the best I've ever had.... Just over £5 for a supper and worth every penny. Lovely crispy, light batter and beautiful fresh fish with fat chips. Will definately be back!... and they leave the salt and vinegar on the counter for you to season your own food! Perfect for a sunny afternoon on a bench by the lake.

We came to bowness Sat 5 July and after eating in another establishment we had an indian takeway back at home waiting to be eaten.
Our nephew decided he wanted chips with this and so off we went in search of a portion of chips to take back with us. £2.80 for a portions of chips was robbery without the violence. The portion was so small we were absolutely disgusted and will never go here again. Ever.

What could be nicer on a lovely evening that getting a portion of fish and chips and sitting down next to lake - perfect. Great fish and chips. Freshly cooked fish and chips. Only a small queue but went down quickly. We will be back.

A very popular fish and chip shop in the centre of Bowness on Windermere. There is seating in the back and also limited table and chairs outside the front of the shop. The fish and chips were very tasty and on a lovely sunny evening we sat outside. Within 5 minutes walk from the shop is benches and seats overlooking Lake Windermere so another ideal place to sit. Jjust watch the swans.
