Frederick’s is a place in Cockermouth you can stroll down to and be sure of a good feed and a good time whatever hour of the day: be it for coffee and brunch, a hearty lunch, or a tipple and some tapas in the evening. Local hospitality guru Joe Wilson has teamed up with Italian-Cumbrian front-of-house expert Nikki Bruno to bring almost half a century of combined industry experience to Frederick’s, and the food covers a broad spectrum – from modern European fare like the aforementioned tapas or authentic Italian pizzas, to homely British standards which showcase premium quality local Cumbrian products. Make a reservation and head straight to Station Street before everyone else does.

Since heavy floods in 2009, many buildings in Cockermouth have been slow to recover to their former glory, but one on Station Street has been reinvigorated to a state that’s even more glorious than it used to be. The former job centre in Cockermouth is now Frederick’s, a vibrant bar, lounge and bistro that really makes use of the venue’s capabilities, allowing space for over a hundred people in a cool and wonderfully sleek setting. Frederick’s is fitting no matter the time with genuine quality around clock, but that said, the a la carte is where the talent of the chefs really shines through.
Tapas are the star of the show here and these little plates of goodness offer flavours from around the globe. Have each person in the group choose two or three and then prepare to fill your boots. The Persian lamb, Vietnamese sticky pork curry and the chicken schnitzel are all delightful, as is the goats cheese with Cumberland sauce and the black bean and fred lentil chilli. Should you not feel like sharing (we often don’t), Frederick’s also offer a hearty selections of larger main courses that again showcase international flavours and cooking techniques. Right on Station Street, this really is one of the most intriguing restaurants in Cockermouth and we really can’t enough of it.
Lovely food and cocktails! Kids very well catered for with children's menu that included the all essential ice cream for pudding. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant area.
Always very good here good and serve ice very good atmosphere and cleanliness also very good I would go back anytime to eat here .
Great food and lovely atmosphere - quick service and nice wine. Excellent puddings! The cocktails were lovely and staff very pleasant would recommend as always
Another lovely meal at Fredericks, nicely laid table on arrival, comfy chairs, prompt courteous service. The food was excellent. Michael the manager always makes you feel so welcome. We will be back.
Very nice meal the starter was very generous and nicely presented the steak was delicious and properly cooked to my request . Good service and nice surroundings- will go again ! The only down side for me was that nearly all the tapas dishes contained chilli which I can't eat but I love tapas so would have liked to have seen more dishes without chilli !
Food : Fish cakes cold had to be replaced risotto more like rice pudding and chocolate brownie with white chocolate sauce and Irish cherries, came with no cherries and a dark chocolate sauce. We have been several times and the food and service was good but tonight was a disappointment hopefully a one off they were busy and may have overstretched themselves
Food was amazing. The sharing platter was nicely presented. However we weren't told that we'd be given two lots of prawns instead of calamari. Atmosphere was lovely. Food served promptly. Service courteous
Beautiful place food was lovely although very small portion i ordered duck and it was only served with broccoli and no sauce of any kind.
At table almost 20mins before drinks order taken. Wrong bottle of wine brought to table. Very expensive for quality of food- not good value. Room off-puttingly brightly lit. Would not go again.
