THE PRESS SAYS
"George Fisher with the Suter waterproof tester in the shop provides not only an interest but a solution to the age-old complaint "This waterproof isn't"." Tony Lack Outdoor Retailer Autumn 1999
"Buying the wrong stuff can be horribly expensive, and can ruin the whole outdoor experience, so it's worth finding an outdoor shop offering sound advice.
I always start a serious search for new gear with a visit to George Fisher in Keswick. It's big, filled to bursting with really exciting stock; then there's it's fascinating history and the elegant lay out of the building (not to mention the superb tea-room), but the jewel in Fisher's crown is undoubtedly its enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly staff." Faith Harrison. Cumbrian Life Autumn 1999.
"Keswick - the largest northern resort in a pleasant enough place of grey slate, through it's often overcrowded. Shops selling outdoor gear line the mainstreet, but the best, George Fisher, is tucked away behind the quaint Moot Hall (now the Tourist Office). The photogenic facade draws serious walkers and climbers from far and wide - the stock is top of the range. A brilliant coffee shop lets you consider prospective purchases at leisure."
