Apart from a great range of outdoor gear, George Fisher has an excellent cafe on the top floor. Locally sourced food, great service. It's always our first stop in Keswick

The shop itself is outstanding with extremely knowledgable staff, but the cafe is a must visit!! A small, cozy area upstairs, with attentive staff and lovely meals, cakes and drinks plus free wifi - will certainly be going back!

It certainly has everything for the outdoor person and the staff are helpful and knowledgeable. It is rather expensive but the gear is of a high quality so if you want good stuff look here. We've being going to shop at George Fisher for years and never been let done. Their boot fitting service is second to none and they... More

Never miss coming in here when we visit Keswick. The cafe is brilliant with picturesque views of Catbells. All cakes are very tasty and homemade. Staff are wonderful and who doesn't love outdoor kit?

The one he selected for me and fitted for me was superb and I used it for the fortnight I was in the lakes... More

Whenever we're in the Lake District we stop at GF as it's by far the best outdoor store in the region. They have everything you could need and the staff is extremely knowledgable. A show sale an helped me try several approach shoes, carefully explaining the strengths and weaknesses of each. But bring a fat wallet as the prices are... More

Sells good quality top of the range gear. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly... Lovely coffee shop plus free wifi. Shop is well laid out with no clutter. Staff take time to talk and explain things and they really know their stuff
