Looking for recommendations for takeaway food for an evening meal. We're going to be self-catering for a week from next Saturday and have a seven month old baby so don't fancy cooking every night.

Love all types of food so any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance 😀

1. Re: Takeaway

Can't help you with takeaways I'm afraid (though I'm sure someone else will be along soon with some tips), but as an alternative suggestion that involves only a minimal amount of cooking, if you go to Booths supermarket in Keswick and look in their freezer section you will find frozen ready meals of particularly good quality.

All you have to do is take them out of the freezer and stick them in the oven, and they really are quite a bit better than your average supermarket ready meal.

If I remember correctly, they are these ones:

Another vote for Booth's food.

There are 2 chip shop on the main street and I think Casa Bella the Italian by WH Smiths does take away.

+1 for Booth's ready meals. Big selection, "Cook" range are high quality but not cheap.

3 chip shops

1 Indian -does take away

1 Thai ( Star of Siam) does take away (not well advertised)

2 Chinese do take away

Pizza take away.

I can highly reccomend the fish and chips from the chippy opposite Wetherspoons. Excellent.

Any idea if any of the takeaways mentioned do deliveries? Staying in Threlkeld.

Can't think of any place that delivers, but plenty of takeaways, from fish and chips shop, Chinese and pizza places.

Would not recommend Pizza Panorama on High Street.

Agree with Casa Bella and the Thai Restaurant (Star of Siam)

Wetherspoons a good option for cheap and cheerful- earlier the better I suggest.
