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?

I have had my rucksack for 38 years, a trusty Karrimor Good Earth. I thought a more modern one may now be called for. An assistant helped me select one after asking a number of questions. 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

Needed walking boots for my wife and I and from the reviews on Trip Advisor George Fisher in Keswick was the place to go, we had great service and advice by our assistant Caroline who wasn't pushy to sell us expensive boots so we purchased 2 pairs of Meindl walking boots which we are very pleased with with.

I arrived in the Lake District only to realize my hiking boots had sprung a leak. Not what you want in the wettest place in England. So off it was to GF for some detailed discussion with very patient and knowledgable staff, who equipped me with a new pair that was a step up from my current useless Ahnus. I... More

Although it is not immediately obvious due to its location at the top of the store, it is possible to have an excellent lunch in the cafe at George Fisher’s in Keswick. It was busy while we were present and there is not a lot of seating but it proved an enjoyable experience. My wife had smoked chicken and linguine,... More
