REVIEWS

Have a read of some of our recent reviews across our restaurants

We ordered Calamari with sweet potatoes, Spicy Chicken wings and a Shawarma. Food tasted good, the mojito was 6/10. It seems the menu changes quite often and we weren’t aware. We picked the place by looking at the menu on their google maps details, and I was looking forward to some mussels. Their current menu’s are posted on the entrance but we didn’t think to look as we thought we had already seen it with photos, and also juggling a toddler along a busy tourist area we didn’t want to stop right by the roadside reading a menu.

But overall we didn’t regret going in there. Service is good too but when we visited at a less busy hour.

Great food, excellent service, and a pleasant environment. I had a wonderful evening with my friends and family.

Nipped in for some lunch on a rainy Sunday. Great atmosphere (loved the tunes). Food was a decent size and reasonably priced. They even swapped out my coffee without a second thought when I accidentally ordered the wrong one. A must visit.

Excellent food with amazing service. Would highly recommend. We enjoyed the Classic Pizza, Buttermilk Chicken burger and Moules et Frites. All extremely tasty and the Biscoff cheesecake for dessert was next level!

Amazing. Was my first visit to Hooked and I will certainly be going back. The food was such good quality, best fish restaurant I’ve ever been to. Would recommend the monkfish tail with soft shell crab

What a fantastic restaurant! Great food, great service and a great location. My partner and I found the restaurant on trip advisor and booked as soon as we saw the menu and positive reviews. I would highly recommend for all seafood lovers and would happily go again.

I have to say this place is BETTER than most of the Michelin seafood restaurants in London! We have been to several Michelin places in London so we know how they are overrated and overpriced, this Hooked is absolutely worth a trip. We ordered one lobster and one salmon, they put so much effort into there food, it tasted amazing it looked amazing! Also their dessert is so good! We came to this local restaurant without any higher expectations, we thought it just a normal local seafood restaurant, but the food completely changed our minds!

Great food, however, extremely tourist taxed… would be great if they offered a locals discount to avoid paying the crazy’s prices local businesses charge for the tourist trade.

Aaron Pares

What a fantastic restaurant within the region, serving excellent seafood, with good quality and surprise cooking method. The main dish “Scallop, Crayfish & Prawn Gratin” is absolutely an art piece, with mouth watering sauce which really elevate the crayfish. The Salt Cod Croquettes is also highly recommended.

5 star+ the staff very friendly and accommodating, the food was amazing. We had lasagne, pizza and beef stroganoff. Cheesecake and chocolate fudge cake for dessert. Dog friendly too!

Yvonne Musk

The food was delicious and plentiful. Very pleasant surprise at the bill too, very reasonable. Amazing value. The staff were absolutely lovely. Good selection at the menu. I would highly recommend going if you’re in Kendal.

Melanie Slade

Excellent food, the pizzas were spot on and a good price, varied selection. Drinks were expensive but again a good selection and high quality. The welcome was not over friendly, but the waiter who took the order was ultimately helpful. Overall a positive experience, but could be even better

John Baker

Really lovely! Me and my partner shared but every meal was delicious. The pizza is very good and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

Sapore is a wonderful place to eat – great service, lots of choice, and delicious food. This is the only place in the UK I’ve seen that does carbonara authentically (no cream! Served with guanciale instead of just bacon), and one of the few places that serve fresh pasta. The risotto was excellent; strongly flavoured, rich, and a much bigger portion than it first appears. For the lunch time price of £8.95, these menu items were a steal, but they would be well worth the full evening prices as well.

We missed out on the desserts this time, but we won’t on our next visit!
