Passing through Keswick I stopped for a leg-stretch and some chips. I was very happy with this chip shop - selecting the Cumberland sausage and chips option. Freshly fried, and perfectly served. One happy customer.

Sitting right in the center of town, you can order take away downstairs or hike up to the second floor and get waitress service. A very generous filet of sole and good chips made for a nice lunch
