The Best View for your Fish & Chips

in the Lake District

Welcome, Willkommen, ようこそ!, Bienvenu,  欢迎光临, Bienvenido

Ambleside Fish & Chips overlooking the lake at Waterhead Bay









We welcome you to Ambleside Fish and Chips, located on the shores of Lake Windermere a few yards from the ferry terminal at Waterhead Bay. From our shop and terrace you will enjoy stunning, unbeatable views over the water and through to the beautiful Langdale Pikes and beyond.


Dine inside or outside protected from sun and rain by our magnificent new umbrellas, alternatively have your order wrapped to take away in our bio-friendly boxes and packaging.


Our lightly battered, freshly caught fish with the finest frying potatoes are prepared from scratch and cooked throughout the day, in the best quality vegetable oil.


All our meat products are fried separately from our fish and chips and our Chicken Bites and Fillet Burgers are both Halal.


We also offer the alternative of a gluten free batter. This can be cooked in our main pans or alternatively with 15-20 mins notice, fish and chips can be fried in our pan reserved especially for our more sensitive gluten-free customers.


We are very conscious of cross-contamination and take care to ensure our customers requiring a fully gluten free meal can enjoy their fish and chips too. If you prefer your fish and chips to be fried in our gluten free pan, if possible, please call in advance (015394 33688).


Party bookings welcome and advance orders taken on our call and collect service. If you would like a quote for a large party booking (20+ meals) please phone one of our friendly team members.
