If you don’t mind travelling out of Bowness-on-Windermere and head a little further north to Windermere itself and you love seafood dishes, Hooked is a great choice for fish lovers.

Delivering a menu with a fresh seafood focus which can change from day to day depending on the catch, you won’t be disappointed at how fresh these dishes really are. From lobster and hake to the more exquisite swordfish, there’s plenty of freshly caught fish to choose from.

It is important to note that this is a fish restaurant, so you won’t find any other meat dishes on the menu other than fish, but that doesn’t stop the portion sizes being more than generous for the price.

All in all, fish lovers? Go take a look!

You can find Hooked at Tudor House Ellerthwaite Square Tudor House, Windermere, LA23 1DP
